I'd rather have his astronaut watches. The Accutron Astronaut and the Omega Speedmaster please.

A 1967 Chevrolet Corvette once owned by Neil Armstrong

To verify it really was his, you have to sniff the drivers seat.

I prefer John Voight for my pre-owned car needs, personally.

CSB: Neil Armstrong went on safari in the mid 70s and bagged a big bad angry beastie that was charging at him (don't remember what specific beastie, just that is was big and bad) All Armstrong had to say about it was "That was the second most exciting thing I have experienced." I'm pretty sure the most exciting thing was not solo landing a Piper Cub for the first time.

I'd rather have the Pickett N600T slide rule they used during the Apollo 11 flight.

"C-O-R-V-E-T-T-E" spells "I've walked on the moon" - laws yes..."

Correction: A VIDEO of Neil Armstrong's Corvette is on eBay. Supposedly, the actual car is twice as fast as its Russian counterpart.

Fully restored, that Vette is probably worth accordiing to my sources, about 100K at best. So someone thinks someone is a REAL sucker.

No, Louis Armstrong was a famous musician who travelled to Missouri, became a saint and built a huge arch...

To be fair, the 69 Corvette with a 427 engine is one of my dream cars. But 250k for a car that still needs a lot of work, I'll just buy a "regular" one instead. I might not get the "OMG this is Neil Armstrong's car!" feeling, but I'm sure I'll manage.
 
2012-05-04 10:25:16 AM  
I believe the funniest part of story is all the Mercury astronauts got a corvette except John Glenn. He got a station wagon.
 
2012-05-04 10:25:28 AM  
At $250K, it had better have gone to the moon too.

no - the most exciting was graduating from Purdue

'67 Vette? Ok, I guess, too bad it isn't an '84 Vette, then we would be talking status.
 
2012-05-04 10:38:22 AM  
FTA: "According to the seller, the yet-to-be-first man on the Moon took delivery of the 'Vette in December of 1966 as part of a special program run by Melbourne Chevrolet dealer, Jim Rathman. The enterprising salesman used to offer astronauts a special one year lease deal on 'Vettes so they would always be seen behind the wheel of the latest model. "

As a token of gratitude, one of the Lunar Rovers currently sitting on the Moon has a "RATHMAN CHEVROLET" bumper sticker placed on the fender.

Rathman was also an Indy 500 racer in the 50's, and passed away last November at age of 83.

Neil Armstrong is the least interesting of men to land on the moon. Having disappeared from public life since his moon walk, he is the anti-Lindbergh, and one of the reasons manned space exploration is dead.

I would agree from a public relations standpoint he was a dud - least interesting? maybe if you are that Dosequis guy but name a farker who has a more interesting life?

I once barhopped across New England in one day (Boston, MA to Saratoga, NY), stopping at every open bar we found for a drink through four states in a crappy early Seventies Chevy Nova blaring AC/DC's "Back In Black" album from speakers mounted in a plastic milk crate buckled into the back seat, with a friend and a girl nicknamed "Mudflap".

That was pretty interesting.

I love the Speedmaster too, but that hesalite crystal and winding it up stuff for $3g doesn't do it for me. Still, perhaps one day.

The automatic is practically as cool, but you don't get the "my watch is EVA certified!" nerdgasm.
