e-BayMotors new record bid

Recommended Posts

Can't you just hear the aristocratic snobs squirming and poo-pooing? The previous automobile record-holder (not thru e-Bay) was $11 million for a bugatti.

This auction was for a Dodge. You gotta love it.

yee-haw!

That's VERY cool!!!

I've always wanted a General Lee. There are a number of sites on the net about real General Lee Chargers from the show being restored. Some of the 'frankenstein-ing' performed to those cars during the show just fascinates the hell out of me.

I love the Dukes of Hazzard & I love the '68-'70 Charger but I

am quite sick to death of seeing every f@#king one converted

into a hugger orange joke.

You know the Chargers I notice? I saw a blood-red 1968 once

with a light (white IIRC) interior and a white vinyl roof. That

was a gorgeous car... and a yellow/black/black I saw at a

car show last summer caught my eye. I do not even stop to

look at Gen. Lee replicas anymore, they're more plentiful than

1966 Mustangs with Shelby stripes & 18" rims.

That being said THIS car is priceless to the right person.

I've always like the Chargers myself, but almost everyone that I know of someone has talked about doing a General Lee job on it. And tha'ts all fine and dandy with me, but I do enjoy other paintjobs a little more.

But $10,000,000? Its asinine to think someone would buy such an undistinctive car like the General Lee. Real or not, reproductions are a fraction of the price and no one can tell the difference.

To put this into perspective, $10 million would almost buy you a restored Futurliner ($4.3m), the 1954 Bonneville ($3m), and the 1954 Olds F-88 ($3.2m) altogether.

Fly:

You're absolutely right, I think if I was a millionare I MIGHT pay $40,000 for

the car since I lkoved the show as a kid... but if I'm going to spend $10 mill

in ONE place it better be an auction for the Last Duesenberg ever made with

the "Tiger Hunt" 1931 Cadillac (bodied by Pininfarina) on a trailer behind it.
