    Yeah I registered online and all they showed was the plates. I didn't hit the participate button though. I was afraid I might buy something on accident. ha ha I would much rather be there in person but I had to "work" today.... well at least I am at work.

    Ya, if you push participate/join icon you can watch the items sell as they go. You have to physically push the big green bid icon to bid on items. you can't miss that!

    The license plates are selling for crazy money, west virginia sold for $26,000 too.

    I said project-worthy. Did you really expect to find perfect,rust-free cars stored in a dirt-floor pole barn in the middle of Illinois????

    Fair enough. But I'm pretty sure you said the "`32 sedans . . . were actually pretty solid" and I said you must not have looked very close because one certainly was not. The point was, none of the cars, or at least the Fords, or the bikes, at least the Harleys and Indians, or the speed parts, were really anything special, or in very good shape, and that prices will probably be well above market value for most of the stuff. I think the results so far bear that out. Plus, in addition to the bid price, you have the 15% buyer fee for vehicles, and the 15% buyer fee plus 9.25% sales tax on everything else. So the guy who bought the license plates actually ends up with a bill for $32,305. Either that's seriously f'ed up, or I'm just clueless. If it looks good to you, by all means check it out. But I'm about 15 minutes from the place and I'm going to spend the weekend working on projects rather than bother with the auction.

    You must not know what a Cabriolet is,because it sure didn`t look like a cut-up coupe to me.

    SO FOMOCOPOWER YOU ARE SAYING THAT 36 CABRIOLET THE BLUE ONE THAT WAS SITTING ON ITS FRAME AND THE FRAME SITTING ON A MODEL A ROLLING CHASSIS OR THATS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE. THAT WAS A ORIGINAL CUT REAR COWL PANEL IF IT WAS I WOULD NOT BUY THAT CAR IF IT CAME LIKE THAT NEW. IF IT GOES FOR MORE THAN $2000.00 SOMEONE NEEDS THERE HEAD EXAMINED. I STILL THINK IT WAS A COUPE AT ONE TIME AND CUT WITH A HACKSAW AND MAYBE WITH A DULL ONE AT THAT. Knuck From Indiana.

    Edelbrock heads they listed incorrectly as 21 stud went for $400. Probably would have gone for a lot more if anyone bothered to count the holes. '32 grilles went for $1500, $1700, $1600 and $900. Plus 24.25% in taxes and fees.

    Car prices are actually pretty reasonable considering what the other stuff sold for. $6k or so for A coupes. Nicer Deuce tudor just sold for $16k.

    I think I just saw my life flash before my eyes.

    If i remember correctly, $9750.

    I thought that most of the cars sold for a fair price for both the seller and the buyers. Seller got a fair price and the buyers didn't overpaid except on a few of them.

    i agree that edsel for 200 was to cheap. By the time i realize no one else was going to bid, i tried getting to the other screen to bid but they pulled the hammer on me.

    Second best deal of the day was a '41 Continental coupe with unspecified chassis and body modifications that went for only $2500 + fees. Great opportunity to make a classy street rod.

    Two cars got pulled at the last minute - a nice '37 slantback Ford tudor with 27k miles, and a Model A tudor body on a rolling chassis. I followed all the car sales online and they skipped right past them - last two cars on the list. Wonder what happened?

    And $1K each for NOS '37 Ford grilles??? geez...
