Coolest Javelin on eBay

Nah, this is the coolest car on eBay right now. It’s a recreation of Mark Donohue’s 1971 American Motors Javelin raced in the Trans Am Challenge.

It’s not the original car but in most ways, it’s better. According to the ad, it was designed to be driven on the street or track. You can take it to Stewart’s to get eggnog. That’s right, you can get eggnog at a Stewart’s in the summer, or even a Mountain Brew.

There’s about two days left on the auction and at $51,100, the reserve hasn’t been met. So it's only really expensive if you're not wealthy.

Who the heck is Mark Donohue?

What the heck is a Javelin?

Trans Am what?
