    The 51 Merc Custom Coupe will bring $49.5K (this number includes the 10% buyer premium).

    I don’t know about the other two.

    #1 $55k Great looking Merc, the colors may hold it back.

    #2 $375k Burt Reynolds and ties to a very popular movie will move this up

    #3 $185k The Ring Brothers have another winner here.

    #4 $135k Voodoo Larry is a big name in that genre of cars.

    The economy is doing alright, should be an interesting auction.

    Wasn’t that Voodoo Larry car at Blanchardville a couple years ago?

    A year ago there was a 1977 Trans Am that came up on Ebay stating it was a movie promo car it was super rough, and I posted it on a Trans Am message forum and most folks thought it was fake … Today some photos of the title and build sheet were posted from folks at the auction, and the VIN matches the one in the Ebay ad … As I recall the car sold for about 9k last year…

    Link to Ebay ad:

    Has anyone else noticed that there are some old, familiar faces missing at this years BJ Auction in Scottsdale? I began to wonder about what had happened to Spanky and Amy Assister. Spanky was and has been the lead auctioneer for BJ for many years. Here is what I found posted online….

    I noticed that also. The bidders assistant who is working the stage now actually had the same hairdo as Amy Assiter last time I saw her. I bet old Spanky was madder than hell.

    I noticed Steve Davis talking before and during almost every car. He seemed to be reeeeeaally trying to push the sales…more so than in previous years. I noticed on Sunday he actually almost insulted the crowd during bidding for one Boss 302. He did his usual “this is a (whatever dollar amount) car” crap and then “instructed” the crowd on how the sellers deserve better.

    Seriously? Look dude, the cars are worth whatever someone is willing to pay for them. You telling people what you think they’re worth does not make it so. maybe 4-5 years ago you could dictate a car’s value and people listened, but the hobby (much like the housing market) was artificially inflated by the wealthy and now it is leveling back to a more realistic level. Ron Pratt sold much of his collection and I wonder when RIck Hendricks will follow suit. Once the old rich guys are done, the values are going to drop. The 30 and under crowd see a Corvette and see it as an “old man’s car”. Does anyone really think a kid of today will pay $100,000 for a Corvette 20 years from now?Sure they like the musclecars (probably because of Fast & Furious) but talk to one and they don’t see why they are worth so much.
