I bet 50,000 bucks for it. Though its an old "car" like what you have said, a vintage car like that would be priced high on car auctions. I received 700$ for my ford 1999 ranger..not from cash for clunkers but from a car donation charity group called c4c, see [URL="http://www.cars4causes.com"]Car Donation + Donate Car = Cars4Causes[/URL]

Although this is an automotive forum, it is a fact that a large number of antique cars are sadly missing, since some were destroyed with a politically charged objective. That phenomenon is worthy of discussion, and it should not be surprising to anyone that some users of the forum have opinions that extrapolate from that, leading in the direction of non-automotive damage that is attributable to political motives, and comparisons are acceptable ways to make a point. I.e, Woods Electrics were destroyed for reasons that are similar to the reasons that mortgage liquidity was destroyed, which may or may not be a valid comparison, but it is still a comparison that relates to the OP. If other users react to that tangent, they have no-one to blame but themselves for off-topic wandering..

In the 40's, I had toy wind-up cars, and if I took them apart (which I could not resist doing easily by prying up a couple of assembly tabs), I found that the inside surfaces of the metal revealed that they'd been made in occupied Germany from Heileman's Old Style cans. G. Heileman Brewing Company, LaCrosse, Wisconsin. If I were a beer-can collector, I might lament the loss of those collectible beer cans, and attribute their demise to the political motives of capitalizing post-war western Europe to compete with the Soviet model. And feel free to raise the point in the Hobbies and Collecting Forum.
