Dr. Timothy Leary, the clinical psychologist whose advocacy of LSD and other mind-altering drugs (“turn on, tune in, drop out”) made him a counterculture hero in the psychedelic 1960s.
In 2007, Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider put his orange 1969 Dodge Charger up for auction on eBay. It wasn’t the “General Lee” used in the original show, only in a TV movie, but it didn’t matter—a man named William Fisher came in with a winning bid of $9.9 million. It would have been the most expensive item ever sold on eBay … but Fisher failed to pay and closed his eBay account. A year later, the car sold at an auction house for $450,000.
