I would think He got a lot of these Dirt Cheap. Don't forget they were likely purchased before the Boom in Collector Cars. I did see a nice 57 Retractable in the Pictures. It reminds Me of that other Auction last Year where there were some Cars with like 7 Original Miles. Parked when they were new unsold Inventory. Google "Peter Max Corvettes" for another Interesting Car related Auction. Crazy what some People do.

The on line auction catalog was the best I've ever seen, multiple pictures of each car. BJ could learn a lot from this auction company.

My wife says if a car comes in, one has to go. And I really only have one classic car.

I looked at the prices the cars sold at - seemed like crazy high prices to me.

My Wife said I could buy another Car as long as I buy Her a NEW One. Not happening.

My wife never cared how many cars I owned as long as she could drive them, in fact for my 36th birthday in 1978 she bought me a 81,000 mile original 56 Ford Crown Vic glass top. In 1985 for our 10 anniversary I  repaid the favor and bought her, her dream house. (I sold 9 of my 12 cars to pay for the house) Marriage is like anything else, know what your getting into before you leap. When it's right it's really right.
