Its up to 48k now. I am targeting this car at $60-65k given how hot the Aerobody market has been. Its a premier example with good pedigree.

Time will tell...

Jonstr, what would you give for getting your car back? Or the Speedster?

I'd probably take the Speedster first. The yellow car is great, but the Speedster is...well, a Speedster. As for what I'd give - I'm out of the market on both, and probably will never be able to afford a Speedster again. :help

Well I was WAY off...sold for $52k. There was no last second surge that we've seen in the past.

The Callaway market is still someone of an enigma...there is little rhyme or reason to how these cars bid on BAT.

Great car at a great price IMO.

Agreed Surf. 1991 CTTC was the fastest convertible car on the planet that year. Don’t understand why these rare “antique” aerobody B2Ks aren’t six figure Corvettes yet.
Anybody know what Speedsters are going for these days?

The last few Series I Speedsters sold for $200k+

That makes this convertible a relative BARGAIN :wtf I mean, yes, the Speedster looks amazing. But is it worth $150k more? :wtf

The listed prices for those offered the past several years. The one fluke was the silver Speedster which McDorman sold at auction a decade ago. That one, his finger was supposedly on the wrong line of his ledger when asked, "do you want to pull the reserve?" He did, but it was for a different car, so that one sold for around 1/2 what he wanted :nono
