… the LAT Op-Ed page can help. In a piece about the Marlon Brando estate auction, economist Austan Goolsbee notes that much of the memorabilia is over-priced. However, there’s at least one exception:

Take Lot 198: Brando’s 1992 Lexus LS400 (“White with tan leather interior, just under 75,000 miles, with Nakamichi sound system, hard-wired cellphone, with tinted windows”). The Lexus is expected to sell for $4,000 to $6,000. But the blue book value for the same car is $6,255.

Of course, now that the LAT has pointed this out to the whole world, you can expect fierce bidding.
