Well, well, well — what do we have here? Why it's one of our Fantasy Garage cars, the Facel Vega HK500! And it can be yours for the Buy It Now price of just $75,000. Or, you can see where the auction takes you. As of right now, just two bids. The car was purchased in Germany, driven around Europe and has been living in the rust-free car utopia that is the SF Bay Area for the past 49 years. You gotta love the people that bought these things — check this out:

There is a 2 -3 inch hairline crack in the windshield-a new windshield is available for an extra $1,000.00 plus shipping. I have two sources for them. Quite frankly I never wanted to replace the windshield and loose the history on the car because there is an original, in period sticker on the windshield from Golden Gate Fields -the local San Francisco Bay Area horse race track. (The original owner was an Olympic dressage champion-with a swimming pool for her horses in Atherton-can you imagine?..)

As Han Solo might say, I can imagine a lot. Like owning this baby. Man, a black Cali plate, too? As always, sigh... Hey Junkman, you adopting "big-boned" hairy Jewish auto journo types? [eBay]
