If anyone is on the fence about going to Indy to see the auction, go!!
I was there yesterday and Mecum set up the lobby of one of the main buildings with all of Steve’s items and cars. They put up walls and made a replica of sorts of his museum, with the 3 RTS cars inside, and signs and posters on the walls, and dealership floor displays and parts and accessory displays. All very well organized, with the Mopar items together, and then smaller areas/walls had some Ford and AMC items. Amazing to see, I’m glad I got to see it before it gets broken up.
Most of the online items sold so far have sold for huge prices. Some scat park ashtrays went over $1500, which has to be a world record for a price paid for an ashtray! I saw a set of Ford wheels and tires, I assume for an AC Cobra, were over $12,000 so far, even a Mopar space saver was at $3750.
I was high bidder Wednesday for several parts, and yesterday for a glass, which I was able to pick up there yesterday and save shipping costs.

Most of the items that sold today seemed to be bringing a lot of money. And there is a 23% bidder premium and 7% IN sales tax.
Factor in shipping if you can't get to Indy to pick up your purchases yourself, and people are really spending some big money!

So checked back today to see where is stands and damn near spit out my coffee.
Oh well, maybe I can still land a key chain... coffee

I really wish I would have made a trip to see this stuff at some point during the last 12+yrs since I joined & first saw him post on here. frown

My favorite right now is the Dakin # FF0002 at $ 1805.00.

I've seen them sell for $ 65 on ebay, shoot less than $ 50 too.

The ones you see on eBay aren’t doubt repros, but still...
I’m watching the NOS BF Goodrich space saver tire that’s bid over $4000. It’s not even the early ‘70 models style. Those in good unused condition typically sell for $650-$1000 and someone is going to fork out 4 grand plus 23% and maybe sales tax for one?

I guess that one is a bargain at $4k... didn't see the one that already sold for $7,005.00 Plus tax & commission eek
Lot # FF0025: Plymouth Road Runner Promo Display

Same High Bidder on both of them...
Man... paying almost $14k (all in) for just 2 displays is some serious dedication to the cause.

What do you look for on the BF Goodrich space saver tire to tell that it's a early 70's one?

Early ones say 7.75-14
TUBELESS
Which changed at some point in the ‘70 model year to F78-14 TUBELESS
REPLACES 7.75-14
I don’t know when that change occurred, my mid April ‘70 built T/A has had the later style one since at least ‘78, and I assume it’s the original spare, so the change was prior to that, but maybe one of the historians here has a better idea of when?
Steve’s sunroof hemi Challenger is fairly early build, so maybe he bought the space saver in the auction for it when restoring it, but later found an early style one to use instead.

I spent three hours today watching the insanity for the "Road Art"! Very few of the dozens of Mopar people I know who were in attendance bidding actually walked away with anything. Just who in the he11 is buying this stuff?!? shruggy

With any auction, some just get "caught up" in the bidding frenzy & pay crazy prices. Then some are just to embarrassed to admit it & ramble-on about how it is "worth it". I sure hope most of these bidders "really" need some items, that would justify the price. Anyone thinking of them as an "investment" should just have bought Radio Shack Stock.

Yeah really... there were a few small items I thought might be nice to have so I signed up.
Finally this morning one came up... Basically a plastic Road Runner key chain and a few other tin RR clips, and what appeared to be a RR steering wheel center piece. I really only wanted the RR key chain to actually "use" for my RR keys... other stuff was just a bonus. I figured it was probably "worth" $40-50 bucks... but based on everything else that went before it, likely to go for 175+. I decided what the heck, I blow a few hundred on dumb stuff all the time, so why not. By the time I logged on it was already sitting over $150... so I thought I'd toss out $230 (figuring that would be plenty high enough for a key chain)... By the time the website "stopped" telling me to "Check off the Terms of Service Agreement" that was already clearly checked off... the $230 I typed in the space had vanished and it was asking if I wanted to confirm the current New "required" bid of $405.00.... for a fricking KEY CHAIN & trinkets. I thought I was nuts for wanting toss out a $230bid... I can't imagine the thinking that went into actually agreeing to pay over $400 for it. realcrazy

Still wish I could have snagged it...
But I remember seeing them years ago, so maybe one will pop up somewhere someday.
It wasn't like I was actually looking for one, just thought it would be a nice touch for my RR keys

I think its great that the majority of the money goes to his family,his daughter seemed very nice and emotional on mecum when talking about steve and his collections of car and memorabilia,i knew steve but never met his daughter.i met steve years ago at his home when he had his collections of the RTS cars ,the supercharger,daroo and a hemi cutaway motor and all the great memorabilia. And he was very accomidating even offered us something to eat or drink.He let us take our time as we looked over everything and asked questions and take pictuers.When we met up with steve at Chryslers at Carlisle Iin 2004 when he had the diamante there he let us behind the ropes to check out the diamante while he was filming a commercial for Chryslers at Carlisle he was so meticulous with his cars and memorabilia it was something else I remember there being socks over the diamante pedals so the wouldn't get messed up.It s been great to be able to bid on somethings I never imagined owning.Did I overpay for a few things YES but when youre biding on things you really want,emotion and getting into bidding wars its hard not too!Im glad I had a chance to get some things that are a part of steves collection now I can care for them too.Im glad i got to know and meet steve.And im very lucky to have a very,very understanding fiancé!

I started doing business with Steve probably around 1986 or so, when he would respond to my ads in Hemmings for NOS parts., well before he had most of the cars that were recently sold or auctioned, and given my proximity to his house, perhaps a half hour or so, I probably saw more of the development of this incredible collection in person than anyone, including delivering to him 30-40 items on the now completed auctions which he requested the first opportunity to purchase, which of course I recognized LOL. There were many conversations about his frustrations of being able to SHARE this collection with the Mopar faithful PROPERLY, hence the purchase of the building in California to display all of the items, plus provide storage for the car side of things. The two by-invitation Open Houses he hosted in 2005 and 2006 were of course a sensory overload for those in attendance, and the now-completed auctions certainly illustrate the extensive networking abilities he possessed to acquire all of these items over the course of 30+ years. Needless to say, we were very close, and I will of course miss him as a person, customer, and great ambassador for all of the Mopar hobby, but am also happy to see that his daughter Nicole and family and wife Alicia will be in a good place, yes, per the ASTOUNDING results of the auctions. I was quite fortunate to acquire a very few small pieces, but I am sure that many will be able to see some of these items in person, soon to reside in the collections of museums or private individuals.
