The Story of NASA Astronaut Alan Bean's 1969 Corvette


Even though Danny Reed was outbid back in 1971 as he attempted to own a piece of NASA's history, luck definitely was on his side as his $3,230 bid was accepted when the winner of the sealed-bid auction was unable to come up with the funds.

If Mr. Reed's account of how he became the owner of Alan Bean's Corvette is not the perfect example of serendipity, I don't know what is.

Great story!
