I saw the auction for this car online. Now I have not seen it in person nor do I know the previous owner that Gooding was praising so much. The car looked fantastic.
Watching the bidding start, I told my partner that "we are going to get one of these, just an early Giulietta Spider Veloce and not in red. This should go for anywhere between $35 - 45k max". How wrong I was. Crazy money for a nice one, though in my opinion, not a very special car. The beautiful blue 57 Giulietta Spider Veloce at FJ could have been yours for $58k and it looks in similarly spectacular condition.
Judging from what I saw at Gooding and Barrett Jackson, the market is clearly back on a healthier path. Even American muscle sales results are quite impressive.
