The camera car that is one of three '55 Chevy gassers built for the 1971 movie "Two Lane Blacktop", just sold at auction for $145,000. Less than many people thought it would sell for, butt since it's the camera car used in most interior shots, I'd guess it went a bit lower.
The other '55 used for drag racing scenes, and later repainted black for the movie American Graffiti, is still in Maryland, and if it ever sells I'd expect it will get the really big bucks!

I watched it, but didn't realize it was a reserve auction? BJ had a few cars with reserve yesterday, and only saw one that didn't meet the reserve. It was a '71 Corvette race car that ran the 24 hrs. of Lemans.

surprised George Lucas didn't collect these cars for his own.

The Jesse James built clone is on ebay right now in a no reserve auction and is at $23,000. If I remember correctly it was sold on ebay less than a year ago.
