    At Mecum Auction in Dallas and crossing the block on Friday, September 6th. I know a few of these have been discussed here on this board before. What I'm really curious about is what anyone knows about the Bamboo Cream car? A few people here may know that I have two '68 Firebirds that are twins. The last car wouldn't be an exact twin, but would be close to the GS 455 convertible project I have.

    The GSX is my old car. More salt in the wound!

    Troy,
    I think I may have driven your car, 455 4-speed?

    OK,
    Did Mark Reeves do the car and deliver it to the Nationals?

    RE: the GSX. I know for a fact that the mileage is original. I located that car in Marne, Michigan in the early 80s. It took 20 years to pry it away from the owners. Fortunately, Troy and Mark did it justice! One of the finest examples to come from Then and Now.

    Yeah,
    Mark Reeves made me hop in the car and drive it out of the trailer, how funny. I kind of felt the way the dealership guys must have felt when they were unloading the cars when they were new.

    It sure was an absolutely beautiful car. (Sorry, not trying to rub the salt in the wound a second time.)

    My advice, NEVER, EVER, NEVER sell in a depressed time of your life! Things change over time and selling this car was my biggest mistake I've made in our hobby!

    I hear you Troy. I’m another example of someone who once owned an X and let it get away.

    Brian,
    I believe that was my old one that I got out of California.

    You are correct Duane. And to this day I appreciate how much you guided me on that restoration. It was tough to let her go but the kids were growing up and they needed more attention than the car.

    This is the exact reason why I keep my low dollar, GS tribute car… It’s not worth much but I get incredible satisfaction out of driving it

    That black rug looks so out of place in the prototype.

    Okay, so the Bamboo Cream car is an unknown.

    I’m curious if the owner of the other 3 owns that one also...it isn’t on his website.

    I think that white one was a NY Craigslist car back in 2011 ish.

    If I remember correctly, it was around $25K.

    I looked in the Stage 1 registry and did not see this car listed there.
