This weekend was all about auctions. The Barrett-Jackson auctions and the Scottsdale had some pretty vertiginous sales. What truly marked the weekend was the grandiose showing of the L88-engine `67 Vette coupe.
As you may already know by now, there were only twenty L88s produced back in `67, suited in the latest street style, but they had the heart of a street engine. In theory, they pulled out round 430 horses, but by powering up the beast and fitting a few headers it turned out boosting an amazing amount of 560 horsepower. The value of these vehicles has always been outrageous, but ‘Vette enthusiasts didn`t spear a dime when it came to their special vehicle.
The bidding begun at a little more than $1,000,000, so at the very start it was more than clear that these bidders weren`t joking. They were pretty darn serious. Most of us weren`t surprised at all, regarding that Mecum made a sale of the L88 convertible last September for $3.200,000. To make things clearer, the one sold at the auction of Barrett-Jackson was the one that received the most awards of the total twenty. Since the bidding was finished, someone was four millions poorer.
It maybe is hard to believe, but some peeps are prepared to cash out $4, 000,000 in order to by themselves a good Vette.
We won`t blame you, if you think that this is a rich men`s thing. But, there were numerous deals at the Barrett-Jackson like the `67 pickup Dodge Custom sports special or the modified 1970 El Camino. There are also other hot rods that can be yours for not such a bloated price.
However, many watch the Barrett-Jackson circus in order to amuse themselves. That`s just a whole new world.
