Barrett Jackson

Any of you guys watch any of the auction. Some pretty cool stuff on there. Sure would like to go into that place with about 1.5 mil.

$1.5 million? That's a start.

Just saw part of it tonight. I usually watch a bit during the week, but Saturday is the day when they bring out the show-stoppers and million dollar cars. I'll kind of get fixated on the '67 - 71 American musclecars. *drools all over self*

I just seen that black shelby sell on there. Looked like a nice car, and they always have nice rides on that show.
Who is Barret Jackson anyways?

Some guy that has lots of money. When you watch the auction he is always on the main stage with the auctioneer. I think that's all they do is auction nice vehicles.

I read an article about the future of car-collecting, saying that the people who invest in Picasso paintings and Stradivarius violins are now becoming more interested in cars. This is especially true of the American musclecar segment e.g. '67-71 supercars.

But these buyers have always been around, except until recently they've only been sticking wiith their vintage dusenbergs, gto ferraris, and gullwing mercedes, which is fine b/c I'll never have a million or so dollars to buy one of those.

Here's my rant:
But the thing that bugs me is that they're starting to buy up the cars that were originally geared towards the average joe - that's me. Some cars have already sold in excess of $1 million - and these buyers are just getting started. What a rip - I'll never be able to own a Yenko or Hemicuda.

I know what you are saying. I remember when you could pick up an early mustang for about $5000.00. Not any more.

Could you imagine those guys who sold their mopar 426 hemi for peanuts in the '80s? 20 years later they're breaking $100 k.

I remember seeing a magazine cover quite a few years back. It said that the early muscle cars were going to hit the 100k mark. If only a guy knew.

Yeah, Zip. And '60s Z/28s, COPOs, Hemi 426s are selling regularly at $100 - 150k and some are now over $200k. All factory cars (although COPOs are special order items) that anyone could have bought. Unbelievable.

And to think that during the '70s gas shortage, people were selling these for way less than they bought them for (literally couldn't give them away), and throughout the '80s into the '90s they were still inexpensive. I completely missed the boat! Kind of before my time so I never had the chance to own one, although I guess I would be kicking myself if I owned one and sold it. Now I want one, and they're way out of my league.

If you like American muscle, here's a site I recommend www.corvettes-musclecars.com. This is a private collection of about 50 cars out of Seattle, WA. Informative write-ups accompany most of the cars. However, definitely take a look at his '69 ZL1 Corvette and '69 ZL1 Camaro. You'll chunder all over yourself. A '69 ZL1 Camaro sold at Barrett-Jackson a few years ago for about $450k.

Sounds like your getting a cool car sed.

66 I hear you about these guys buying up the average joe cars. It does suck cause i would love to own one, and I garuantee you I would definatly appreciate the car for what it is, not the value of it.
