Barrett Jackson a Real Scam

I had the feeling that Barrette Jackson Auction was a Scam with those phony pump and dump prices for some of those silly over priced cars. Barrette Jackson kind of screwed themselves by airing that silly contest they are running on speed vision. Have you noticed that most of the teams are loosing money on most of the cars they bought and auction off? The looses would have been much greater if the teams had to pay commission and all the associated taxes. Once again it has been proven it is almost impossible to make money on a so-called classic cars. Buyers be aware of the Auction pump and dump whether itís at Barrett Jackson or any other auction.

Autopart...is that you? Looks like you?

Topic is interesting and has some merit, I'm shocked.

I think everyone is aware of how auction houses control their clientele and the action on the floor, unfortunately there is one born every minute and some of them have way to much money and time on their hands.

Nice to see you again, hope you find/found some work in TO.

What scam?


I figure that the show just shows you that it's not as easy to buy and sell classic cars as it seems....................not every car becomes more valuable overnight.


Auto-Part?..................hmmmmm, maybe

What Ponch said..How many people do you think actually made money on their cars at the auction? Maybe if they bought the car a few years back, parked it, resold at the auction and got lucky. The cars these guys were selling for the contest, sure there were some shills in the crowd helping them. It was a contest. Dan

know what? I think its just as bad as being a troll to suggest somebody (especially a fking new member) is a troll without having any proof.

Just by suggesting somebody is autopart gives him merit even if he's not here. Calling attention to these things only makes them worse, what, is there some prize for who can blurt it out first?

Chill.

Edited for content. Sorry Auto-Part, trolls aren't allowed. Your IP address gave you away again.
