After giving a presentation last weekend to the Minnesota Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America, I noticed that the interest in auctions seems to be growing even more. I'll credit that to the televised auctions that have been cropping up with increased frequency. From my experience this weekend, I can only assume that the interest is wide-spread, so I figured readers of this blog would be interested in the press release I just received and posted below:
Russo & Steele's Monterey sale will be aired on ESPN Classic beginning tomorrow, Nov. 20, at 10 pm EST. It looks like the auction has been cleverly broken up into themed episodes, including "fast Fords," "Super Shelbys," "Chevy Performance" and "Mopar Mania."
I've always advised people to attend a couple auctions before bidding just to see first-hand how it all works, and this is a good way to get a primer before buying a bidder's pass and raising your hand in the air. Of course, there's no replacement for being there in person, either.
If you check out this televised auction, let me know what you think!
