If you happen to have a strong desire for a very rare, Italian-bodied 1959 Corvette and were wondering what you were going to do with that spare million dollars you have laying around the house, we have two words for you—Scaglietti Corvette. Yes, one of the only three Scaglietti Corvettes that were ever made is now advertised for sale in Hemmings for only $995,000.
As Christmas quickly approaches we’re sure most of you are busy attacking the malls and online stores like we are grabbing sweaters, gifts cards and such. What if shopping was more fun?
