Black/black, big tank Z06 just sold at Mecum for $250K. That's really low...

Would you say the Black/Red Duntov car sold for a fair price?

It looked spectacular in the photos

I think it has a regular tank. Hard to tell the value on those, but I think it did well. It sure looked like a beautiful car, great colors, Duntov, done by Tony Avedision. I would love to have that one.

All-in-all, it looks to me like the Z06 price bubble may have burst.

$396,000 with buyer's premium. A fair price for the seller, I reckon

Looks like a regular tank in this photo:

The black/red car seems pretty special. Cars like that do well, even in a poor market (not that this market is poor).

The other Z06's did not fare nearly so well, with prices well below where they were two years ago. One sold for $275,000, the other one did not meet its reserve, when bid up to $500K (probably a chandelier bid).

Rick drove that car to my house for an engine pulling party several years ago. It drew a crowd that day. Dennis

Two factors....there was a mass exodus of the bidding audience at around 4pm (we assumed for the playoff football games) and Frank Mecum made a deal with the seller. Still I was surprised that the car sold at such a low hammer price. The guy sitting next to me and I thought that it was a $300K+ car any day of the week. Congrats to the buyer. He got a relative bargain.

It would be helpful if you posted a link so we all knew what you're referring to - Thanks GV

If that's Rick's old car, it's been restored since he sold it...

That's not Rick A's car. Rick's was a small tank Z06.
