Haaaa Luke.... I saw the swiss cheese Catalina/Bonneville last year at a car show. I heard that the value or should I say price was somewhere north of 300,000.00. Which I cant blame him. Very nice ole fellow whom was FILTHY EFF'N RICH but nice as could be. OF course my two buddies/blokes both have 300,000.00 cars too and he was showing us the car. One of our new members was at the same show with his 429 car.

What's that little wing on one side of the trunk, why 1of1 and is there some aviation link just a guess. When I was 17 I seen a SD455 Trans Am ugly car but it sure could move out. This same person had a 396 ss Camaro the Monaro I got and a few other cool cars

Why - if it was restored in the 1990's - does it look like it was kept in a barn since 1982?
Why is there a LAKE in the driver's footwell if it was restored?
Why does it have an Super Duty drivetrain and suspension...but it's not one of the 6 Super Duty cars, and there is no documentation to back up the "dealer car" guesswork?
Why does someone "restore" a car this rare, then keep it outside to rot, and then not even bother to pick up the garden hose to make it look halfway decent for sales pictures?
Why do they want people to BID on Craigslist, when they could bloody well put it on eBay?

My BS meter is at its peak today, and this ad just sent it to "TILT."

Still - as you say, a very neat machine - seller and ad aside.

Original to the Tempest/LeMans, apparently.

Good question on the wing!! The area where this car ran was an undisclosed location owned by the Air Force. It was used due to its HIGH SPEED capability filming and observing the aircraft or crafts while it or they ran the runway and taking off. It is owned by none other than NASA!

The engineers rode in the car BESIDE the aircraft during take off hence the need for helmets and the wing. THAT must have been FUN!! Imagine that big ole beast running 9-10 seconds in the quarter. Obvious the car got good top end as well.
