In part 1 on this topic, I discussed the crazy prices that some cars are
commanding at car auctions. Paying north of one million dollars for a car that
didn’t even pass the four thousand dollar mark back in 1970 seems crazy, but it
happened. And the “trickle-down effect” took hold on many private sellers, thinking
with the mindset that their clapped out shell was worth a chunk of change. The
average guy would nearly be forced into buying a project, if anything at all,
because of the cost of even a shell. So, I posed the question “Is there an
upside?” to the auction madness?
Just like most things in life, having a little more than you currently have is never a bad desire. Having seconds on desert; some extra time on the weekend before the work week starts again; a little extra money to buy something. The last one always seems to come into play, and it’s been highlighted more in the last decade in the automotive market than ever before.
