What an incredibly boring auction. I looked over the entire docket and the only car that stood out was a 1959 Chrysler 300E. An awful lot of Mustangs and Camaros and an incredible bunch of 2000 plus. Getting to look like a used car lot but with inflated descriptions and prices. Z/28s, Shelbys and R cars everywhere. Going to the snowmobile races over at the local.

Maybe by Sat. night they will be done with all the Mustangs and Camaros and get into some interesting classics, customs and rods. Ed

What does it say when Mustangs and Camaros are bringing more than 30s Rolls and Cords. Ed

The Full Classic cars like Ed is talking about is not the kind of cars that BJ sells as a rule. So the folks with that kind of money and into the big cars do not attend this auction. They are down the road at the RM sale where the old money hangs out. Remember a few years ago BJ had a few of those cars with reserves and 75% did not sell on the Saturday night. Different crowds for different cars.
I watched it for 1/2 hr. this evening selling some used cars to new cars. Got board and turned it off.
I see John S. paid $2,100,000. for the new charity car. He can afford it being with the New York Mafia crime family.

Bubble Butt sticker girl did not disappoint again this year.
Who the **** let Cristy Lee in with that jacket on...Zippers and bucklers everywhere. Wouldn't let her within 10' of any car.
See Toyota snuck in...only a matter of time before we start seeing tuner cars crossing the block
John S spent nearly 5 mil on "Charity" cars. Nice tax deduction/money wash
All about the resto mod... Stock/original cars were down or holding. The "new money"/younger generation don't seem to care about originality.
Corvette, Corvette, Corvette, Corvette, Charity Car, Corvette, Corvette, Corvette,
It truly hurts my brain. Can you drive any of the Sat. cars or do you just take them home and look at them? Rich folk problems I guess
Did see some deals but then you convert to Can $$ and add the buyers premium and...Always nice to dream.

She really was the only fun part of the program. Kinda funny to hear them talk about the rarity of the 9th Corvette or Mustang across the block.
Were there any Chevelles saw one Nova. I did learn the difference between a Daytona and a Superbird. The numbers of those cars produced always baffle me .
They say only 500 were produced for the public but never talk about how many were produced for racing. Same with the 70s with such a limited
production run and it seems the wing cars were on every race track in the States for a few years. With the number of wrecks I have seen in pictures on tracks and on the street
it always amazes me how many are left. Same goes for Nomads always one for sale . Ed

Sunday is the day I like to watch. That is when the cars that some of us (not me) could possibly afford are sold. Maybe when I win the lottery

They did mention she writes the purchase price so you can see what everything sold for when you walk around.

I know a lot of people scoff at B-J, but I'm sure just about everybody sneaks a peek. They claim this was their best event ever and raised 10M for charity. If you haven't registered on their site, it is worth while. You get all the selling prices as well as the full docket well before the auction. It certainly gives you an indication when to watch and they stream the event. Once you are registered, you get all their events and you don't even have to bid.

I thought this was really interesting.

 

A great informative article about Selling at No-Reserve at auctions by our friend, Muffy Bennett.

Article by Muffy Bennett, CEO – Bennett Automotive Specialists, Inc.

Selling a collector car at auction with “no reserve” isn’t for everyone.

I vividly remember being a bundle of nerves behind the auction block moments before my first car was to cross. . . the butterflies in my stomach were so intense that I lost my cookies in a nearby trash can.

I’ve sold millions of dollars of collector cars since. For the cars that I consign to auction, I am regularly asked why I always sell “no reserve.”

Having been in the auction industry for years, I know a few things the general public isn’t aware of.

I’ll let you in on a few industry secrets, and then perhaps you’ll understand why I am such an advocate of selling my cars at “no reserve,” and not just some bat**** crazy chick.

On a “reserve” car, the auction house has the right (stated in their terms and conditions usually) to bid on behalf of a seller close to the reserve amount, with the hope that “live money” (a real bidder) will raise their hand during the process. Yes, that’s right – what appears to be bidding in the auction arena might not actually be real bidding; the auction team is doing what the industry calls “working up to the reserve.” And YES, this practice is perfectly legal!

Once “live money” (a real bidder) is in the arena, one of the auction team members will turn to the seller and ask if they want to drop their reserve and sell it.

Oftentimes reserve cars won’t sell because the owner has unrealistic expectations of its value, and have too lofty a reserve. Like many owners, I too have overspent and lost sight that a car is restored for the passion and love of them, and not because an owner should expect to see every dollar back when they sell it.  Owners don’t always realize that just because it took years and tens of thousands of dollars to restore a car doesn’t mean the car is actually worth what they put into it.

As a result of a car crossing the auction block and not selling with a reserve, many sellers (who haven’t read the terms and conditions) will believe they “turned away $X” for their car — when in reality there may not have been an actual bidder in the room. This practice establishes a false ceiling for the value of a marque (figuratively speaking).

When a “no reserve” car crosses the auction block, a bidder knows the car will go home with the last bidder standing. As a result, natural competition takes over, and a bidding war ensues. A great auction team will keep the momentum up, so bidders are more apt to get caught up in the excitement of the auction. Add alcohol, a TV camera, and peer pressure to the excitement level in the auction ring, and voilà! The collector car on the auction block will sell for its true market value. A quality no-reserve auction environment will typically outsell a private sale.

Having held a key role in a large auction firm, I know that this is the only real way to determine a car’s worth: the price a vehicle brings in a “no reserve” setting, where the market dictates the value. It is worth what someone is willing to pay in this scenario.

Especially if it is a passion-driven environment. I only consign my personal collector cars to the most noteworthy of auction houses: auctions which have the most pre-qualified bidders who are ready to buy. However if a client asks me to represent their car at another auction house with a reserve, I will happily oblige – like I said: selling “no reserve” isn’t for everyone!

(And yes – I still have the butterflies in my stomach immediately before one of my cars crosses the block – but fortunately they now fly in formation!)
