After months of tracking a few dozen different auctions and Buy it Now listings, I finally pulled the trigger on the Speed Machines Corvette C6R (Jake edition).

I’ve been tracking the average auction price on the Jake C6R since October and it finally wore me down to the point that I was willing to nab one if I could get it for less than the average. For those who are wondering, the average shipped price is a touch over $21.50.

I missed out on some sub-$20 cars in the last couple months because I simply forgot about auctions ending (oops), but I thought I’d get this one for a bit less since the last few cars had been sub-average, this one was loose, and the bid had hovered at $11.99 for a few days.

Ended up getting it for $15.50 plus $5.00 shipping (which was a bit of a joke). It’s the most I’ve paid for a single car, which isn’t a great feeling, but it’s such a spectacular cast+livery combo that I’m still pretty happy with it (and I suspect the value will keep going up).

These have been reviewed and photographed several times here so I’ll just leave it at that and add my own photos to the mix.
