I record them and then FF through a lot of it.
Seemed to be 1/2 commercials today, but there were a few Mopars.
Some interesting cars to come...

Some ridiculous money paid for some of those cars/trucks last night. I do have to say that it's nice to not listen to the B-J broadcasting crew, though. Also won't miss Steve Davis lecturing the crowd that they haven't bid a car up enough.

I enjoyed hearing Frank Mecum arguing with sellers about removing their reserves.

I watched last evening , I enjoy it! I like seeing some of the rare stuff like the 51? burgundy Studebaker . It was cool seeing the black 92 D150 short bed /standard cab , nice truck ! a lot like mine only mines 2WD , you just don't see that many of them... I tend to hold on to my vehicles... my Dart I've had for almost 40 years and my D150 almost 30 as I bought it new, I know life styles change, finances etc. but I look at a lot of the vehicles on there and think " if I owned it I would never sell it ".

If I'm channel surfing and I see Mecum or B-J I always stop to see what's rolling by. What "car guy" doesn't like to look at beautiful cars?

Some of you guys are wound a little too tight and need to relax. If the announcers bug you that much just turn down the volume....

Wound too tight because I prefer this announcer crew to the old one? shruggy I still watched B-J every year. I just happen to prefer Mecum. I find Steve Davis to be obnoxious, but it never kept me from watching.

I enjoy going to check out the Mecum auctions when near me in fall and I drive down to Indy to see their auction in May.
The one here near Chicago is no great shakes with around 1000 cars, but Indy is pretty incredible with 2000 cars. Kissimmee is even bigger so it must be overwhelming attending it!
You see cars you never see except at museums at their big auctions.
I’ll sometimes take a break when I attend and sit and watch the bidding and stage antics but can only take that for so long. I can check the results later to see what the cars bid up to!
If nothing else, in winter there’s not much better to do than watch the auctions…

I was there on Thursday and watched some good buys and some stupid buys, they always get worse as the day goes along and people imbibe. Lots of nice cars there, and my favorite 69 Dart Swinger of all time is there, I wanted to check it out in Steven Juliano's collection in 2004 but he had just sold it to buy the building his collection was in. Once again I cannot afford it, but got to check it out closely this time! boogie Of course right behind it was the yellow Hemi Dart, I could have stayed in that room all day! But it IS the coolest car show you will ever attend with 3,000 cars of every type good and bad, and I highly recommend going down to Florida in the winter to see it! The car I brought down for a client goes tonight, T193... drive

The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

A 1974 318 auto challenger, nothing too special, brought $38,500? Really?


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

I just pay the five bucks or whatever for motortrend and see no commercials. Worth every penny to get all that content.


I want my fair share

In my case, it's not only the commercials I FF through but the endless Corvettes, Tri-Fives and Camaros et all.

Some strong prices, the survivor 70 Bee 383 car pulled big money. Some nice MoPars from a collection will be interesting to watch along with some really rare C1 Corvettes. Loved the 67 Hemi R/T that went for around $110K, nice looking car.
