    It could be cash flow. I haven't heard anything about that but I seem to recall reading a while back that he wanted too make some changes in the museum but I don't remember where. It could be that he just wanted to freshen up the collection with something new. Those race cars weren't worth that much and took up a lot of space for something that you aren't playing with. CERV 1 was a different story. When you have something very special like that for a lot of years it starts to show wear, even though it's in a museum. So what do you do? You could spend several hundred grand restoring the restoration to make it a top quality car again (that you can't do anything with other than display) or you can sell it while it is still presentable for top dollar and move on to something else.

    It's anybody's guess at this point. We will have to wait for something to break or see if there is a change in the museum.

    Default Thursday Corvettes

    Lot# 750.3 Starting off Thursday with a white 1962. It has an aluminum intake and 340 decals on the valve covers but a 300 horse tach. Without checking the numbers who knows which way it was born. It brought a decent price at $52,800.

    Default Lot#771

    There were 150 cars in the sale from the Charlie Thomas collection and this 1971 LT1 was one of them. This was an absolutely gorgeous car that hammered for $56,100.

    Default Lot# 783.1

    This is the first ZR1 built in 2010. Serial number 00001 only has 4239 miles on it and is a real piece of Corvette history. It sold for $88,000. which seems about right for a used ZR1. I guess you get the ser#00001 provenance for free.

    A code 978 Laguna Blue coupe with a 425 horse 427 was a very original and correct car. The hammer fell at $75,900.

    Default Lot# 813

    This 327/300 Powerglide car looks so right that it makes you wonder why they didn't offer yellow in 1963. it needed some fiberglass repair and paint work but the color change didn't seem to hurt the sale price much, if at all, bringing $50,600. at the hammer.

    Panama Yellow is probably my favorite 1958 color. This one is a RPO 469B 283/245 horse with a Powerglide. A very nice, quality restoration that brought $72,600.

    Now here is a really special 1962. I remember one exactly like this on my local Chevy lot back in 1962. I lusted after that car and it was a sad day when the guy that ordered it picked it up and I never saw it again. it sold for $154,000. Here is what Barrett-Jackson had to say about it.

    Default Lot# 825.1

    This 1959 was a nicely done custom without going over the top like so many restomods. One odd thing about it was how high it sat which I noticed right off when I walked up to it. It's altitude didn't seem to bother the bidders as it brought $165,000.

    Default Lot# 837

    This 1967 was upgraded to a 427. Even though, under the hood it looked very correct to 390 horse specs, it had an impressive list of performance mods done to the engine. It should make the winning bidder a nice cruiser for $56,100.
