Evel Knievel Messerschmitt: What will it go for?

This is the car that was purchased on their TV show this year for $10K
Of course they are selling it.
How much do you think it will go for? Poll closes day before the actual auction.
You can change your vote on this one, but only while the poll is open.

"Hammer Price" is the price it is bid to. It does NOT include any Buyer's commission or fees.
This auction is not live web cast that I know of, nor will it be on TV and these guys don't tend to post their results right away, but they might announce something over the weekend as Press Release.

Looks like there is now a link to watch the auction live:
http://www.worldwide-auctioneers.com/live.cfm
starts at 11am CST, the car is Lot #43, assuming they run in Lot Order, it probably will not cross the block until around 1pm or so

Well, nobody got this one right, it went for $32,000 HAMMER Price to a buyer apparently from Europe (as pointed out by the auctioneer).

If you missed the Live Stream you can watch a terrible quality version on YouTube here:

That was as good as the video stream got, it looked a lot worse a few hours before that lot went across the line.

Well I guess my estimate was low. The buyer must have wanted the car because of the past ownership. Maybe he can recoup his investment by charging a buck a head to see it. ( like a circus side show) OR try to jump a fountain or canyon with it!!
