  1. I am in a fairly unique position since about 80% of the cars I am representing are other peoples cars versus cars I have bought to resell. Every time I get a call my ultimate goal is to sell the car to the caller. I don’t get paid until I sell the car, and even if its my car that really is still the case. I work hard to research the market for each car I am selling before setting an asking price. I always try to set a reasonable asking price and leave it up to the buyer to make an offer they are comfortable with. sometimes I get guys calling it seems simply to argue with me
  2. I don’t think that’s true anymore, that’s one thing the internet has changed-old cars are a lot more of a liquid asset than they used to be. Same with real estate-at least currently. Could be a function of low interest rates too though. every car has what I call a spot market-what you can get for it today. Of course that’s lower than it’s peak value normally-unless its a real hot car that touches off a bidding war no matter where or when it appears. which is why there are deals to be had if one pays attention and takes the time to go. in a normal year there’s an event or auction ju
  3. I’m sorry this is a lot like saying “ hey I know you were really smart buying that Tesla stock in March for 200 and it’s now at 625 but you only paid 200 so I’ll give you 250” what someone paid has little to no bearing on what something is worth. And let’s be honest pretty much everyone in this hobby tries to get full market value when selling a car-this isn’t an “evil dealer” thing. All you have to do is check out the prices in the car corral at Hershey to realize that.
  4. I am looking for a chassis, preferably rolling with wheels. any Auburn 12 parts welcome
  5. I have clients looking for 12 Cylinder Auburns- any body style will do! Also I have a personal need for an Auburn 12 Chassis if anyone has one laying idly about.
  6. I have a client looking for a Kissel Gold Bug Speedster if anyone wants to part with one.
  7. being a Lancia guy I was intrigued by this car, having always wanted a Pre War Lancia. It was a lot smaller in person that i expected it to be. It certainly did well at the sale. cant wait to see it restored and on the show circuit someday.

  11. so sorry for your loss Matt. He sounds like a true renaissance man who lived life to the fullest. The best thing about this hobby is the wonderful people who collect these old riggs, and the lifelong friendships formed as a result of that. They live on in many ways, including the cars they restored or took care of, which will outlive all of us.
