I’m came home Friday night and announced what I thought was a brilliant idea! Our daughter is going to need a car soon and she really likes my Magnum SRT8. So I thought, hey let’s give her my Magnum and sell Scarlett and get the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Greg’s comment, “So sell a car that goes up in value to buy a car that will go down in value?” Of course that was my brilliant Pie in the Sky idea for Friday night that was quickly dashed as financially it made ZERO sense.

Of course, it seems now that unless I win the lottery or find a money tree, I won’t ever be able to afford this beauty! But I still love that car! T

ake a look at today’s report from Fox News and what took place at the Barrett-Jackson Auction yesterday! All I can say is ‘un-freaking-believable’!

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with VIN ending in #0001 has sold at auction for an incredible $1.1 million, more than 20 times the expected cost of the latest ‘Vette.

Of course, getting to own the very first example to be sold to the public has its premium, and all proceeds from the sale will be going to benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.

Nevertheless, the amount paid is still staggering.

The final bidder at the Barrett-Jackson auction held yesterday in Scottsdale, Arizona, was NASCAR team owner and avid Corvette collector Rick Hendrick.

Hats off to Rick Hendrick’s for having AMAZING taste in cars!
