It just started about 10 min. ago on the Discovery channel if you're planning to watch.
Next in line, won't belong now.
Here it comes
Post 301 by me "Bids won't reach reserve. Sold later privately by Wayne."
Already past The 1 million reserve
$1,950,000 Sold Sold Sold
sold at 1,950,00
I am happy to be wrong on this.... it's about time a historic custom sold for real money...
1,950,000 just now.
Happy to see I was wrong and it sold for huge money.
Well it only took seconds for the bidding to sail past my bid of $625,500.00.
Just $50,00.00 shy of 2 million, truly amazing !
Its a good thing the bidding stopped shy of 2 million, because the bidder that bought the Merc, was just about out of money, in his cash box !
Did a member here buy it?
Stogy is closest.
Missed it by $1,000 bucks
Does Mecum slap on a fee too ?
Good job Stogy!
Now can you tell us what are tonight's Powerball numbers?
Oh hell yea - both buyer AND seller pay a fee.
It’s kinda like spicy chili, you pay for it going in, you pay for it going out.
10 percent for the buyer if they were in person, 12% if they were online.
Considering Wayne Carini is the seller, and the publicity that this car is bringing to Mecum, it wouldn't surprise me if the sellers fee has been waived. Or maybe they even paid him?
Too late to guess?
Stogy, "I won and all I got was this stupid T-shirt."
Paging @Stogy come get your prize !!!!
Happy it sold for big bucks , I still think it’s a deal in the big picture with all the history , stories and legends behind it .
The wealth-scale is a difficult thing for most to understand.
$50k shy of $2M sounds like a whole ton of money, but it is all about perspective and context.
Stogy is always a winner - hey, what is the prize that he won besides bragging rights - does his bid count if went over the actual selling price? but, when add in all of the Mecum fees actually went for a lot more
Well worth it IMO.
Looks like desotot was closest without going over at 1.8M. sold for $1.95 M
Wow $1,950,000 before fees … over $2M
A lot of these cars will be back on the auction block in the next few years…….
I have no beef on how anybody spends their money as after all it’s their money.
Most won’t be driven.
A lot of them are part of investment portfolios.
But what the heck - entertaining.
All my cars and trucks just went up 100 Grand
Well the buyer pays over 2 mill, right? Like 2,145,000..
The Aztec should have gone through again … imagine back to back, I believe would have received Barry’s asking price
