How long before the new owner, who has more money than driving ability, wrecks this thing?

I would have bought it, but then I found out it only gets 3 miles per gallon (which is outrageous), so I withdrew my bid.

I dont think you get the whole picture g... It's the entire package of what this car is... the records it has... the way it kicked Enzo in the balls... all of this on top of it's amazing looks... Aesthetics AND Meaning.... Show me another car that has that? Oh and I did your lil google search... I think all that this shows is that not only do you not have your facts straight... you also have a poor sense of what is beautiful....
