Dinoco Car up for auction today!

Don’t you shake your fist at me: this is how most people will interpret the news.

…[NASCAR legend Richard] Petty’s iconic blue ‘Birds that are among the most famous American race cars of all time, and one will be crossing the block at the Mecum Auctions event in Harrisburg, Penn., on Saturday, Aug. 3.

It’s the crown jewel of a more than 40-strong car and motorcycle collection being offered by prominent collector Todd Werner, which includes the Road Runner Petty won the Daytona 500 in during his 1971 championship run and several classic drag cars worth high six to seven figures each.

Via Ed Driscoll. Even if I had the money, I wouldn’t buy it for the price it’s likely to go for, but that’s because I’m the wrong sort of person to buy it and I wouldn’t properly appreciate owning such a fine automobile. In fact, owning it might even take innocent pleasure away from somebody who would appreciate it properly. But I wouldn’t mind having a good look at it. Maybe get a picture.

Hey, I liked CARS, OK? God knows my children made me watch it enough times.
