Boy you can really tell the difference between the two auctions. The Mecum most cars barely got to 50k, but it seemed like all the cars on Barrett-Jackson started at 50k LOL. Either one though I'd love to visit when I get a major win under my belt

    '71 Oldsmobile now at 80 grand.

    When I win the JP in about a year, I'll get one.

      Last weekend in February there's an auction in Atlantic City. Been going a few years now, just to look at the cars.

        The prices are stupid. Watching Barr with my neighbor. He got a 72 charger w/440 in Cali for 5500. Even if i won 5mill i would'nt pay 100k for a Custom 67 nova.

          Its nice to see other people on the board who are fans of Barrett-Jackson.  I've been watching for years (since early 2000's)  I agree many of the cars are overpriced... its a rich and wealthy man's playground.  One of the regulars "Don" won 90 million in PB... a few years ago.  He's an older guy that sits in the front with overalls.  My wife and I will prob do the Vegas show, we were suppose to go last year but something came up... if anyone on the board wants to do the Vegas show in Sept, let me know.  I know its to early to plan.

                      Older cars were classics. Theye have cool shapes.

                      Like the '68 Corvette Stingray.

                      Let me ax you a question. Would you like to own one of my paintings or would you rather own the original Mona Lisa?
