I'll pay $2M for it.

Since it doesn't exist.

That car was used to wrap leftovers in 1956. Try to keep up.

I'm not familiar with the story of this car. I did see a documentary (Discovery or History channel?) about it. I think they said it was parted out or something, and every car that wound up with pieces of it wound up wrecked, some killing their drivers. Is that the gist of the legend, or is my memory failing (again)?

Maybe they wouldn't notice if someone presented them with a nice Beck.

I heard tow truck/flatbed was stolen on the way to the insurance company or something along those lines.

I figure Jimmy Hoffa grabbed it and is driving it right now.

Lots of rumors about it being a bad luck car, etc. But, a real 550 is worth close to a mil anyway...
