Two R2's sold today at Mecum's Monterey auction. A white R2, 4 speed hammered at $90,000.00 and a Turquoises R2 4 speed hammered at $115,000. Both were nice cars but hardly perfect. Strong money in my opinion.

I'm not complaining but if anybody should have been paid those numbers would have been Jim McCuen as his was original finishes, even a set of rims with original tyres. Oh, at least as nice as well.

Maybe Mecum has taken a page from the casinos and started giving free liquor to bidders.

The turquoise one is stunning and I think the real reason it pulled such high numbers is it is equipped with the infamous BP battery hold down.
