FARGO’S INFAMOUS ART

Sibling rivalry can be brutal, especially in the case of Emmit and Ray Stussy (both played by Ewan McGregor) in Fargo. Their animosity stems from, of all things, a valuable stamp handed down from their father, which Emmit talked Ray into trading it to him years ago. When Ray and his girlfriend, Nikki Swango (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead), plot to steal the stamp from Emmit’s mansion, it leads to yet another embarrassment for Ray – the stamp has been replaced with a framed drawing of a donkey. Nikki responds to the switcheroo by defacing the artwork by writing “Who’s the ass now?” in her own blood (see above). VIP Fan Auctions is now offering the infamous artwork – complete with graffiti – to the Fargo fan delightfully twisted enough to hang it in his or her own home.

DRIVE HOME THE FARGO CORVETTE

Ray Stussy’s (Ewan McGregor) red Corvette is a focal point of third season of FX’s Fargo – after all, it was the 1977 sports car the Ray traded his father’s stamp collection to get, a move that would prove to be a lopsided deal in favor of brother Emmit (also McGregor). It would also lead to a brutal sibling rivalry. Fans of Fargo don’t have to leverage their most valuable possession to get behind the wheel of Ray’s Corvette – VIP Fan Auctions is offering the actual car used in the series: a 1977 red Chevrolet Corvette hardtop with a 350ci/180 hp engine with 48,146 miles on the odometer. Click here for more detailed information about the car, and get in on the bidding. Whoever wins the Corvette will have to make arrangements to get it from Calgary, Alberta, Canada – a small price to pay for a vintage American sports car featured in one of television’s best shows.
