I know Cuda Jeff sells one, altough its way WAY out of my spending limits, if I had the money I would pay the amount requiered. This is pure ART and I have never seen such a beautiful car in my life. Sex on wheels

Have been reading this thread and there are happy endings. Some folks obtained their holy grails. Any more interesting stories of obtaining your holy grails? I believe that's what collectors live for - the chase. We love to collect because of the chase, the possesion, the joy of ownership, the displaying of our collection and finally, but not always, the sharing with others. Any interesting "chase" stories.

Also early on there was a discussion of what contitutes a "holy grail". Since you're the collector and it's your collection, I would say the "holy grail" is anything you feel would complete you collection according to your requirements, whether that be a current issue, a recent limited edition, an older one or a "vintage" one (from the 1960s on for 1/43; from the lte 1970s for 1/18; from the 1950s for 1/64).
