That would be a fun auction to go to. The Cameo pickup,looked like it had the roof caved in above the windshield. Anyway,there are some cool cars there. P3n

WOW! I'm sure a good many of us are wishing we kept a few of what we had once-just like the sleds!   P3n

 History Channel ,  last night ,  had a 3 hour episode on-site during parts of auction, etc . .   anyone catch it ?  , . .   or know anyone who was there in-person ?   .   i believe the total number of vehicles auctioned,   as they mentioned it,  was   496  (?) . .

It was a neat auction-

BUT-

From a strictly ROI point of view, I'm so very thankful that my ancestors bought farm land rather than new cars to park in a woods somewhere. No comparison at all.

This morning, spoke with a friend about the auction. He related that he'd sold a couple of year old 84 Vette for 16K. Yeah, he and I both agree, it wasn't one of Chevies most valuable cars sold, but anyway- put the money in an investment account labeled (  not real original, but it worked) Corvette. And never touched the dividends or interest. The account is now worth 88K. No way would any 84 Vette be worth anywhere close to that today. And, he doesn't miss that particular Vette, either. He would like the 65 back he sold when he got a letter winning a vacation to Vietnam from the Army, however......
