    Limited Edition Corvette Z06 raises $200,000 to benefit Haiti

    "There were plenty of charity cars up for auction at Barrett-Jackson the last few days, but perhaps the one that benefited the most worthy cause was donated by GM. They brought out a 427 Limited Edition Corvette Z06 worth more than $80,000 to Scottsdale and promised to donate the entire proceeds of the sale to the American Red Cross to help those who were affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

    Fortunately, the bidders in attendance hadn't exhausted all of their funds by the time the car crossed the block, and a generous buyer put down a $200,000 offer for the car. You can visit www.redcross.org or text HAITI to 90999 to donate yourself, and although you won't go home with a new Corvette, you'll be helping out a very worthy cause."

    Good deal, my best friend is over there now helping out, he texted me and said we have no idea how bad it is, the media has not captured the true horror and sadness.

    Well I think the main problem there is the bottlenecked support. They simply don't have the infrastructure necessary to cope with the calamity, and yes, we have no idea!

    My prayers go out to them Click here to enlarge

    Not impressive. A 7 year old raised $160,000.00 with just a bicycle.
