That's THEEE nines! (They actually said that in the commercial).


That's almost as good as ELEVEN nines!  Or nine elevens!  Maybe that's an idea for the next coin they do!

For some reason, this reminds me of that lady who tried to repair the Spanish fresco. As if she'd then tried to sell it for 30 mil.

This is racist propaganda. It's like driving the Klanmobile.

wait a sec... are you saying Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11?


The director of the CIA thought so.

"The price that I am asking cannot be compared to other cars that have sold for millions of dollars"

You're right.  It can't.

This is a car worth millions: here

He didn't even bother to fix the rear axle problem putting the back wheels all the way back in the wheel well, so it doesn't even run well.

It might, I say MIGHT be worth $30 million if the Nova was used by OBL as a base for planning the 9/11 attacks and the plans were actually inscribed on the hood and the 4 main hijackers then drove the Nova from Afghanistan to Florida for flight training, and then drove the Nova to drop off some of the hijackers to Newark and Boston to catch their flights and then the Nova became self-aware and realized what was going on and drove itself to NYC to thwart the attacks but was late so assisted in the recovery and stayed to help haul off debris and then drove around collecting money for memorials and then the Nova helped bring in materials for those memorials in PA, Pentagon, and NYC and then the Nova drove Seal Team 6 to Pakistan as they put a cap in OBL and then drove materials to NYC for the Freedom tower while also driving metal from the WTC towers to the shipyard for the missile cruiser New York and then drove gold from the vaults at the WTC to the Franklin mint to make commemorative coins...yes then the car would be historically important and maybe worth $30 million

THX 1138: In the 38 years that car's been around, how many thousands of gallons of Saudi oil do you suppose it's burned?


Probably not as much as you think.  I can't say about back in the 70's, but most gasoline in the U.S. comes from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Venezuala.

Every turd I drop in the toilet bowl is "unique" and "one of a kind". That doesn't make them worth $30 mil, unless perhaps I were Jackson Pollock and I had just eaten at Taco Bell.

Whatthefark: I'd rather have the '66 Nova in the sidebar.


Yeah, '66 and '67 were the best. But I've always been nostalgic for a '69-'70. They're so approachable and blue-collar. My favorite combination is a '70 in dark green with a black vinyl top, black interior, 15x8 rallies in the back and 14x8s up front. Throw in a moderate 350 - 4spd combination, or (as long as I'm day dreaming) a moderate 383 - 5spd combo with 4-wheel disc brakes and a 4:11 posi out back, and I'd be happy to spend my days rubbing on the Turtle Wax, blasting some Bruce Springstieen on the Rockford Fosgate, and smoking the radial T/As. Good times. If you like, there's a fridge there inside the garage. Grab what you like. Bottle opener's on top.

so... shiat car... with a generic built motor... some airbrushing that looks like shiat ... capitalizing on a tragedy...

MAYBE if it had redesigned suspension and an engine from a Bugatti Veyron... 10 gigawatt sound system... ran 4000 miles on a single tank and had a lifetime hooker in the passanger seat, you know for company are carpool lane .... I might give em 20 grand.

He should bring it down to Rick, Correy and ChumLee to get a real value placed on it.

Then Rick can call in an expert who will verify the signatures and tell us a lot of shiat about 9/11 that doesn't related to the actual car, at all.

Then ChumLee can ask if he can take it for a ride.

At the end of the day, Rick will offer him about $2500 because, hey, it's probably worth $30 million but he's got overhead and inventory and god only knows how long it will sit on the floor until someone with $60 million comes in to buy it.

I mean, hey, he's got to make some money

My father-in-law has a '67 Nova.  The only time he let me drive it was the day I married his daughter.  I stalled it out a half-block from the church.

I was waiting for the part where it said the money will go to victims from that tragic event. Didn't see it. Maybe if it was a car recovered from under the rubble of the World Trade Center, but even then, still kind of high.

Well.. it is signed by a couple of senator or something.   If one if them is Senator Obama and next to the signature it says
Some day, I will implement a health plan so people with jobs can pay for your healthcare so you do not have to sell your car to pay your medical bills..."
well, he might have something.

OPEC includes countries outside of the Middle East, but these days they supply 40% of our gas.  Here is the most recent info I could find.  Gas from:
U.S. 39%
Canada: 15%
Saudi Arabia: 8%
Mexico: 7.5%
Venezuala: 5.9%
Nigeria: 5.2%

I think you're looking at it too hard. It's more likely he's just been informed by Fox News MSNBC. A significant portion of their viewership comentators still thinks Saddam Bush was working together with OBL shadowy forces to make 9/11 happen by imploding the buildings.

If you're going Farktard, go Full Farktard with the industry leaders (just not in ratings).
