    Watched Barrett Jackson

    I watched the Barrett Jackson Fall Auction in Scottsdale yesterday and really never saw many vehicles that I would have been interested in. Maybe some better ones today and tomorrow. And the bidding wasn't really much except for that one car that was auctioned off for charity and that Brock drove in some of his wild videos. It brought 200K but most of the cars that sold were in the $8k to $20K range.

    Not really surprising Ron as the lower cars always cross the block early in the auction.

    Is the auction on TV or online?

    John,

    This one is on TV with a limited amount of people allowed inside. There should be some better vehicles crossing the block today.

    What time and channel. I'm not finding it.

    But then I'm drunk already.

    Well they had some much better vehicles on yesterday but the bidding still seemed low to me. Today is the final day and they have some nice vehicles coming up today. There was a 1965 Mercury Marauder that really surprised me at what it brought yesterday and so were the commentators. Also today it will be on a different channel. I think it is the History channel.

    FYI is the channel "brand". Not sure what your number would be.

    Okay, I'm nice and drunk now and watching it.

    My god, that place is mostly empty when compared to the spring auction

    They had to practice social distancing in order to even have anyone in there. Some nice cars were sold and some I thought brought more than they should have but also some went for less than I expected. The Ford GT went for 1.1 Million which I wasn't to surprised about. The Hemi cars seem to be down the last year or so.
