That auction just went Stupid, Stupid... Right from the beginning.

Then there was the idiot that bid an outrageous price on the SS because he wanted the SS emblems and acc. plus the big block for his own "non" SS car.. If You're going to buy an SS car then why would you want to dump it for a NON one..?

There were lots more like that. :eek:

Fortunately, I was in Laughlin, NV last weekend, and didn't hear a word about the auction, but I expected it to be nuts. I met a Veteran in a wheelchair at the show on Thursday who was looking for a big block Chevelle with a 4 speed (luckily, mine's a 350). I told him there would be alot more cars there by Saturday. He said he couldn't make it, he was headed to Barrett/Jackson. Now there's a place for people with more money than sense...........

Does that ash tray have a truck attached to it?

No Truck.
The truck it came from was rotted from the lower half down, had a tree growing through the hood and sold for $40.000

But it was a numbers matching truck that had less than 5 miles on it.. so that's a numbers matching ash tray. Ya see the newer model year trucks showed up so they just pushed the truck out back. This very truck also had heater and radio delete so that makes it a "copo" truck... plus it had dog dish hubcaps.

The truck was borrowed by Hollywood as a prop and it includes certified documentation that proves Clint Eastwood used that ash tray during filming of "The first Dirty Harry" Movie.

So the ash tray is a steal at $750.00 :yes:

I found this one interesting:

Truck had 3 miles on it and sold for $27,000 :eek:

So... what's the guy do with it? Do anything and it's no longer "original". I guess I am at a loss of what the "plan" is, other than putting these trucks and cars in a museum.

I'm at a loss to understand why someone would pay 27,000 for it in the first place........

I am also at a loss as to why a dealer would literally put brand new vehicles "out to pasture" simply becasue "the new models arrived".

When they interviewed the Daughter, the Guy asked her about the brand new cars getting put in the back. She kinda walked around the question without answering it...

Do you guys think there is something less than honest going on? At first I was amazed at the story. Then I wondered why a dealer would have so many "new" vehicles kept in storage rather then selling them. I considered a mental issue such as dementia or hoarding. Back then, mental illness wasn't out in the open like it is now, so it seems a possibility.

I think the bigger display of mental illness took place at the auction. Some of those bids were pretty sick!

Nope, I don't think anything was dishonest. The vehicles belong to the dealer, he can do what he wants. The articles say the owner simply had a self enforced rule that he wouldn't sell any vehicles to his customers after the new models came out. I just don't get why he didn't sell them to another dealer or something similar. Letting them rot down out back seems wasteful.

Even if you think it turned out that the vehicles did, in the end, make great money if you do the math they brought pennies on the dollar compared to investing what they were worth back when they were new. Let's say that '64 pickup was worth $2,000 and he had invested that money, it would have increased in value to about $338,000 today.... so the $27,000 the truck sold for was a very, very poor return on the investment. http://dqydj.net/sp-500-return-calculator/

I guess maybe the owner simply had enough money that he just didn't care?
