Richard Petty’s grandson, Thad Moffitt, to make Daytona debut in ARCA season opener

Richard Petty’s grandson, Thad Moffitt, to make Daytona debut in ARCA season opener Thad Moffitt has eight prior starts in the ARCA season, but this will be his first start at Daytona International Speedway.

The iconic 38-foot Wellcraft Scarab KV was prominently featured on the classic 1980's television show, along with the Ferrari Daytona Spyder replica.

Children of the 1980s who recall the adventures of detective Sonny Crocket in the iconic TV show Miami Vice now have a chance to own his boat and his car. The original Wellcraft Scarab and one of the original Daytona Spyder film cars are up for sale, but you might need every penny Crocket nabbed from all the drug dealing bad guys to buy them. They’re featured on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $20 million.

Technically speaking, just the boat is for sale. The seller will throw in the Ferrari Daytona for free, which doesn’t sound too bad considering vintage Daytonas can easily fetch over $1 million on their own. Thing is, the car isn’t actually a Ferrari – the television show used replicas built on the C3 Chevrolet Corvette. Granted they were outstanding replicas that are worth some hefty cash by themselves, and this one in particular does have a direct Hollywood connection as being the last one built for the show. Still, the crux of this sale is obviously the boat.

This isn’t a replica, and as Miami Vice fan will recall, it was nearly as iconic as the car. It’s a Wellcraft Scarab 38 KV, a 38-foot offshore beast with twin Mercury engines, and according to the press release on the sale, Don Johnson had considerable input into the look of the boat. It appears to be in great shape, and we’re happy to see that it’s been in the water at least some of the time over the last 30 years.

Harrison Burton wins ARCA race in Daytona debut

Harrison Burton wins ARCA race in Daytona debut Harrison Burton won the ARCA Series season opener in his first career race at Daytona International Speedway. Burton turned 18 in October to meet the age requirement to race on the biggest and fastest NASCAR-sanctioned tracks. His first crack at Daytona came Saturday in what is considered the kickoff of the SpeedWeeks. Burton was leading when a crash with 10 laps remaining brought out a caution and set up two final restarts, one in overtime. Burton is the son of former NASCAR driver and current NBC analyst Jeff Burton, who won a Cup race at Daytona in 2000.

$20 million is certainly a large figure for any boat that’s not an epic floating yacht-fortress, but the current owner – a man named David Martino – makes a strong point in the press release. The world of collectible cars has considerable history on which to gauge values, but boats such as this one aren’t as well supported.

"It is hard to put a value on such an iconic collector's piece," Martino said. "I view this as priceless and irreplaceable. It's unique, and highly collectible, a true masterpiece. It's definitely a Picasso of boats, so we've priced it at $20 million on eBay."

1 of 55 Ferrari California Spyder Is The American Dream.
Despite being rebodied in 1962 from a 1959 250 Coupe, this stunning example is matching numbers with all build records to boot Widely acknowledged as both the most sought after and most beautiful car ever produced, the Ferrari California Spyder is a testament to what the twentieth century facilitated in terms of engineering and design. The grand-tourer to beat all grand-tourers, this is the car you dream of when driving into that idyllic sunset listening to Hotel California as you waft down Route 66. The 250 series Ferraris produced between 1953 and 1964 are undoubtedly their most famous.
