Wonder if this car would flex like a rubber band on the strip or if it is 1/10 slower?
I get it someone with money will buy this for the bragging rights. it will never hit the track and will have 100 miles on it in 50 years... but one thing you have to remember is that the original COPOs were not meant to be a collector item they were meant to shift the tide in the pony wars... i guess the times have changed
