High school would have been a million percent better if the second one was in my driveway back in the day.

Gooding Auctions: $30 just to watch? I don’t think so

LAmborghini Miura Ferrari 275GTB
I prefer my Italian tarts a little spicier for my $

While I am a sucker for a decent Ferrari or Lamborghini, these two boring dark ones at the Bushwood Scottsdale Gooding auction don’t say $2 million to me.   They don’t say, “ooo, my palate is intrigued and my interest is piqued enough to pay $30 to walk around a tent.” They say “Fuck this, where’s the F50 or the FXX?”  I would rather drive to Vegas and pay $10.

The only thing good about the $30 entry fee to simply browse is that it is 25% of what the RM Auctions sticks you for.

The set of rare factory wire wheels have Lincoln Logo Spinner center caps with white wall radials. The white with red leather trim interior shows in excellent condition and features a 50/50 split bench seat with dual power seats. The seats are soft and comfortable. The car runs and drives flawlessly. The 302 cid V-8 responds effortlessly.
