    I am sure many of you followed the building of the MTY MAV by Sugarkukie. I was fortunate to be able to buy the car several years ago, but had to sell it when I was diagnosed with cancer. I sold the car at the Portland, Oregon Mecum Collector Car Auction for $26,500 and thought that was a pretty good price............... well take a look at what happened to MITY MAV. Somehow she ended up back East and was sold by Flemings Ultimate Garage (see link below). I called them and was told the car sold for just under $40,000 ........... wow ........ hard to believe !!

    that color jumped out and bit someone I think in a different color the car may not do as well
    very beautiful car I remember seeing it when it was just finished I think that car will continue to grow in value as long as its taken care of and kept in pristine condition like it looks in the photos

    I remember her saying that color was a custom mix to match her favorite nail polish. It was an expensive restoration.

    Even though it was a very high end resto I actually think the paint color hurts the value. It is a color that many gearheads wouldn't want.

    As was said above it was painted to match a nail polish color.

    True, but someone who'd buy a car to match nail polish, no doubt has more $$$$ than 99.999% of the average gearheads.

    I remember that car from years ago when Terri was first having the Art Morrison 4 link installed - I copied the set up on my own car and figured out a way that she could have the top links above the rear floor and still be able to use her back seat - it turned out that it worked out for her so I was able to do it to mine also - I actually like the color, kind of stabs your eyes out :rofl2:

    That is a wonderful car....an I am sure it cost more than 40K just in parts. Someone liked the color and got a good deal.
