$680k For A Powder Blue Ford Escort?

I wonder what he’d pay for a 1976 Pacer?

"The car will never be driven," said O'Quinn, who said that at least temporarily it will be warehoused with his other cars. "But hopefully, in my life, I'll be able to go back and touch this car and feel the pope's spirit."

O'Quinn, a personal injury lawyer who made a fortune in a multibillion dollar Texas tobacco settlement, outbid least seven other would-be buyers.

Mr. O’Quinn made his money by bilking taxpayers and smokers in the tobacco settlement, and by cashing in on perceived problems with silicone breast implants, problems which later proved to be non-existent.

In an overall consideration of the epidemiological evidence, the committee noted that because there are more than 1.5 million adult women of all ages in the United States with silicone breast implants, some of these women would be expected to develop connective tissue diseases, cancer, neurological diseases, or other systemic complaints or conditions.

Evidence suggests that such diseases or conditions are no more common in women with breast implants than in women without implants.

Personal injury law is very profitable. But John Edwards could have told us that.

In Boris’ opinion, personal injury attorneys should be required to pay cash, three times normal prices, for medical care. Call it “giving something back.”

You can unmask Boris now, or you can allow the horror to build, the suspense to turn your pitiful nerves to jelly. Come on, resist, don’t spoil the fun we have planned!
