Classic muscle cars like a vintage 1965 Ford Mustang are pretty desirable. World Series tickets, apparently, are even more desirable.
That appears to be one man’s thinking, anyway. Kansas City Royals fan Jerod Main has decided to sell his 1965 ‘Stang for $24,000, which might seem like a bargain for such a classic, but it should be enough to cover the cost of tickets for his family of six, which are starting at just over $400, according to a quick Stubhub search. Those prices are subject to change, of course, and tickets might be selling for even more after last night's game. RELATED: See photos of the 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
On the other hand, perhaps the amount makes sense, as Main wants to see a game in both cities, so the Missouri resident would presumably have travel costs to deal with, as well. As for the car— the restomod Mustang has 289 cubic-inch V8 and a four-speed manual transmission, but Main figures he can get another car soon enough— after all, it’s been 29 years since the Royals last appeared in the Fall Classic.

Couldn’t he donate blood or take a temporary second job? Baseball is great, but a World Series game is a three-hour event—eventually Main will have to go home. The Mustang, though, could be his forever. It may not seem logical to most people, but hey, who says sports fandom is logical anyways? __________________________________________________ For More, Follow BoldRide on Twitter and Sign Up for our Newsletter
