I was there today. I've got a buddy in town staying with me who's a registered bidder. The only thing as nuts as that bus getting 4.1 mil was the chevelle drag racer that grabbed 1.15. I was standing in the bidder bar when that was on the block and it stalled at $500,00 for awhile... then all of a sudden, boom it started jumping. Someone got excited, I guess.

I took a bunch of pictures. I planned to start a thread later when I was sober. Billy Gibbons was there and I was hoping to get a picture with him for NZoner, but I failed.

Alice Cooper was there as well. I didn't see how much his ride went for, anyone know?

Well, that appears to be all I took. I should've grabbed the pics of my buddy's camera before he left town. Hopefully he'll e-mail me his soon.

He must've just taken 'em off for a second. I didn't realize I'd got him without sunglasses on til I posted that.

Man, those Pontiac designers sure were good at ripping off Corvette in the in 1954 and 1964 with those two "prototypes"
