Just think, BJ would charge 2M in fees if the car sold for 10M. Ebay fees on a 10M vehicle are around 100.00...and free if its your first car ad....and a car like that would get exposure on every newspaper and TV station for being on ebay

I would think a auction company would give a significant discount on the standard fees for a car like this. I imagine they approached the owner with a proposal.

It wouldn't surprise me if Mecum is not taking any seller fee for the car. The amount of media coverage they are getting and will get, far exceeds the fee along with having a large group of deep pocket buyers at their auction.

Iconic movie (only due to the car chase)...sure...

Iconic actor...sure

Iconic car in the movie...sure..

But 10 million?? Not sure...

That is a lot of coin for someone to pay..on an already over speculated market..for what is simply a 390 Mustang GT with cool pedigree. The boomer generation is what keeps these prices up there on stock cars..and they are getting out or dying off.

I'm 49 and as I've gotten older I've came to realize for me and the vast majority of people in the hobby....it is the experience and thrill of driving the cars that make it fun...The thumbs up at lights,the conversations at gas stations or restaurants, the local cruises where people randomly pop in and "browse," the "war stories" of the stop lights... Having a car simply to have it...rather boring and when it is all said and done...who cares..Given an immaculate original 1969 Z that sits in the garage for fear of driving it....or a new 1LE...give me the new 1LE.

My prediction in 10-15 years...a lot of high end restorations will be coming on the market...and prices won't be as high as they are now...

BTW..I'd rather have Morrison's Shelby.

Milners 32 duece coupe is usually at the top of the list for iconic movie cars...the way a car brings big money is the first time it's for sale or if it's just found....once the bullit car sells it will be downhill from there on its value.....case in point the elvis car that just sold for 165k needing a total resto...the owner stated that it was unique and worth more because it wasn't well known like the others and hidden for the past 20 years . First time I've ever heard that being well known was a negative Well now that it sold, its "known" again,so value drops for the new owner
