Must have been a few of them to bid up the price that high.

Still, I would guess that Corvette was about $55K when new and he sold it for $45K 14 years later. NOT a good investment on the sellers side. At the same time, NOT a good price for the buyer either.

I would wager that the guy that bought it doesn't really care about the investment. He just wants a perfect Z06 for his collection. He got one.

Don't forget the 20% or whatever it is for the buyers premium so tack that onto the total. End of the day he bought a brand new car regardless of the year. It'll be put in a garage and looked at twice a year.

Deep pockets and lack of brains. Want to look like a big shot when they really look like a sucker.

Not really. Some guys will spend that much on an diamond ring or a Rolex. Wouldn't you rather have a Z06 with 4 miles on it?

Nope, I'd rather have a Z06 that was driven and had 40,000 miles on it. At 4 miles, it truly is only a museum piece not to be used, unlike the Rolex and diamond ring you referenced. Why buy something I can't enjoy and use as intended when spending my hard earned money?

Or looking at it a different way, I'd rather pay a more realistic price for a Z06 and have enough left over to still get the wife a nice diamond ring too.

If money was not a factor I would rather have the Z06 with 4 miles on it. I would much rather look at that than a diamond ring or watch.

The seller spent more than $50k to buy it and not drive it. Doubt he's very happy.

Barrett Jackson is an amazing auction. I think I would have be really hard pressed to buy a car there. I think they are really over priced. But if the Buyer is happy, I am happy!
