A 1967 Corvette with just 2,996 miles and a new car smell could fetch $800,000
next month at Mecum Auctions in Huston, Texas.
The coupe was purchased in 1966 by 30-year-old Don McNamara of Colorado
Springs, with $5,000 he won on a trip he made to Las Vegas to celebrate his
retirement from the U.S. Marines.
McNamara died in 2011 and left his estate to his neighbors, who discovered the
car parked in his garage under a shipping blanket along with both American and
Marine Corps flags.
