Particularly at 3X speed.

 

MotorTrend app now comes in 3 versions: regular (with advts), low lead (some advts), and super (no advts).

How many Mustangs this year?

Enough of them that at 15-50k each they will exceed the cost of one bullitt.

NBC Sports network had 5 hrs of coverage on Sunday night, saw maybe 2 hrs before I fell asleep.  Did get to see some of the vintage drag cars go across the block.  Some brought decent money.

 

This was Mecum’s auction I was watching, it did it’s usual job of helping me fall asleep.  Much more predictable than counting sheep.

You could bone up on some Pontiac Engine specifications.

I would love to take my 1964 Chrysler Imperial Crown to an auction, but I suck at getting these old car running well enough to make it on and off the stage.  Maybe I need as much money as Don Draper (Mad Men).

VW Type 1's seem to be getting their just reward. Gave that 62 series 62 Cad a run for it's money.

The 1957 Cadillac de ville with the Chevy engine was a disappointment, furthermore the comment by Steve Magnante saying with that Chevrolet engine the Cadillac will be more reliable was a real Cadillac put down. I'll take the 365 Caddie with it's dual Coupling 4 speed Hydra-Matic any day!!!

The owner of the Champion Spark Plug company thought a Cord looked 'naked' without exposed freestanding headlights so one was made for him.

A '79 LTD lacked style in the first place, and those silly modifications only make it look worse.  I don't care that it appeared in National Lampoon's movie, 'Vacation' and wouldn't give anyone a nickel for it.

The movie is a comedy for people with a sense of humor which obviously doesn't include you. Professional movie critics liked it too. From Wikipedia:

 

The film was a box-office hit, earning more than $60 million in the U.S. with an estimated budget of $15 million, and received positive reviews from critics. As a result of its success, four sequels have been produced: European Vacation (1985), Christmas Vacation (1989), Vegas Vacation (1997), and most recently, Vacation (2015) which serves as both a reboot and a continuation. In 2000, readers of Total Film voted it the 46th greatest comedy film of all time.[3] It continues to be a cult film and a staple on cable television.

I have no idea where you got the idea I don't like Vacation, although Animal House is still my favorite of all the National Lampoon full length movies.  

 

No 1985 full-size Ford is worth $28K, regardless of its prominence; especially a CLONE like the one you linked!!

There are always dozens of cars that sell for a lot more than they're worth at BJ auctions. There was a '50s VW bug that sold for over $40k....

That's the prime reason B-J is so entertaining to many, just to see what insane prices some vehicles command.   

 

That '50's VW Beetle was a bargain compared to the 23-window Type 2 that sold there for over $200K a few years ago.

Great entertainment. Tape it and then watch in FF until something nice comes along. Or look for humor: A nice looking ‘55 Crown Victoria was was quest up outside, waiting it’s turn on the block. As the show went to a commercial, the overhead camera showed the Ford puking its guts out (coolant) on the pavement- someone put a rug down to collect the flow. I guess idling for an extended period in the Arizona warmth was too much for its cooling system.
