    Default anybody watching barret/jackson?

    i watch every year and it is good to see the economy has not effected the price of cars being sold.man i wish it was the same for our boats.with boats you would think it would be the same.most of our boats are one offs,no others like it.so why is it different for boats.some cars they made thuosands of them.and they still hold value.even the cars that there where only less than five hundred hold crazy value.why is it that most of our one off boats aint worth shit.i just dont understand.i hope that things change with our boat values.because i know of alot of boats that i would buy if i had the money that is being spent on these cars.we need a barret/jackson for boats.

    I was there Friday night. Unbelievable how people spend stupid money on shit!!! I guess that's part of the fascination. Even new cars being auctioned for charity!!! It blows my mind every time.

    The charity, and the amounts spent on it, are a pretty decent thing in the overall auction. Some of the charities are run by some really good people. The one with Darrel Gwynn comes to mind first. Many of the restored, and resto mod stuff, you couldn't come close to building for what they're sold for. The nostalgia stuff, old cobras, ferarri's, etc. go for stupid money.

    Its good to see the Big money is being spent on American iron.
    10 Years ago it would have been the foreign classics.
    Wish I had an old Hemi or Boss or Shelby tucked away..

    the overall good thing is yes there is still money being spent on american cars.i think the prices are up from last year so that is good that there is still money to be spent on toys.it is good to see alot of money went to charity.victory junction gang,darrel gwynn foundation.these are charitys that are making a big impact on peeples lives for the better.there was a couple of older ladies from canada that bought a few cars. that seemed like a waist of money.where not very colectable.some of the custom cars went for way under what it would cost to build.sad to see a guy invest 100k into a car and only get 65k to 70k.sucks.just got to build what peeple would buy.but you never know what one person is looking for.

    i think they are scared they would have to drive them.you would think that you would see more older boats in these guys collections.they just dont have a clue on what they are missing out on.shit if i had half the money some of these guys spend.i would buy all my friends a bad ass v-drive.

    I'm glad to see the older classics -30's cars- bring the money again. I was there with my Dad years ago when the owner of Domino's Pizza bought a Duesenberg for 1mill.- B-J's first car to sell for over a Million. The last few years you could pick up the few that were accepted into the auction for 5 figures! I just saw a 35 Cad V12 hammer at $275 (tivo). Many of the buyers though are not "car guys" but investors- an investor won't be intimidated by a Cobra, Stang, Camero, Cad, Packard, etc. - A 70 Howard Woody, with a monster blown BBC would intimidate the "tie guy" and shrivel his wallet like nuts in cold water!
