A man on Long Island bought a storage locker in 1989 for $100. It held an old Lotus Esprit with a dented roof and no wheels. The new owner did not realize at first that it was James Bond's submarine car from "The Spy Who Loved Me." He had never seen the 1977 movie. The car is going to be auctioned in London in September and is expected to bring $1 million.
