This is the largest auction of classic cars in the world I believe. January 25-30 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Bring a very good line of credit and lots of dough. Here's where you can get a list of the hundreds of cars offered:

I can't imagine seeing that many cars auctioned off at one time.
Take a look at #993 on page 14. 1958 Corvette with the first retractable hardtop. One of one.
It was featured recently in one of the Vette mags I get. Don't recall which one right now.
How much money will exchange hands at that place? |eek|

That one caught my eye right away. My guess 600 big bills or more. It would be an eye popping experience to go there and just check out the cars. Maybe even get a game of golf or 2. Certainly a nice break from our northern winter.

They call the car "Scotty" and it's been appraised at $750,000. I got to see it at Pro Team Corvette in Napoleon Ohio two years ago. Fantastic car, will be selling for no reserve we'll have to see what it sells for. On a side note, if Pro team is anywhere in your area, it's worth the drive. Talk about kid in a candy/vette store |eek| 75 to 100 vetts on display! Mostly C1 to C3's, you don't know where to start looking.

In case anyone was watching "Merlin" that souped up, 1200 hp '74 Vette with the dual superchargers was auctioned off this weekend for around $60,000.00.  They were commenting on the fact that he claims to have around a quarter of a million wrapped up in it, but that for most builders/restorers it's not the money you'll get back out of it but the enjoyment you get once you're finished.

Rumor had it that when it was finished the thing scared the heck out of him.  That must be one heck of a rocket to scare a Viper driver enough to bail on it...!!!

Actually, Scotty only fetched $315,000, which is WAY below the appraised value of $750,000. The twin '53/'03 white with red Vettes with matching serial numbers went for $550,000. All of the results are posted at http://www.barrett-jackson.com/

I wish they had a total at the bottom of the last column.
I'm thinking it was closer to $100 Million.

Let's see, what is the commission on $100 Million?
