"After the film, the bike was sold to a farmer, who used it to herd cows, but it was then stored in a barn for decades.

Mr Shepherd bought it from a former farm worker, who inherited it after the farmer's death."

BMW/TriumphAnother reference to post-film the farmer/owner.

"Three bikes were used in total, all Triumph TR6 Trophys dressed up to look like German machines. And for years, nobody knew the whereabouts of the one used by McQueen in the film."

I'm with George. At the end of the day, you still have a beat-up Mustang, used in a make-believe story by people paid too much to pretend to be other people and do things that never really happened.

But ... what makes the car so valuable isn't that it's a Mustang. Or that it was driven in a movie by a superstar. No, none of that. What makes it so valuable is that it was driven by ...


wait for it ...






a Marine.



Even if he was a brig rat.

John, 10% of that would be ok but you have to come and get. Or have Don pick it up on the way. 50% down to hold until the end of April or forfeit.

Tim and I can pick it up on the way to the Homecoming!
That is after a night in Memphis and another night in Nashville.
Jerry's farm may also be in the mix.

That very calm and sane Aussie should be riding shotgun with me.

He even has history up here in Alaska. He was picked up for DUI in Anchorage back in 1972.
That should add some value, as well, right?
