Ok, what makes this car special?
« on: October 11, 2007, 05:21:19 PM »
I'm looking on ebay and come across this car.  To me, my car is better, but nowhere near the money this guy wants
what do you guys think?

Other than the low miles there isn't really too much special about that T/A. 400 auto pretty much standard.....

I would love to have it!  But, I don't see anything so "special" about it either.

I figure it's worth 4 grand tops, not 10 grand

I agree with that.  I almost bought a '79 Camaro the other day here in town.  They wanted 5K for it.  I went to look at the car and it was rusted to pieces!  I didn't bother to go back.  People just don't get that these cars are not worth that kind of money in that condition.

I often have to laugh at people who want or think their cars are worth Barret Jackson prices, for rusty projects

Maybe there is a winning lottery ticket in the glove box?
 Nice, but not $10,000 nice...maybe half!

Anyone been watching the Mecum auction?  I will say this, their prices are a heck of a lot different than B-J...  A 69 Camaro RS-SS that sells on B-J for $65,000 goes for $25,000 at the Mecum auction.  Funny, isn't it?

B-J has this one woman (kind of attractive), I think she is one of the owners or organizers wife, who does a real good job getting bidders pumped up and willing to spend their money.  It seems like everytime I watch the auction she has her hand on some guy telling him how badly he really wants that car.  I'm sure that has a lot to do with why the B-J cars sell so high.  ;)

Oh yeah -- the brunette.  She definitely works the bidders up. ;)

her name is Amy Assiter.  She is married to one of the auctioneers (fat bald guy) Spanky Lassiter
here is a link to their site

This guy gives hope to some of us "ugly" people.
