LOL. I was looking for some Vega's
Seems like strong money for a big bumper automatic car.
A friend that used to work for me moved to Az. and worked for BJ for 15 years. We kept in touch and he brought Craig to my house and shop to buy a 70 Hemi Challenger. They do things different. They check out every car that's run,(or used to) putting them on a lift and taking wheels off, inspecting everything. One year he told me that out of 4,400 cars that showed up, they ran 900. The rest had 24 hrs to remove their cars from the property. So those cars are pretty much cream of the crop, even if they are not collectibles. IMO this has hurt the enthusiast in buying, since investors are running the values way up. And many selling think they have a car of this caliber, while, lets face it, few of us do. While some of you guys have cars as nice as or nicer than what is run there, there are not many out there. Right or wrong, auctions like this are not hurting the value of our cars. And it's about time they take their place with what I consider lesser contemporaries.
The prices at Las Vegas are insanely high...
That may have been the way they used to do it, but most cars I've seen at their Auctions are so-so cars at best! Until you get to Friday & Saturday Nights.
Correct, and even the so-so cars look much better on TV.
That's definitely the case at Mecum. I have actually walked around cars and looked at some pretty good. Then you see the same cars on the block, and they don't even look like the same car. Don't know what filters or lighting is used, but it sure works. Haven't been to a BJ auction in over 25 years, but I still go to Mecum once a year. Friday and Saturday were always the nicer cars. Before that, entry level at best for the most part. Don't know if BJ does it, but it costs more at Mecum to run a car on Friday or Saturday.
Definitely costs more @ BJ to run the cars on a Friday or Saturday Night when the Cameras are on & the Booze is Flowing!
