I totally wanted that car! I was hanging out at Cheetahs Gentlemens Club in Phoenix while I was in town and waiting on the auctions to start. I bid on it, but there was no way I was going to pay 4 million dollars for it. Maybe 2 and a half tops since it's the 1960's model. I know, I know you vintage fans would probably pay 5 or 6, but come on now, it IS a dated car and originally a regular town car. You're buying a 60's automobile for 4 million. The only good news in paying that much for an old car is that for 4 million bucks, you get grandfathered in and don't have to do an e-check or have seat belts when you register it with the MVD. ;)
