What makes this Chevette interesting is the mileage. It has just 1,711 miles on it. One thousand, seven hundred and eleven miles.
The story goes that a man in Florida bought this car for his wife who passed away 2 months after the purchase. After her death, it was brought into the dealership twice a year for oil changes, but not driven elsewhare.
Chevy sold a ton of Chevettes. While about as exciting as a bowl of oatmeal, the Chevette was a pretty reliable, economical little car. For many people the Chevette was their first car. As I write this, 14 people have bid it up to $4850.00, with just under 2 days to go in the auction.

A big thanks to Jon for spotting this car.
1969 Renault R10 - The R10 was the last rear-engined Renault. It was the last in a line that started with the 4CV.
Renault's reputation took a beating in the US with the Dauphine, a car that was marketed as an alternative to the VW Beetle. Despite being a better car on paper than the VW, the Dauphine was wholly unreliable and Renault's dealers were not equipped to handle the numerous problems.
Although it was a much better, much more developed car than the Dauphine (and, again, better than a Beetle in many, many ways), US car buyers didn't flock to the R10. The Dauphine fiasco was still too fresh.
Except for a recent re-spray, this R10 is original. It was recently featured in Sports & Exotic Car Magazine.
Renault's rear-engined cars are interesting cars that offer a unique driving experience. They are rarely seen these days. This R10 is a nice example of the best of the breed.

Volkswagen Powered 1967 Saab Sonett - I'm speechless. This is most of a Saab Sonett. The roof is gone as are the doors. But, most remarkably, it is now powered by a Volkswagen 1600cc Type III engine and transmission. It's still FWD, no less.
This is an impressive piece of engineering. This is a pointless piece of engineering. I don't know what else to say. I'm still speechless.
