Barret Jackson car auction

I was quickly flipping through the channels and stopped on the Barret Jacksonsite for just a few seconds.

I caught the end of the auction of a 1970 Cuda Convertable. Mustard yellow, nothing special as far as I could tell. Wooden handle shifter and so on.
It was sold for $160,000!
I was kind of stunned.

I mean, the car new was around $3200 or so.
Just amazing.

Me neighbor is a custom hot rod guy and he's selling one of his cars. He said he knows that if he took it to a Barret Jackson auction cars go for like 30% (+/- a few) more than selling it your own. People get wrapped up being in the whole auction atmosphere down there and it gets pretty crazy.

I've been to a few muscle car austions. Barrett is by far the biggest joke in the world. The have fake bidders to get the car way up there in price. Anyone that thinks that Barrett are real world prices are crazy. There are other good auction companies out there......plus Barrett had horrible fees!!!
