The Salem auction was not on the scale of the collector car auctions held in Phoenix but it was a great auction just the same. Curt and Susan put together a nice 70 car list of cars and trucks old and newer where a 1912 Buick Touring car was the top seller. Steve Harsch and I attended to cover the auction and ended up buying a Corvette and a Mercedes. That was entirely unintended but the cars represented were good looking cars and the prices were respectable.
The auction brought a 42% sell through which is also respectable. The venue was terrific and packed with many bidders on hand. This was probably owing to the 5000 hits they got on their web site in January alone. petersencollectorcars.com Check it out as you plan for your participation in their next “Local” collector car auction coming up in on July 11th at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Roseburg, part of the “Graffiti Weekend Event.” These local auctions are just great because they are easy to get too, fun and some great cars cross the block. See you next time.
