Gotta love the automated subtitles. A '66 big block vette just hammered at $42,000. Wish I was there for that one.

I can't get over how long this auction has been. I've been tuning in a few afternoons whilst 'working' so I can see what's for sale. A few too many modern cars for my liking, I mean is a 2008 Audi A6 really a collectors car?

I'll try and watch today though.

I believe they have 3500 cars to sell, that is a lot to get through. One of these years I'll try to go.

I don't think that the folks who run the event really care what you choose to sell there, it's all about the commission from both ends on every vehicle sold.
A few years ago I think there were better quality vehicles with sellers having integrity and better ethics.
More recently there seems to be less integrity, questionable ethics, and a better chance of buying a rust bucket full of bondo and Krylon rebuilt drivetrains.
Yes, there are some very nice desirable vehicles being offered but the buyer needs to do their research and closely inspect anything they are interested in.
Some sellers are there to flip their crap and unload it on some unsuspecting drunken person with more dollars than sense.

My brother-in-law invited me last month to the one here in Kansas City. I was surprised at the amount of modern cars that went across the block as well. There were also quite a few cars (both modern and classic) that didn't sell.

I feel the guys that run this auction are not car guys. They are more like used car salespeople, just concerned about commissions.

Having been at Mecum for this, what troubled me was that the engine in this Stinger wasn’t the original engine. There was a note that the original block was included in the purchase. There was no indication of what shape the block was in, where the original heads were or much information dealing with its original engine & components. That being the case, I questioned the value of YS-074. Apparently that didn’t concern the bidders.

What, if anything do we know about the buyer and the plans for the car?

And who were the other bidders that offered 190K?

Seems there were at least 2 bidders willing to pay well for the Stinger.
