    Is anyone planning on going to the car auction on Saturday at noon? I won’t be able to make it, but I would love to know how much the blue 68 Mustang convertible brings (high bid).

    I am going to try and get there. Both cars look as if they are in good shape.

    Great!
    Even if you are not a buyer, just watching the action unfold in front of you on these two cars would be worth the trip! I would guess that there will be some “spirited” bidding on both cars, but especially the Olds Cutlass Convert.
    Enjoy yourself, and please let us know what the “hammer” price ends up being.

    We went to the auction today. Looked at the cars for a short time and left. The Cutlass and Mustang bodies were in good shape, no visible rust and looked as though they had been painted not too long ago. Both interiors would need to be redone in my opinion. Alot of detail work needed to be done on both cars. The Mustang looked to be pretty much original excpet for the paint. It had a 2-barrel with a 289. It would be nice to find out what they went for. If you could get them for 10k or under apiece, that would be a pretty good price. Andy tooks some pics and is going to post them I believe.

    Yep I took several pics, but for some reason my card is now “corrupted” so I’m trying to recover them. They’ll be up in a bit

    Well my stupid camera card got corrupted somehow. I was able to recover these two images though:

    It looked as though there were about 150 people at the auction.

    But by the time it got over only 120 because 30 of them froze where they stood – it was absolutely freezing out there!!!
