    No reserve 69 L-88 Stingray on BAT...

    Maybe Dan and I should empty our garages so that we might be able to afford it together and share? LOL

    Next to the ‘69 ZL-1 (only two were built by the factory), this one is a holy grail car for Stingray fans.

    Good luck trying to find gas for it.

    After Chevron did away with their white pump premium gas I had to put new pistons in mine to lower the CR down to 11 to 1 and even then it was tricky.

    After they did away with the white pump gas I had the compression lowered to 10.5 to 1 and the gas kept getting worse so I run 110 leaded racing gas in it now.

    You can do that Ron, but you can never travel more than 1/2 a tank away from home.

    My '70 1/2 Z-28 had factory 11:1's. I had to retard the timing and run an Edelbrock water injection system to keep it happy when I was driving it daily.

    This auction should be fun to watch...it's NO RESERVE (and 14 day duration, which is twice the normal for a BAT auction). And the seller either has some serious huevos or figured that the word would get out to all the serious buyers. In fact, I'm pretty certain an owner of any car of this magnitude already got the word out months ago.

    I think you get the 14 day auction if you sign up for the BAT premium listing.

    That is correct S_Reynolds.

    It is the same matrix as the Bring A Pen Auction Site I belong to.

    Already at $250K on the first day. Wouldn't be surprised to see $700-800K at the finish line.

    Here's a great story on the 1 of 2 ZL-1's. It's located about 45 minute drive from my place. Roger's Corvettes (Maitland, FL - where I was raised) is like an East Coast Mike's Corvettes (Anaheim, CA)...all super low mileage originals and you don't dare dicker on the ask.

    Thanks for the warning. I believe I will totally stay away from that site.

    I'm taking a breather for awhile Dean - you go on without me. Takes some guts to hang it all out on that type of car on BAT - not sure it's the best venue for that type of car but maybe it will do OK.

    Not sure either at no reserve, but BAT has come along way as a viable auction site in the last few years. It sure is a lot less expensive from both the seller and buyer's side.
