Neil Armstrong's former 1967 Corvette hits eBay

There's so much Americana in this auction it's amazing. Back in the 60s America was enamored with spaceflight and astronauts were the massive national heroes that they should be. Astronauts got all the chicks and had the sweetest cars, just like this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette that was once owned by Neil Armstrong.

Armstrong was the first man to ever walk on the moon. Armstrong's Corvette is a manual transmission, 427 engine Corvette with power windows, and air conditioning. In the 60s, Armstrong sold the car to a NASA employee that and drove it until 1981 before selling it. The car is now on eBay for anyone to purchase, and it looks like it's in need of restoration. As of now the car is bid up to $120,427 with several days to go in the reserve still hasn't been met.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
