No, Mike Yeager isn't selling the showcase car of last year's FunFest, but there is another replica up for Sale.
 
This Car is up for sale by Volo Auto museum for just under $40K.  I'll be honest and say that this is not something I would want myself, but it sure would be a head turner going down the road or at any show.  This one is not right hand drive, and it doesn't look like they have any documentation, so who's to say if it's just a clone or an actual movie car.
 
They also have a Coyote X from Hardcastle and McCormick TV show as well as a Christine 1958 Fury with documentation from the movie!  I may need to put this place on my vaction stop list for this Spring!

Ya...I seen it advertised too. It's a "Promo" car from the movie. Yager has the actual film car.
You'd have to just have a LOT of disposable money burning a hole in yer pockets to want it...really...what other reason could you have?

Dude!  I got that movie!!  LOL.  they show the car being made in the movie.   Crazy.   I would rock it, maybe not for that much money. But hell yeah, and if anything it would get alot of people lookin at it at Carlisle or such.

I'm sorry...It is one butt ugly mother. Why anyone would want to chop up a classic Stingray like that is beyond me. For that kind of money you could probably find a real nice big block '73 roadster. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder

To each his own.
Not my cup of tea, but it would definitely get a lot of looks.
I'd rather drive um than show um, so I'll pass on this one.

For that kinda money you could find a very, very nice & clean C3. Although if you could make money for having it at auto shows and events maybe it would be a consideration to buy the Fugly Vette, ifin I had the money.Big%20smile

It's a crime what they did to that vette.   I don't know why Hollyweird feels they have to modify a beautiful car just to have something different for their movie.

According to Yeager there were only 2 true Corvette Summer cars built. There was a primary car and a stunt car built for the movie. This car may very well be the stunt car that was used ....Tuxblacray2008-03-19 17:58:59

I agree  with SUNDEW, butt ugly. Anyone who would do this to a Vette is certainly not  Vette person. Gene

I didn't really see any stunts in the movie. But it was a long time ago since I've seen the movie.
