Thank you Chris!

Seven million is a lot of money. Looks like it is a failed attempt to top the record from the last year.

Three years ago there was this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huYjQBC3mKQ Bohman & Schwartz SJ Roadster sold at the same place for $ 3.3 Million. So, a plus of 4 Million for the Clark Gable ownwership is not so bad in my opinion.
A Stars fame and popularity is a fast vanishing good. Clark Gable was a star of the pre-war cinema. A few years ahead and his popularity is "Gone with the Wind" <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

On the first look J-355 looks like a really bargain offer.
