Default 1966 SCCA coupe at Mecum

I ran up to the Mecum auction in Kissimmee last Saturday and saw the coupe sell for over 400,000. Seems like a steep number, but it is a highly documented successful race car. I talked to a fine couple that were in the bidding to 400k even and got out. I asked him what he was going to do with it and he said he would just put it in the garage.

I only took a few pics with the cell phone. They were of small details I was interested in, not the car as a whole. I have thoughts of doing up my '66 koupe in this fashion some day?

I saw that auction via TV. The car was evidently built by Shelby (according to the announcer guys).

If that is the original 33 car it was built by Shelby for Ken Miles, who of course was killed testing the J car.

I would love to see those pix. I am planning on doing mine as a trans am car also. I won't be going with the color but the small details is also what I'm looking for. I have some pics of this car as well if you are interested but I'm guessing since you were there you have seen what you need to see.

I thought the door lights were interesting. Don't know that I could ever buy a car just to sit in a garage though...

The motor sounded soooo nice on this thing. I would drop the kids at school and take the cat to the vet with it! Of course my youngest is 20 and I don't have a cat - but you get the idea. Park this in the garage and forget about it? NO WAY!
