Yea I saw that in my Hagerty news letter. It was just as out of reach then as it is now.

They were a lot cheaper than that in the '60s when they were just used cars!

I saw a gullwing at friend of my dad's in the 70's. I think they were around $10K. Always wished my dad would have bought one then. Everytime I drive past that house I remember it.
