    Anybody else catch some of the coverage of the Lambrecht Chevy auction on History channel? They had the guys from Top Gear America commentating. It had to be one of the most entertaining auctions I've ever seen. Prices were crazy! here's a link to a good article

    I really didn't understand why those cars were fetching such high prices, Except for the Cameo, there was nothing I saw when I watched that was particularly rare. I understand paying high prices for a low-mileage car when it's in showroom condition, but even the cars with two miles on them looked like they needed a complete restoration. I wasn't too keen on the commentators, either. They kept on talking over the bidding. I watched for about an hour, then tuned out.

    I think the Barrett-Jackson auctions, especially once they became televised, helped fuel the trend for "crazy" pricing. It seemed to me that a lot of the prices at their auctions were considerably higher than what you'd find at market value just shopping around.

    Usually these major car events are half a continent away from me one way or another, this one was just a couple hours away. I thought about going but as the frenzy grew knew I wouldn't get some great deal on a car, and figured as a spectator I would be fighting the crowds as much as looking at the cars. I went to a local car show today, and everybody there knew somebody who went, but didn't talk to anybody who was actually there, though most of us caught a few minutes of it on the History Channel.

    Those cars were so publicized for so long, you would need a bucket of money to compete with the bidders that came from everywhere. It was interesting, it was unique, but not for the average joe. PJ

    A 1967 Lincoln went across the B-J stage (NatGeo channel) for some outrageous amount.
