5.5 million dollar Cobra sold at Barrett Jackson

Now that's my kind of car.

I've always been a hugh fan of both the AC Cobra and the GT40

I watched that auction most of last week, but missed the final day. That must have been some interesting bidding. Fords were some of the best selling cars this year. A '68 shelby 500 convertible sold for over 250K too.
Always fun to watch a bunch of guys with waaaay too much disposable income buying up a bunch of old cars. Tough life!

That would be good news to a guy in Milton, IA who owns 2 of them. One Candy Apple Red and one blue. Keep in mind there were only 312 GT500s in '68.

Back in the day when I had a boss I remember he sold an original GT40 for $750,000.00. I bet he wished he had hung onto it.

5.5 million is a lot but I think this will trump it....

If I understand right, this was Carroll Shelby's personal Cobra?

That would make it the Holy Grail of American muscle cars.
$5.5 mil seems like alot for a car, but I'd like to see what it would go for in 5, 10 or 20 years.
