Gunners Garage


So has your life changed because the Batmobile sold for over $4 million or because the first new Corvette with serial number 1 brought $1.1 million in a charity sale? I watched a bit of the Arizona auctions on TV — just a bit. It didn’t take long to get tired of all the ads and promotions and turn off the TV.

I’m glad the “boyz” are having their fun in the sun, but I’d be satisified if I found the cheap ’55 Chevy coupe that I need for my gasser project. I’ve found a couple in my $2,500 price range, but not the right one yet. So I’ll be checking out eBay and Craig’s list tonight. I just don’t have much time to watch guys pay crazy money for cars that don’t give them any more happines than I get from driving my cosmetically-challenged MG Tf.

    I’ve always had a problem with auctions. For the most part they artificially inflate values and those prices get passed onto us regular guys in the form of more expensive parts and basket case ‘Cudas become hot items. I like the fact that a lot of rare and unique cars are finding homes but the media always focuses on the monetary value. Where’s the passion for the hobby or a paticular car? Being a fellow MG owner it’s nice to have a car that isn’t on the radar. The parts are still cheap and the cars are a ton of fun and British car nuts are a great group of people!
