When an automaker debuts a new car, they give out a little commemorative kit to journalists with trinkets and booklets inside. Last night we got a little box that has a paperweight with the new Stingray emblem from the 2014 Corvette on it. And it's all free!

What a country!

I was planning on not opening mine and selling it online in 30 years or so for $37. But one enterprising attendee is already selling his or her unopened kit on eBay. Bids started at $25 (reasonable) and are now exceeding $150+ $305.


It takes some chutzpah to sell something like that right after the event. Good for them?
