Wow, it's not even a genuine HemiCuda but a bastardized version with a 511 engine and a different suspension and transmission.

I guess that there is so much wealth out there and worship of celebrities that this car will sell for an outrageous price.

Don't forget that there is a lot of hype on items like this though.

A few weeks ago there was a report that Anna Nicole Smiths diaries had sold on Ebay for about $500,00, and then they were sold for $59,750 (with the original owner retaining the publishing rights). Seems to be a bit of hype in that report.

^ +1.

About 5 or 6 years ago I saw a General Lee in Australia on ebay that didn't get an opening bid of $39K. Supposedly it was 1 of 26 or something like that.

WTF, how can it be the "original" if it has an engine from 1998? And who's the nutjob bidding $2M?

Chrysler styling went downhill after '67. Which, coincidently, is the year of my car a Plymouth Satellite.

Also, the hemi engine is very heavy, unless it is an aluminum block the "crate hemi" would be like putting a boulder on the front of your car. It wouldn't handle well at all.

$9.9 million with 22 minutes left! (And the line after the high bid is still "Get low monthly payments")

You know no one is paying 10 mil for that car.

If John Schneider already made his opus "Collier & Co" and that movie did not make enough money to finance a "Collier & Co 2", why is he selling off his personal assets to fund the sequel?

I saw an AP story on this, and apparently the bidder is legit. He owns a knife business, or Web site, or somesuch.

Probably one of those hicks who won the lottery and realized they had 245million left after putting new shoos on the pick-up and buying new patio furniture.

This is an astonishing amount for one of many production runs of this famous car.

Until now, I believe the highest price ever paid for an American car at auction was $5.5M for Carroll Shelby's personal Cobra Super Snake.

I bet John is in his garage, right now, working on another one.
