I wish that with what that car has on it for specials, one offs and beyond top shelf, you could duplicate that build. You don't have to like all of what Boyd's guys did, they usually did have good pieces in a car. Some day I'll get brave and figure out what mine cost to build - and I might find that I exceeded even that figure on my '31 killmyretirementfundmobile.

And that current photo at the top of my header - shows the contrasting colors

MARTINSR Times are different than a few years ago, that is a steal as far as I'm concerned. To have a car like that built from a rough old car would be far more in my neck of the woods.

Good point Sam. How about all the tools and space required to be a custom builder jack of all trades? Now you need to be in the business because of all those extra expenses. Sometimes things need to be farmed/subbed out. Truth be known, it happens all the time.

I've always favored a contrasting color from the body too. But this build was so shaved and sterile everywhere else, the red interior seemed to serve that style.

The Dan Woods "Milk Truck", went for $77k as a pure collectable you can't drive anywhere. The examples of this go on and on.

I watched many vehicles past through that were pretty good buys compared to dollars invested, raw cost to build and time never accounted for.

Guys, please keep in mind the majority of the vehicles at BJ are already considered sold as they have no reserve at this auction, they are committed. If someone bids, it is gone. So I or anyone else is not going to help the cause by posting here in this case. I was there for the opening "Pomp & Circumstance" where they disclosed that only 18 out of all the vehicles present have a reserve and they are very high-end collectables that few of us will even consider, maybe dream of though. There other thing they do is make a very grand tribute to our veterans that is quite emotionally striking. BJ also donates a significant chunk to charity, in the millions.

I have attended this event many times over the years and because of the diversity, there is something for everyone to see regardless of individual taste.

I simply want to share some of the things I've seen. It is what I do, take pictrures, I'm a photographer. These shots are just that, snaps shots, not examples of my best work. The environment at BJ just won't allow good work to come forth easily and I do feel at risk by posting sub par content, yet still share for those that cannot be there. Dust, barricades, people, poor light, and cramped spaces are just some of the obstacles.

So please enjoy. I do find it interesting what others see within the image I've captured through the lens.

I'm a little late to the thread... sorry.

Hey Dave, I went to the opening night Gala as well. Not exactly my crowd but I had fun. Been working all week but I plan on making it out to BJA for Saturday and Sunday. I know your pain when it comes to the shots, I've had to edit dust spots and deal with harsh flash from poor lighting under the tent.

I'm by no means a professional photographer, but I am there with my media outlet, which I would post the url to, but don't want to violate the advertising guidelines here on the board. If you see me, don't be afraid to say hi to a fellow hotrodder I'm hard to miss: I'm a young guy about 6', with long hair and a big beard.

dinger I like following the auctions. I get a perverse sense of glee when I see a rich dude lose his butt on a high dollar purchase from a frenzied purchase of the "in" car of a few years back. Hemi's are losing again, Camaros and Chevelles seem to be gaining again, what happened to the true classics of yesteryear, The Bugattis, Deusenbergs, the hand built cars? Cars that will never touch the road other than to be pushed into a collection of cars. You can't give a Ferrari away in todays market, comparing prices from a few years back. It's interesting. Coddington seems to be at a high again. Keep us posted, please.
