I don't suppose you grasped the significance of Peter Griffin's bid of $100,000,000.00 for a vase at a charity auction?

To whomever owns this car, you sir, are awesome.
250,000 for charity is nothing short of astounding.


Cheers to whomever you are!

Here's the 350k custom UFC Camaro. All 350k went to benefit the intrepid fallen heroes fund.

I was at the auction and have video of the Vert Camaro being auctioned. I will post later.

They paid 45k for it too, but will get to write off the remainder for charity. Good to see it go for so much! I'm sure all the charities involved love these car auctions because collectors get what they want and they get a lot of tax deductible money from it too!

Win/Win!

Why is it such a hard concept to understand for some people that it was $205K paid for CHARITY? Yes, the high bidder bought the 2nd production ragtop, but anything above and beyond the value of the car itself was a charitable contribution. The long and the short of it is that it was a very generous act by someone who is fortunate enough to do that. Look at it for what it is!

Great point! I know it is alot to pay for a Camaro...but the thought is that the money is for charity! To the person who had the winning bid..KUDOS! Hopefully they will be able to enjoy the car for a little while, before they donate it themselves for another charity! Pay it forward!
I was on an auction committee where this guy bid on a Mustang Convertible, drove it one day after he won the high bid and then turned around and donated the car for another auction! Its all about the charity! Remember that everyone!

a tax write off....... ie loophole for the fortunate.... nothing against that. I myself have been part of charity auctions. what got me was it was to benefit the YMCA which is not a worthwhile cause if you ask me. the fallen heros or something to benefit cancer or aids would be a better choice if your looking to donate some huge cash. I have worked for the auction of camp boggy creek several times myself, to me that is a worthwhile cause being it allows terminally ill children to go to a camp totally free of charge to the parents and enjoy a week with other children facing the same dire outlook in life. the YMCA is nothing more than a business of which hides behind the guise of being "religious" yet they spend no real dollars to enhance the facility unless it is absolutely needed. what a farce lol

Our Dealer, Mr. Greg Heinrich of Fairway Chevrolet, Henderson Chevrolet, and Pahrump Valley Automall along with Chevrolet auctioned this car off.....

Unless you specifically know all the details about the YMCA of Southern Nevada, it may be prudent to withhold judgement. I happen to know that they do much good in the greater Las Vegas area - and I know that Mr. Heinrich is one of the finest Gentlemen that I will ever meet.

Many thanks to his generosity and caring.

For those of you in Southern Nevada - please consider these dealerships when purchasing a new or used car or truck.
