So, is anyone going to watch the 2,000,000 auction tomorrow? Or, better yet, is anyone going to be bidding?

I think they are estimating $3 million as it is a charity auction.

I believe that this Defender could likely qualify for import into the US under what's commonly known as the "959 Rule", also known as the Show & Display Exemption.

Did they post the country of the winning bidder? $600K is still a lot of coin for a Defender.

yeah but number 2000000... there is only one of those, and only will be one of those.

Makes you wonder what happened to number 1000000

It was a charity auction. The number is meaningless. Just a tax write off for someone.

It's going to Australia. Shayne bought it. We'll see it on the forum in a few weeks for $1.2m USD.
