    I can;t agree with you guys more!Since those auctions came on,Iam seeing people trying to sell 4 door sedans with 6 cylinders for the price of what a musclecar was selling for used just a few years ago.The realistic prices are a thing of the passt.FISHMANJOE

    Barret Jackson has done more harm to the "average Joe" than they will ever know. They don't care, they are raking in the money on the sell and buy side.
