    I was surprised to find not much results on the net. One article stated 2 million in sales on day 1 with at least 20,000 people. The day 2 cars were the least valuable cars but it will be interesting to see the total sales.

    they were broadcasting the auction m ore or less live, not filming for top gear. they've been re airing it already. I had relatives that live near by calling me all morning the first day about how ridiculous the roads were jammed with people.

    Thanks for posting the photos :)
  4. I was there Friday to dream a little. Some stuff could be really nice it was sad to see some of these "NEW" cars that had rotted away to nothing.

    Thanks for the photos and perspective. I really dig your camper.
  7. Love your camper Gary! Wife thought the kitchen/dining area was spot on.
  8. Those wings on the camper are priceless!
  9. thanks for posting and the picture taking....hope it was good camping weather....
  10. Great pics, wish I coulda been there myself. Did you see any good deals go down? I watched it on tv and with all the hype, it sure looked like quite a few of the winning bidders took it in the shorts.

    I just can't see the value in the Cameo. What would you do with it? If you fix the roof, it's no longer original. I can't see spending that much to stick it in a museum just because it has no miles on it. I see stupid money spent every year at Barrett Jackson, but this one makes the least amount of sense to me.

    Thanks for sharing Gary; really good stuff there. That Mercury wagon would look real nice towing the Shasta.

  16. Some of the proceeds are going to Wounded Warrior Fund. Looks like a bunch of bidders got what they wanted for their money and a bunch of soldier and their families will get what they need and the Lambrecht family gets my gratitude. Being there was pretty coo, only took 40 minute up and 40 back home. well worth it. I got lots of shots too but these tell the story well, thanks for the post!

    Do you mean the proceeds on everything are going to charity? First I've heard of that. I'm surprised it wasn't hyped more - I watched the live feed most of Sunday and didn't hear it. Should solve their tax issues, at least.

    Thanks for adding this

    HaHa thats exactly why I got so many pics of it. My post on FB says "This wagon was SCREAMING at me to pull my camper" It would be perfect

    That is so cool. I never heard any of this

    Feel free to post your pics here if you want. Id like to see them

    Wait.......with all the months of endless hype on this auction, never once was there a mention of ANY of the proceeds going to Wounded Warrior you have a credible source for that information ???
  21. I wish I'd taken a picture of the huge sign for proof but I didn't. Hope someone else did. I will amend my comment by saying that the sign mentioned proceeds going to Wounded Warriors just in case my facts are wrong. Don't shoot the messenger, I'm not making it up. It is possible that I was confusing it with a campaign currently under way by Proxy Bid and that the sign, which , admittedly, I just glanced at briefly, was in reference to this:

    Proxy Bid was present at the auction and handled on line bidding so one way or another, the soldiers will benefit. I'lm removing the part about the family' in my first reply.

    hot-rod roadster, forgot to say thanks for posting these great shots.

  22. Why? This 57 4-door sold for $37,500 not running, with 47,000 miles on it and no telling what the floors look like. Even if they were pleased as punch with their purchase, any reasonable man would agree they got took.
    Looking at some of the later results though it looks like there were some deals to be had after the initial frenzy died down. Sure woulda loved to get that brand new, baby blue 1960 Chevy Apache pickup but at $46,000 out of my league.

    Ok......your link is for an upcoming auction 20 Oct.......for an auction by Knowles Auction Co......benefiting Operation Long Road Home.
    Don't think that has anything to do with an auction held 28-29 Vanderbrink Auction Co........benefiting the family and future heirs of Mr. Mrs. Ray Lambrecht.

    So have $2 million in proceeds from an auction......and you have a tax rate of 50 still net $1 million. If you give the entire $2 million in proceeds to Wounded Warrior net ZERO......explain what I am missing.

    Black one went for $7,000, had terrible floors and a few other issues. White one went for $7,500. I bid on both but didn't get them. Stupid money for condition they were in if you asked me but what are they worth? What we are willing to pay, I guess.

    Thanks for the photos. Did anyone take any photos, (or look at), of the underside of the Cameo, or any of the other new mid - late 50's Chevy trucks? I'm trying to find out what color the underside of my 55 Cameo's cab is supposed to be.
