    I heard an interesting story yesterday, don't know if it is true. There was an older Lincoln, from the description, early to mid 60's for sale there, and the gentleman that actually owned the car was there with title in hand. Supposedly there was some discrepency with service work done on the car, and it was never returned to the owner. Maybe this is just an aAmerican legend story, but it would be nice to know if it is true or not.

    Well, I guess that's all.

    No late breaking stories about a local who bought a car and found...

    Or a transporter that can now afford a new truck?

    Or how a kid wet his pants waiting in line at the outhouse?

    Nothing new to report, but searching for "lambrecht" on the evil auction site, whose name we do not speak, is entertaining...
  8. You do realize you have always been able to say Ebay? In fact, there is now an Ebay link section.

    Yeah $50 for a bidder card and $100 for a bidder card with auction poster is quite silly.
  10. yes a look through the "Salvage section" produced one Lambreath car......and that guy up in Fall River sure has had some awhile.....time to lower the price - don't ya think ???

    I guess no one here bought one? Sure would be interesting to see the progress someone makes trying to get one of those outside cars started and running/driving.

I've been told the old guy is close to dead and will be coming up for sale somewhat soon... My buddie went to the Lambrecht one and heard it there. I'm actually serious and not stiring the shit pot. Can anyone chiem in?

    the hobby is going to get a big and i mean a very big boost from the lambrecht auction.

    since this auction was broadcast worldwide and huge media attention and i am sure huge talk in the auction industry.

    everytime someone has any type of collection or junk yard a auction will take place so alot more cars will get into the hobby vs going to the crusher and the crusher is the devil us car guys have to deal with

    so the lambrecht auction is a turning point for our hobby

    so i will give a compliment to vanderbrink auctions and the lambrechts for moving the hobby forward

    I'm unconvinced.

    An oildrum of "media attention" was poured onto the antique market. American Pickers has driven the price of antiques up.

    The more attention the hobby gets, the more demand for product. However, supply of vintage automobiles is static. Demand already outpaces the supply- this will only heat the market up.

    From EMS's perspective, this is great - because it will mean more panels will be sold. The vendors will surely benefit.

    Consumers, however - the guys buying the cars - will not.

    Barn Finds are already the stuff of urban legend, the next big thing will be the "eccentric's auction"

    I guess you don't remember the classic car price boom of the late '80s.

    When those prices came crashing down ( because apparently they were hyped up too ) it did lots of damage to "our hobby".

    Taking lots of specialists, and specialist suppliers like yourself, down with it.

    Usually, the only people that gain from chaos are the ones that created it...

    Does anyone have first hand stories of buyers remorse? Outrageous prices for not nice or valuable cars. Oct. 12 evening, I can't believe the giveaways at the Meechum auction Chicago/Shaumburg Illinois. I guess all the auction money was spent at the Lambrecht aution. I will be watching the 4 Hemi's under glass sell tomorrow. 1 Mil.......2Mil? Those will bring out the $$$$$!

    I like your positive thing i see out of this is MOST people see my old cars as junk and me as trailer trash for driving them. Every one had the opportunity to see and hear about the old cars and their inflated values. It makes my line up of parts cars and project cars worth more than $200 a ton. My stomach turns evey time a "government" passes a law to crush/rid YOUR property of junk.

    Went to a auction last week that had over 100 30's-50's cars and the highest I saw was $325 for a 1955 Chevy BelAire 4 door.The rest sold in the $200-225 range.
    It was a salvage yard where the owner had died. They had crushed out over 500 cars before someone convinced the family to hold a auction.
    I dont believe the theory this is a major turning point.There may be other auctions with special circumstances i.e. Hartung and Lambrecht but the majority of rusty car hulks saved for years will bring nominal bidding.The unique collections have been spikes in the price charts for years.
