Never heard of that movie. Just saw the 2 minute clip on here. Just lost 2 minutes of my life watching a horrible movie.

I'd rather have the harvester - can you imagine that rolling on the stage at Mecum?

I think the original Massey Ferguson 760 combine would be the best investment to search for and if found restore it!

Just wash and wax that beauty and she'll be good as new.

Somehow I don't think that thing's gonna fetch much money. Dough nails it directly below.

Lightning McQueen was chased by Frank the combine harvester. Coincidence? I think not.

The story is the point here... it's everything! The car is just another piece of junk.

The people who promote and perpetuate this "false rarity, one of a kind, special vehicle" crap are just money grubbing bottom feeders.

Some cars are indeed special, rare, cutting edge, etc. But the focus on distilling everything automotive down to dollars misses the point completely. Just enjoy the story and scrap or part out the junk cars.  You haven't MISSED OUT on anything.

Hagerty's writer's and contributor's research and presentation of these cars is what gives you access to some very cool stories.

I am sure someone will pay lots for this gem. I'm also confident someone would pay large for a bar stool that James Dean once farted upon.
