The Amazing True Story of CSX2287

******ZERO SMB CONTENT!!*******


Being a rapidly aging GenXer, I remember watching Monkees reruns in the 1970's. So when I noticed a Monkees marathon on the tube, I settled in to watch a few commemorate the late Davy Jones (Davy had dreamy eyes, but I always liked Mickey's mischievous smile). The episode, "Monkees Race Again", pitted the Monkees against an evil German race car driver--who had a Shelby Cobra Daytona! A real, one of six, Shelby Daytona. As a hopeless car guy, all the blood left my brain at that moment. A quick search on the International Network yielded an amazing story involving Phil Spector, self immolation and Jay Leno.

BTW, Davy ended up racing the Monkeemobile against the Daytona in the episode:



The Daytona is worth $8,000,000 to $10,000,000 these days.

Cool find.

Another Monkee, Michael Nesmith (who's mother invented White Out / Liquid Paper) raced in the Baja 1000 in the early '80's.
