    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    Wonder what the chances are it will ever see 1000 miles on its odometer in its lifetime?

    One of my best friends in high school had his grandmother buy him a brand new Ford GT in 1989. To a kid driving a Gremlin at the time, I thought it was the fastest car on the planet...

    Back and forth between two bidders after $41K. That is what MAKES an auction.

    That is a very high price for a Mustang that had the looks of crunched up card board box compared to a 1993 Chevy Camaro. For the $58,000 they could have purchased a 2019 Corvette C7 for that kind of money. The funny thing about the performance times of the 1993 Mustang Cobra are no better than my stock 1986 Corvette roadster equipped with a four speed manual trans.

    I had a 1995 Mustang GT for several years that I had purchased from a used car lot back in 1999. At the time it seemed quite powerful, but compared to today's cars, 225 horsepower isn't very much.

    Hopefully whoever bought it will take it to some car shows so others car check it out but the new owner is probably some rich guy with a building full of old cars that just sit there all year with a cover on them....

    I would likely walk right by it at a show and not notice. Too many of them around to be interesting except to a Mustang fan.

    At this weekend's Mecum auction in Harrisburg, there was a 1996 Mustang SVT Cobra with approximately 200 miles on it that sold no reserve for $17,000.
