The Chevy Feretta is one of the concepts which got the boot from GM's Heritage Museum this year and, after going to auction at Barrett Jackson earlier this year, it's now for sale on Craigslist. Only *cough* $37,500.
Proving once again that if you've got something you think is exciting and you want everyone else trawling Craigslist to get excited about it, you must type everything in ALL CAPS. What we have here is the Chevy Feretta, an experimental prototype version of the sporty-looking-at-the-time Baretta which actually delivers performance on what the looks promise. Instead of a wheezy 3100 V6 under the hood, this one's got an experimental quad cam, 32-valve V8 and a five speed manual. We're pretty sure asking $37k is well into crackpipe territory for most everyone, but for the weirdo collector, it's a rare and essentially forgotten piece of GM history.
