I just got in from the airport from Scottsdale this evening... Here is my report from the auction block seat A-51. Overall, the prices paid crossed the line from "overpaid" to "absurd". Hemis, vettes, GTO's went for 2x-3x value for people who are willing to take some time to find the right car. Much of the premium I will call the "Speed Channel" premium. People just wanted to win on national TV. As evidence, when Craig Jackson signed off for the viewers at home and there were still a good two hours of cars left, half the bidders on the stage and a good portion of the audience left. With respect to Ferraris... This is not a bad place to buy a Ferrari. THE BIDDERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THEM. The 246gts was very rough. The Blue 355 had 19k miles, cracked dash, chips, bolster wear, etc. It traded in the high 80's (less buyer's premium). The Pozzi Blue Barchetta with 100 miles (which I fell in love with and only made it half way through) traded at $251k. Actually a fair price given the Fiorano package, no miles, etc. Especially if you want blue. The challenge race car with an interesting provenance traded in the 80's (maybe low 90's--we will check). A fair price for a great race car. Once again... Barrett was a great place to sell cars, a terrible place to buy muscle, and an OK place to buy Scuderia. Questions and comments are welcomed.
