Just saw a 1929 Model A sell on a Barrett-Jackson auction for $97k. Looked like someone would be hard-pressed to find any parts on it that were from 1929.

Some men prefer the company of other men.

Only auction I've been to were it's hard to follow who has the bid and at what price plus be my guess alot of " money laundering "
As car bringing far more the market value yes this be possible to happen but impossible to happen car after car.

I visited the Barrett Jackson auction a few years ago and had a terrific time walking through the cars and watching the people. I saw the Batmobile for probably the 6th or 7th time in my life. Fatty Arbuckles car was there as were hundreds, maybe even thousands of other interesting cars. One room was full of old gasolina, quite a bit of neon and a lot of other shiny doodads I seldom get a chance to see. I bought souvenirs, joined the National Corvette Restorers Club and ate more than I should have. The next time I go to Phoenix, if the auction is once again in Scottsdale, I'll go back again. My only regret was that I'm not "well to do" enough to attend the auction room floor.

I hope that the trend continues!

Thinking about the old saying "if the top goes down, the price goes up" must make my 29 Roadster worth 110k... Of course this is a super rare "barn find" and they are only original once, so round that up to $125k and we have a deal! Any suckers...oops I meant discriminating collectors out there?

All fun aside, this had to be an anomaly where two large egos with larger wallets and little thought had a pissing contest, and I would also have to think alcohol was involved too. I've always enjoyed attending large high quality auctions if for no other reason than learning something, but I don't think that these car auctions have any more reality than television shows these days.

Just my opinion

There was a 1928 model A at the auction that hand model T parts (left hand brake lever) and looked good. Don't know what it sold for but nice to look at with a little history from the beginning of the A Fords and left over T parts.

Richard,

The early left hand brake Model A's did not use Model T brake levers. They were specifically Model A levers, just not used very long.

Howard: You can get on the BJ website and see all the cars and the price paid.
