  • Soap Opera at Barrett-Jackson

    Apparently the bidder credentials process needs a little work at Barrett-Jackson. Some Jersey Shore wannabe bid $700K on a Bugatti Veyron and then backed out of the deal. Needless to say Barrett-Jackson booted the guy out as they don't have a sense of humor when it involves money.

    According to a report I saw on Speed, not only did they boot the guy, but Mr. Jackson stepped in to buy the car at the $700K price as none of the other bidders were willing to meet it.
    Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park.

        Standup move by Craig Jackson.... heck, not many auction house owners have the financial wherewithal to even do such a thing nowadays.

          If you know much about him... that's a first.

          IIRC,... it has been two years since I read it last, but legally, the consignment agreement made the car Mr. Jackson's property as soon as the bidding started. With No-Reserve, the bidders are actually purchasing the cars from Barrett-Jackson. ...So big of him to buy it. Believe me, he didn't "buy it" to be a nice guy or to help anyone out...

            It boggles my mind that people actually watch car auctions on tv.

              I watch just to see some of the cars I used to own and sold dirt cheap and how much time, effort,and love goes into restoring them...........I don't like professional restorations but I like the first couple of days and the very last couple of hours when you see the cars that were actually restored by people with their own hands and friends and drive the living crap out of them like I did my 40 Ford Pickup with a 265 Chevy in it.........There may still be a picture of it visiting Camp and Brew very early one mornig waking Glenn and the guys up outside their luxury accomadations drinking beer that I couldn't drink but paid for..................lol..................WOW!! I'm in the way back machine now!!!!!!!

                  No pictures, but I was there that morning. First (and only) time we ever met face to face. Hope to reenact that meeting sometime.

                    I try not to watch it because once I start I generally can't stop. I LOVE classic cars and I love seeing what cars sell for. It amazes me that a '69 Mustang with original everything is worth 2-3X as much as a similar condition car with the wrong engine or with chrome under the hood or whatever. I have heard people say that nobody could ever spend the money won in a lottery. I could. At the car auctions...

                        I agree. Different strokes..... Personally, I don't watch it because I can't stand listening to auctioneers. Street cars, even hot rods, never have turned me on like actual race cars.

                        But, I like watching golf, so I won't criticize those who watch car auctions.

                              I watch once in awhile, when there aren't any reruns of poker tournaments on. But there almost always are.
