    A Monterey Tale

    Ha! Here's a minor anecdote that I thought y'all might enjoy. After all, there's a Z8 in it!

    Did anyone happen to notice the 61 mile, Black Z8 that sold at the Gooding Auction in Monterey for a mear $440k? I know that other Z8's sold much lower over the weekend demonstrating the market is softer but the virtually brand new car went for serious money.

    That has got to be a record. Andrew, are you aware of any Z8 sales that were anywhere close to that amount?

    My wife and I were at the Auction and there were two individuals who obviously wanted the car. A gentleman from the NE sitting next to us was very interested in the car, but his limit was around $275,000, so he dropped out early on. My theory is that based on this, we will see a few very low mileage cars appear all of the sudden and prices will level off somewhat. I know of at least 4 cars with very low mileage (500 miles or less) in private collections, but they could become available at these prices... It was nice seeing the 507 been sold, too.
