Does the writers on Carbuzz have ADD or something, ecause I swear they stop right in the middle of a series and start with a new one, why is Italian Exotics already over?

I'm confused. The highest price paid was $35 million just last week. I saw that on Hemmings News. And it wasn't a black or red one. So now there's one even higher than that?

The Holman and Moody shop here in Charlotte had two of the 330 cars. There were 7 replicas built using a true 330 car for reference. All 7 cars used the 1959-1961(?) 330 Gt coupe chassis and running gear. There is still one in the shop :)
