That’s a lot of dough…

Most of the attention for Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale event was on blue-chip cars, so many missed how a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am sold for $220,000 when it crossed the engine block. That might sound like a lot of money to shell out for a second-gen F-Body, even if it is a 1979 preserved beautifully. But as the auctions go, prices are dictated by the bidders present and what they can stomach, so here we are.

See how much John Mayer’s Ford GT Heritage Edition sold for here.

Obviously helping with value here is the fact this Trans Am has a mere 37 miles on the odometer. No,t hat’s not a typo – it’s 37 miles, not 370 or 37,000. While the original owner bought it in Michigan and kept it there for pretty much its entire life, this classic American muscle car has been spared rolling on the salty winter roads or pothole-pocked summer roads of that state.
