It's only money...current bid is $802,000.

I don't think even Stinger guys can afford it.

Although that lime is a great color the Andromeda Red with black interior was better.

I will agree with the Black interior.
Bright Bleu is not up my alley.
But I can't quiet embrace the Red exterior.
Miuras came in many magnificent flamboyant colors, why settle for passe red?
Red is so Traditional Ferrari.
The hatred of Ferrari was so strong, I am surprised that Ferruccio ever allowed any car to leave his factory painted in Red.

It's a 2002 Chevy IRL SB2.2 3.5L Indy engine. I've got a couple blocks. Still chasing small parts. Traded a couple blocks to Penske for everything but the bearings. Going to build one for a track car. That 17,000 rpm redline...
