I spend a lot of time trolling eBay for Porsche related items. Actually, I probably spend more time than is healthy, but there are probably worse addictions. Most of the time I'm looking for things to add to my growing collection of Porsche memorabilia. The rest of the time I'm looking for things to feature here on FlatSixes.com.
Today's find caught my eye for two of reasons - the first was the price - $75,000 is a lot of money for a piece of memorabilia. As it turns out, the pin isn't really for sale (which seemed pretty strange for an eBay item and the second reason I paid attention). According to the listing the seller likes the pin so much he simply wants to share it with others. To make sure he wouldn't have to part with this treasure he set an unrealistic Buy It Now target (although I'm thinking he would let it go if someone met his price).
If you're not familiar with Bruce Jennings, he won more races in a Porsche than any other driver of his time. Today, cars with a racing provenance that include victories by Jennings command a premium over similar period cars. I'm not so sure about the pin though. If you want to check out the full listing, you can do so here on eBay.
Don't forget about the poll on Porsche Vanity plates. If you haven't yet taken a minute to vote, you can do so right now ---------------------------------->
