Wait a minute, wait a minute. Some of you are saying that Barrett-Jackson is responsible for inflating prices on cars.
That statement would indicate to me that there is some kind of collusion going on between the seller and the buyer.
IMO they are simply providing a service, or vehicle, if you will, to sell cars. That's what they are in business for. When an Amphicar sells for over 100 grand, is that their "fault"? Sure there is a lot of hype and presentation, but that is what it is all about. When you see the cars coming across on the first couple of days, you see prices that are more than reasonable. Last night I saw a 61-62 Caddie, series 62, 2 door hardtop, with 1 re-paint go for 21 grand.
I'm sure that re-paint must have cost 15 grand. Take all the chrome off, sand the imperfections, paint, and only 21 grand? How about a 59 Continental convertible @ 43 grand? There is no way you could get that car to look the way it did for 43 grand. A car, regardless of make, model, year, degree of restoration, resto-mod, etc, is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay for it.
As to Amy Sparks/Lassiter... She is to me, eye candy, and should I ever win the Lottery, and get to go there and buy, I'm buying from her. As to the other " commentators ", well, they have probably forgotten more about these individual cars that I ever knew.
Craig Jackson is fat? So................. what.
I could go on and on but there is a really yellow Jag coming across the block now and I must watch.
My ride is a 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado, ( sorry no pics ) that now has 311,000 kms on it. Bought it in 93 for 8 grand CDN
and down through the years have probably put double that into it in repairs. My trade in on it was a 1977 Plymouth Gran Fury Brougham 2dr hdtp. Should have keep the Fury.
