This will be my last posting about this years Barrett Jackson auction, but I saved the best for last. As you may or may not know, this years edition of BJ was not without controversy, with lot number 1277 at the center of the storm.

    It is cool to see that not everything they sell at Barrett Jackson is pushing BIG BUCKS, I would be inclined to go and picking up a nice bike or something.

    That may be true but $368,500 for a 56 Desoto Fireflite Convertible or $35,200 for a 76 Cadillac Seville Elvis gave his dentist, regardless of the 61K on the clock seems to be a bit much! Who is the buyer of that used Cadillac gonna sell it to? And make a profit? Hardly, IMHO.

    That seems like a good deal for a Pitts special

    I think your prices for Saturday include the buyer's premium. Also, I think they should have pulled the ambulance. Either prove it's the real deal or just another ambulance. This 'maybe it is, maybe it's not' approach is just going to hurt their reputation.
