    Has anyone been watching the Mecum Auto Auction? Cars on Thursday usually go fairly cheap ($30k-$40k) for very nice cars, but they were going for around a $100k. Today isn’t any different everything is going for big money

      way overpriced, but nice, same cars get resold over & over again

            I sold one at BJ in 2004. I believe it has sold 4-5 times since.

              Auction success is very dependent on crowd. Thus buy early. Sell on the weekend!

                Don’t forget this auction has been running for a week now, started last Thursday 1/6. This is not the typical first or second day. Tomorrow’s the big day.

                  We went to Streaming last year, and not sure if you can pick up the Auctions. I miss watching them, and seeing how the other half lives...
