Awlrite ya hayseeds...this is YOUR chance to buy a genuine, bona-fide, no-holds-barred, no excuses, living piece of Corvette history.
Be the ONLY one on your block(and likely your state) to own one of these fabulous vehicles. This is the real deal, folks, and it's a real bargain...shucks, some of you folks prolly got this in pocket change, or even in the cushions of the couch(word is, starting bid is only...$7MIL!).
Bid NOW....bid often...bid loud, and bid for ME!

The locations and owners of all 5 of the original GS have always been known, since the day Zora(was forced to) let them leave the halls of GM. Rest assured, this is the real deal. Previous owners may simply not want their names published...it happens on some of these high dollar cars. Private collectors/"investors" don't always want the publicity...

I figure anyone with $7-8 mil to shell out for this(or any other) car willl prolly have a place to put it...the old "Ain't got no room" just won't cut it, ya'll...
