Welcome to a belated Hooniverse Weekend, and the only reason this is so late is because of the very heavy workload I seem to be under lately. I had to report to the office, and didn’t have any time to do a proper weekend of posting until now, so it will be a weekend of Quick Hits that I find around the web, like this gem. This is a Stuts Blackhawk VI that was once owned by the wife of Arnold Palmer. Does that make it desirable, or quite the opposite?
This car is listed within the Sacramento area of Californiastan, and would be at home in the Garage of any Oligarch. According to the listing:
1975 Stutz Blackhawk, this car was manufactured in Italy for Arnold Palmer wife Dodie Palmer, this car is fully loaded with sunroof, power steering, power doors locks, power windows, 6 way power seats, auto. trans. crusie control, air condition, am/fm radio and 8 track, 455cu.in. engine, 425hp, 33,590 miles, no accidents, no body damage, leather and 18k gold plate interior.
This think is so tasteless that I almost want it, but the asking price makes me reconsider that want… It’s $35,000. You know for that coin, the seller could have at least restored the leather interior with conditioner, but I digress. See the listing here, and tell me if you would like to own Dodie Palmers’ Ride…
