Enough said.

I had no idea, how have I not heard about this?! CJH, my uncle actually owned one of these. I'll never forget my first ride in his 67 AC 427. I was 10. Not old enough to truly appreciate it but it was my first ride in a truly fast car. He did the old "put a 20 on the dash and if you can grab it, it's yours" trick. He sold that car 4-5 years ago, I can't remember exactly what he got for it but it was WELL into the $200k range, mighta been pushing $300k. IMHO the best car ever built. That thing couldn't be beat for a loooong time
