  1. I bid $43 million, but I had to go to the toilet.
    When I came back it was sold.

    Shouldn't have had that damn Pepsi before the auction.

  2. It amazes me that people would spend that much on an old car. I would personally buy a modern Ferrari, bugatti chiron and a few others and a nice home overlooking the ocean with plenty of money in the bank than have that old car. But to each their own.

  3. Man, I'm so sad I missed this one. I was gonna buy it, but my Dodge broke down on my way to the auction and didn't make it… 😑
