BrokeBack Buying frenzy


A half-ton pick-up truck used in the award-winning gay Western "Brokeback Mountain" has sold, and the seller, a Canadian high school student, hopes the proceeds will help pay his way through college.
I think 60 grand will do him fine.
Matthew Kennedy said he bought the black, 1950 GMC truck last year at an auction of vehicles used in the movie because he liked its looks, and only decided to sell when he realized the amount of attention the film was garnering.

"The movie was getting a lot bigger and I thought I could sell it and put away the money for school," he said.

Kennedy's eBay description of the vehicle says it was driven by Jack Twist, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, when he meets Ennis Del Mar, played by Heath Ledger, at the start of the film.

I'm just far too practical (and cheap) to pay that much money for any vehicle, much less a raggedy-ass truck.
