Parts cars are the second class citizens of the automotive world. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe GTI is a different kind of parts car though, and from the looks of it, its parts are first class all the way.
There's a question whether the Chevy Corvair has its fans because of its spunky, quirky nature, or because of its martyrdom in the war against Ralph Nader, arch nemesis and enemy of all things fun. While that question remains unanswered, the question yesterday of whether a semi-rough '61 Greenbrier is worth almost nine large was decided, although by the closest of margins. After the dust had settled, it was discovered that the nifty nine-seater managed to flip the fan belts of 53% of you, in a skin of its teeth Nice Price win. The remaining 47% found the price too high and the thought of the skin of your teeth being the only thing between you and a head-on collision a daunting prospect.
