Proof that money knocks common sense out of people. Face it, you cant take it with you and at the end of the day you spent enough money to help those in need for a car you probably wont drive anyways and when you die, your greedy offspring will sell it cash after blowing thier inheritance
That’s pretty negative! I hope folks are driving these beauties at least to weekend car shows to share with everyone.
But I agree about the “sense” – really surprised at some of the high numbers – especially for the Broncos… which were never that great of a vehicle in my view. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder- apparently there were competing similar eyes with money.
