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.

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.

Cotterpins truck looks good, BUT,TOO MUCH RED for me,would look better (my opinion) with Vanilla Leather interior...

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.

Apologies accepted. Now publicly too.
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.

|lakeroadster||Personnally I found the OP post interesting. It's a Hot Rod, this is Hotrodders. Why sucker punch the guy for posting, even if he is just trying to sell the car|

|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.|

H'mm I have less than 5,000 in my build but then if I had to pay the labor it would be considerably higher..If I were to sell it I might make 50 cents an hour on it but I am having fun anyway and isn't that why we do this..??? And then again I am not about to buy something that I can make for myself and I did make pretty good doing things for those who either did not know how or did not want to if you get my drift. It is nice to look at some of the builds and maybe steal an idea but no I am not paying that kind of price..
