This Austin Healy replica was a kit car, modeled on a VW Chassis with a Chevy 350 engine (very big, too powerful for the frame of the Healy). Because it was such a specialty vehicle, he was heartbroken when he thought about selling it. So he decided he could get a better tax break, wagering the market value of the vehicle if he had gotten it to its specialty market in Las Vegas or Phoenix. The donor is a friend of Senator Jake Garn and wished to remain anonymous. The car was sold at a Las Vegas specialty auction for approximately $9,000.
