The BJ coverage will get better.  Due to the fact that Speed went away, the Fox Business and FS1 were the best they had to offer for 2014.  I found out after talking to personnel at BJ that the coverage exploded the ratings so next year will be better and more consistent.  Trouble with most of the Mecum cars is "The Bid Goes On."  70% of the cars do not sell. 

What I have positive to say about BJ now is they are trying to clean up all of the fakes that come to auction.  They have hired automotive specialists to do inspections before the cars go across the block, and that's a good thing.

 Yah Jerry, I did pick up on the fact that they had specialists on hand.  And actually  saw you on TV.  Good job!

Yep, can't say the same for other auctions.  Have a hot mess law suit getting ready to blast off shortly.  Stay tuned.  Fake black Z28, hidden vin numbers ground out, incorrect trim tag, restamped drive train and more.  All the best!
