The 62 doesn’t it hurts the value of the car with the wrong trunk lid.they are good cars I’ve owned every year model from 1960 to 1970.

Comment on Eye Candy: Retromobile 2016 by jclumahttps://news.classiccars.com/eye-candy-retromobile-2016/#comment-3288 Mon, 08 Feb 2016 22:43:52 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=66861#comment-3288 Well that Jaguar Heritage car kit looked pretty impressive so I went to my local hobby shop to buy one. But they said they didn’t carry any of those. Even looked at me kinda funny. And I was ready to pay up to $100 for one! I guess I’ll just have to find all the parts somewhere else. But it sure does look cool up on that wall.

Comment on Exclusive: Barrett-Jackson replaces Spanky as lead auctioneer by Michael Yourkevichhttps://news.classiccars.com/barrett-jackson-promotes-new-lead-auctioneer-replace-spanky/#comment-3278 Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:10:58 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=52634#comment-3278 As usual it’s all about the money for BJ. They can boast all they want about being a no reserve auction but as far as I’m concerned that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The pauses when bidding stops are far to long and are only emphasized when they comment ” this car is way under the money” both Craig and especially Steve are notorious for this not to mention the correction on who had the high bid is a blatant attempt at running up the price. Not your call boys drop the hammer!

Comment on Analysis: Why some cars didn’t sell during Arizona Auction Week by ricktcorvhttps://news.classiccars.com/analysis-cars-didnt-sell-arizona-auction-week/#comment-3271 Fri, 05 Feb 2016 21:55:11 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=66488#comment-3271 Kim, I think Andy was echoing what was evident in every auction. The pre-war American classics were way off the mark when taken as a whole and a major contributor to the results. That fact and the flat market for European sports cars (excluding Porsches) played a part. I was surprised that one of the major factors affecting all of the Scottsdale auctions was that for the first year Mecum’s Kissimmee auction took place before Scottsdale this year. Traditionally Kissimmee (the largest of Mecum’s auctions) takes place after Scottsdale. Mecum’s sales were up 35% ($27M ) above last year – that factor cannot be overlooked.

Comment on Analysis: Why some cars didn’t sell during Arizona Auction Week by Kim Piercehttps://news.classiccars.com/analysis-cars-didnt-sell-arizona-auction-week/#comment-3270 Fri, 05 Feb 2016 16:34:10 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=66488#comment-3270 Regarding top tier American Classics (true classics). I disagree with your numbers! According to the data I collected from all the auctions that had estimated values, 38% sold for in value range or above and a sell through rate of 69%. Although sell through was a little lower than average of the overall numbers they clearly didn’t sell for half their price as stated. Their may have been a few that did but if you look at what they were it would be obvious why. Kim Pierce

I have also been lucky enough to see your auction(s) in person a number of times. This year just was not as entertaining as it was in the past with Spanky and Amy. I also saw the pricing fluctuate up and down too many times this year as others have also commented. Hopefully Mr. Mast and associates gets it right in the future. It still is the prime collector car auction in the nation.

Comment on Inaugural Future Classics Car Show fills High Street district with a diverse array of cars and people by B.C. Zimmermannhttps://news.classiccars.com/classiccars-com-hosts-inaugural-future-classics-car-show/#comment-3267 Fri, 05 Feb 2016 00:16:00 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=65853#comment-3267 Really think the Maserati TC built for Chrysler from 1989-1991 is being very overlooked as a true hybrid classic. With proper attention, such a neat little all-purpose Tourisimo Cabriolet could have been easily continued in many directions of further development, incorporating the many ideas for improvement that were suggested by many people with varying interests. It’s a beautiful, clean small grand-touring auto.

I also think that these cars have reached a peak, with values at between $525,000 and $630,000. The car at Gooding should have sold for the high bid, especially in this market.

It could be a minor ‘correction’ or it could be a major downturn. We’ll know when the sales figures are tallied for Palm Beach and Amelia Island.
