That's bonkers! 6 miles?!
Yeah, I know. But WHO would've saved it either? It's not like it was a last year or the very last one or anything special.
I wonder what it'll end up going for though.

Whereas this was the LAST Plymouth ever built, supposedly, with only 68 miles on it & it went for $19k:

It was also a nicer spec though & had a 5 speed manual too.

Probably has something to do with this? I think some cars just end up being slated for showrooms/display permanently, which is odd. They mention a fee may be required to get it authorized for road use.

This Neon is currently registered as a Planned Non-Operation (PNO) vehicle.

I don't think you can use that one as an example, really. That one is practically brand new (710 miles). Clean examples with appropriate milage for the age go for far less.
I know, but still that's quite a bit of money....it's cool but it wasn't fast or anything like that.
Clean ones with decent miles are still $20-30k though.

Okay....MK4 R32's are getting stupid expensive (IMO):

Wierd, auction bidding is abnormal looks fishy to me. First bid is 30K, then next bid goes to 75K, then the 77,777. I have doubts that the auction will result in a sale. There has been a new interest in this vehicle and they are going for good prices considering their age. Its hard not to like the MK4 R32 with its nice exhaust note and cool seats. One of my colleagues at work had one, bought it new, it was problem free mostly, trans let go around 30K miles and it was 5K to replace.

JFC there are some deals out there! Shelby GT350R

I almost bought this M4, but didn’t want it badly enough. Still, seems like it would have been a great car.
I thought that Shelby looked like a good deal too until I read the details. Two accidents and they're selling it with the cords showing through the tires. No confidence that car hasn't been beat to hell.

Don't all Mustangs come off the lot with two accidents on record?

No doubt it’s been driven hard.

I once drove a car from LA to Denver on both rear tires showing cords. Made it without problems but Man, that was dumb!
