    Original Cobras coming up for auction in 2017

    I suppose it's time to start a new thread documenting all the original AC/Shelby Cobras that are scheduled to cross the auction block in calendar year 2017.

    Something strikes me as odd about CSX2442. Might just be the picture angle, or perhaps even the wheels, but somehow the body doesn't look 100% correct..

    That was exactly my first thought. Can't quite figure it out, but something looks odd.

    Maybe the camera angle. Whoever took the picture may have been crouching down as you can see the exhaust pipes pretty well under the car.

    Now own just a lowly Viper
    As long as these people can make a buck, they will keep turning them.

    I can't wait for the last guy in line to take it in the shorts.

    It already happened to the first guy in the line.

    This will be the eighth time CSX2093 has crossed the block since 2007. It hammered for $1.35 million back then and hasn't got close to that number since. Instead, it has hammered for $875K, $850K and $900K and has DNSed three other times.

    Darn, and here I was going to buy it if it keeps dropping in price. Remember the Super Snake. It sold for $5.5 million the first time and just $5 million the second time.

    Here is the latest Hagerty's on the 289 ...

    https://www.hagerty.com/apps/valuati...89_r%27and%27p

    I am not sure what condition this particular one was in but the trend according according to this data is that prices have been flat since May 2015 for Concours and Excellent condition cars. Good and Fair condition cars was flat since May 2015 but dropped slightly in May 2016.

    Of course they would have to drop about 99% to be in my purchasing range
