64 gto that looked like Ray Charles did the bodywork on.
Felt like I was looking out into the Atlantic Ocean.

That's probably some of the best body work yer gonna see at Barret-Jackson!
LOL

I watched some of it tonight and some people are just paying stupid money for some really dumb cars.
The Roy Rogers "happy trails" 57 Chevy pickup- complete with life size cardboard cutouts& and a Roy Rogers lunch box & cap pistol set ! Problem is Roy never owned or drove the truck.LOL
Some one paid 28 grand for it.
Wait 'til the seller gets a call from the Roy Rogers estate. "Hey where's our cut?" LOL

The guy that got the truck would've done better buying the '65 goat clone car for 25K.

A seat for every sucker and a sucker for every seat.

I would say that $23-$25 grand isn't that much out of line if you compare the cost to restore something. Think about what it cost for a good paint job. And I mean a good paint job with PPG or a good German urethane paint. Materials alone are $3000 and up.

Tell me ya did not buy that truck! LOL

Yeah the candy coating on those kinds of M&M's don't come cheap.
On average a person will spend 8 to 10 grand to get the car painted "nice" and that's probably on the low side compared to the show quality stuff.
+ ya gotta pay the extra $$$$ for the Roy Rogers theme.
I think the Andy Divine "Nelly Belle" Jeep would fetch more money.

LOL

From what I have seen the past 2 days prices have come down closer to the normal zone. Your typical muscle cars from GM, Mopar, ford are in the range that it's not worth buying a junker and fixing it up.

That's real world economics.
A lot of people bidding on those cars are buying the nostalgia /image. Kinda a like a new pair of shoes.
They are not the types that will build/work on a car. Like most people,they just want to own and drive the car.
Perfectly understandable.
The auction is easy access to that finished product they desire.
A few years ago one of the guys at work came down with a serious case of "muscle car disease" and wanted a Chevelle SS real bad.
All the turn key finished cars were 20 to 30K+ and some of those were restored originals.
He complained it was too much to pay for an old car . I told him he would sink that much or more into anything less even if he did a lot of the work himself and scrounged for parts.He convinced himself he could do it cheaper so he went ahead and bought a beater with a wore out 350 for $8,500 and then proceeded to dump money into it (paid for a lot of work he thought he could do himself) until he had a 72 454 SS clone. Car turned out nice but by the time he was done he had 25K+ into it not counting the
original purchase price.New engine,new trans,new interior,new suspension,wheels & tires,
body work & custom paint. He found out why the turn key cars cost what they cost.
But he is happy with it and drives it occasionally.
Some wise guy once said "if it has wheels or tits it's gonna cost ya"
