I don't watch B-J very much.
Personally, I like Mecum Auctions a lot better... the prices are more REALISTIC.

It IS sponsored by Ford. I wanted to watch Chip Miller's '53 Corvette go across. I remember when he bought it, but I don't have nat'l geo. channel. Screw B-J.

They aired a special on what was going to be auctioned off earlier in the week and had a spot on Old Reliable & Mr. MacNeish and a couple other cars.  Then you arent going to show it..  That my friends is BS...

Agreed--if your into drag racing , very important car for Camaros ( and my favorite of all time Bill Jenkins 67) Win on Sunday Sunday SSUNNDAYY ! sell on Monday, how many were probably sold because of that car--not to mention the R&D that was being done by Mr. Jenkins  in head design ? Piece of rolling history. Shame on the coverage.

Phil, that car was the foundation for Carlisle events. Chip bought it and AACA had no interest in an unrestored car, maybe '73. I'm sorry to see his family sell it. He got special permission from GM to buy matching serial number '03, the other half of the package.

another thing about the BJ coverage is they have it on too many different channels. a bunch of bunk if you ask me.

If you've noticed, the preferred coverage has been Ford for the last couple of years, as they are sponsored by Ford, or have been. I think the Fox network is to blame for some of it, and I hated the fact you can't see the auction total running in the top left corner of the screen (whereas it's clear as day on NG).

Fox apparently has missed the fact all week that a lot of people watch B-J, and hopefully those watching feel the same way we do about coverage, or lack of it. They can stick it. I waited for a couple of hours to get to Old Reliable, only to see it get skipped. Makes me wanna watch C-Span.

They showed the 2014 Z 28 get sold but only because it was for charity sold to Rick Hendrick for 650k. Hammer price.
