I was watching the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction earlier tonight and AJ Foyt's Silver 1984(?) 512 BBi sold for $75k. Seemed like a bargain to me. The commentator mentioned that they are expensive to maintain but a joy to drive.

Why are they expensive to maintain? Anyway, just thought I would post that in case anyone was interested.

Only if you have not taken car of them. Annual costs will run a couple of thousand with a large hit ($5k+) for a cambelt change every 4-5 years. If you are so inclinded, a lot of the smaller jobs can be done by a mechanically skilled owner.

Shame that such a beautiful car with provenance, along with a recent 14K service, only sold for 75K. A travesty to Boxers and Ferraris, I think.

$82,000 with buyer commission.
Actually puts the car on the high side of the market with its known issues.

Wrong audience at BJ for a Ferrari.
