I didn't want to be greedy.  I think they are only producing "one".
And give some one else a chance to pick up this bargain.

Besides that I would have to sell all of my GM stock to pay for it.Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

And don't forget to add $9.95 shipping.Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Something for the die-hard die-cast collector

I'm surprised no-one has snatched that turd up...

For that amount, ya could buy a real 63 Sting Ray and still have some money left over.  Why get a model if ya can have the real thing?   Maybe I can get the gov't to give me some "bailout" money.  At least I'd be getting something for the money.

Actually, for that money, you could get a real '63 Z06, in good shape...
Some people just have more money than sense...

For that kind of money, I could have a fully restored '57 with dual four barrels and a four speed, could complete a frame restoration of my '74 and still have money left over for a nice garage and shop. Some people have WWWWAAAAAYYYY too much disposable income.
