There's a couple REALLY good bargains there, but I'm not sure I am up to an 11 hour trip to Montgomery just to break my back loading up the van.

No,  but there are still 4 hours to go.  I really don't have time to even go get it right now though,  during any of there pickup dates,  so may end up passing on it.  Sure does look like a blast though.

Being the owner of several project 6.9s, and  one really nice euro 6.9, I'm really surprised the one in the auction brought 9200 (plus fees).  That car needed a lot of work.

Someone really made out like a bandit here.

 

 

 

 

 






Now, while these asking prices are highly inflated, and both pieces needed a little work, there was still several grand that went for under $30 after fees.    But I ain't no kid anymore, and at 59, my body just can't hump heavy furniture like it used to.

I'm pretty sure this Rolex was worth more than 8 grand. The prices on vintage Rolexes has gone through the roof.

Three year old boat that was originally sold for $100k sold overnight at $55k. The don't know boats at all but I watched that one out of curiosity. Bidding ran up from $28k between 10pm and 1am.

The Cobalt was a steal at 2.6 Steves. Other than a bad engine, it was solid. And the engine is based on an LS so how hard could that be to fix? Riiight...

Having worked on a few of these, I think it's possibly a fair price only if you did all of your own labor. Even then, a sense of masochism would be necessary. Don't get me wrong- I love these as a finished product. It's just getting from where this one is now to that point is neither cheap nor easy.

In reply to 128racecar :

Yeah, I love them.  I do all my own work on them too,  but the values just have never seemed to be inline with how special they are.  
I have a project 6.9 I'm finishing up.  In about a week it should run, drive,  and the suspension should pump up.  It has poor paint, a decent interior,  and minimal rust.  I'll be happy if it sells for half what this one did.
