I've been watching the Barret Jackson auction and a new record was just reached for a 1966 SHELBY COBRA 427 "SUPER SNAKE" with the man himself (Carroll Shelby) watching.
Here is the info on the car if you are interested:http://www.barrett-jackson.com/carli...LotNumber=1301
It eclipsed last years record of $4,000,000.00 for the GM Futureliner (a concept bus from 1953). I saw that one live as well.
The SAME GUY bought both of them - Ron Pratte of Chandler AZ. He also bought the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special (one off concept car) last year for a little over $3,000,000.00.
I understand he may open a museum soon. I've seen pictures of the collection. It is amazing even without the vehicles listed above. I just may have to make a road trip if/when it opens up.
