    I’m thinking the $350k guess is probably closer to what I’d bet.

    I’d guess (up to/closer to) $425,000!
    After all, it is a Boyd Coddington original, and 1-of-a-kind automotive icon!

    Good Luck to all contestants, and Thanks to V8TV for all they do! B)

    What The Hay? Did you change the rules? I thought we were to guess the bid price and whoever got closest without going over, won.

    I thought we were supposed to guess the high bid, not the high bid plus the buyers premium.

    I assume that’s how you arrived at the total of $352,000.

    My bid was $257,000, so I.m sure I wasn’t the closest bidder, I’m just saying it doesn’t seem right to me.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I watched the auction go to 350,000 yesterday, but the Barrett-Jackson site shows $352,000. I’m not sure the website price includes the 10% premium, because that would be $35,000 additional, putting it around $335 – $337,000. So either way, it seems $350,000 was closest without going over.

    What do you think?

    That’s a lot of cash for a car. A car that I would think does not get driven a lot. More of a show car. Just my take on it.

    It was fun trying to put a price on it.

    Thanks
