hi anybody at auction this weekend?.
I did watch it for a few minutes after I got out of work...
Prices are back up on early rods.
Trucks are still bringing great money too.
Seen the sale price go through the roof on a 427 Galaxie....
Watched the other night as 1 of my old 32's was goin thru. May not be HAMB friendly but was 1 hell of a car.
W o W ! Sold it @ Barrett/ Jackson in 2007 for 62500, it only pulled 36K Sum 1 took Bath !!
Watch it live on Youtube...........
Nope I built it and had less than 32 in it.
What's your Secret? I've never built a car for anything less than $30k!
Very nice looking Ride, BTW.
My secret is, everything done in house except the "Ron Mangus" leather guts and he's my brother from a different mudder., so he's cuts me a F A T deal
I agree someone must have needed the money real bad to sell that car for $36,000
I have said it before for the average guy who wants a hot rod and does not want to spend the next five years or more building it himself it's way cheaper just to buy a car!!!
I have many friends who have spent between $50,000 and $90,000 building their own car only to sell it for half that amount of money.
I know it's rewarding to build your own car but right now the costs out way the rewarding parts!!!
Just my opinion. Jimbo
Except I know if I bought an already built car for 40k I'd piddle around and end up spending 30 plus more just changing the minor things to the way I'd want it with one giant snowball!
