    If I had lottery type coin......I'd be all over it, as well.


    A mint restored 56' Chevy is probably worth around 25 to 30K, just as an estimated guess. So with Ed's name attached, it'll probably go for somewhere around 40-50K.


    It'll be interesting to see where it goes.


    Add 5 grand for the license plate...too !

    WOW.....didn't see that. I think we're probably pushing 80K now.


    Man.....California cars always look so clean.......you rarely see cherries like that in Ohio.

    Is it auctioned off for charity? I mean, 40k, for EVH that's like when you drop a penny on the ground... it's not worth the trouble of going through the auction process.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Yup......The one I have framed and on my wall is a different pose, and in color, but definitely the same photo session.

    Thanks

    So, the year his son was born, he bought some cars built the year he was born (a '56 was likely built in '55). Somewhat interesting.

    Perhaps he thought he'd have them for WVH but Wolf didn't want 'em.

    Or when Wolf quit the band Ed said "Then I'm gonna auction off those cars!"

    j/k

    Ya know......it's damn near scarlett with grey interior. I'd bet a string of buckeyes would look sharp hanging from the rear-view.
