People who visit The Garage often ask questions, and that is why we’re here. But sometimes readers provide answers.

Such is the case today. If you asked, “Is the 1961 Corvette given to Kirby Puckett at his big retirement party at the Metrodome for sale on E-bay?” I would say it certainly looks like it is, based on this link sent to us by Dan.

I remember one part of Kirby’s speech that night very specifically. He said “I saved my money good.”

Grammar was not Kirby’s claim to fame, winning World Series games was.

If you have saved your money well, perhaps you would like to bid on a piece of history.
