It's Tom Huber's car, and was extensively restored with all GM parts allegedly. It is a lot of money, maybe more than the market will bear certainly in a Craigslist ad anyway. The only way to get that much green out of it is at a high end auction like a Mecum event, but I don't think the market is there either. Not just for this car, but for anything that isn't a COPO (and even those are not really pulling this kind of dollars anymore), or something special. I think getting 6 figures for anything that isn't a COPO is going to be tough, and getting anything over 150K would require something like a ZL1, old known drag car or really high end L72's. I know i would like to see the market for the first gens to come back to what it was 6 years ago, but it's not back and most likely won't come back as the buyer base is moving one, and the younger buyers just don't care about these cars as much.
I hear often that younger guys don't like our cars. I guess "younger" needs to be qualified. I agree the early twenty's don't seem to have interest but the late 20's to our ages do have interest. I see them at car shows, I see them writing in to the mags, they come up to me and ask questions at the gas stations while I am in the cars. Part of the problem for these "kids" is that it is hard for them to afford these cars. You can't get a normal car loan for these toys, these kids usually don't have fat equity lines. So barriers of entry are high. I do agree that the enthusiasum isn't what it was in the late 60's and 70's but agin it is hard to buy these ole girls if you are not writing a check. Just my 50 year old .02 worth.
