Definitely a 1000 point entry.

Nowadays, you canít be sure if all of the parts are original. That rear end might be aftermarket
Is the onscreen caption a warning or a challenge?

Re: anyone watching barrett jackson?

VERY disappointed in this years show. Like someone said earlier; way too many commercials! They even used side by side screens to show commercials within the 5 seconds it took to bring another car onto the stage. And most of these commercials were to promote their own shows on the same network. Really turned me off from viewing at all.

Reminded me of NASCAR paying for commercials promoting NASCAR while a live race was happening......meaning we are missing coverage of the live race while they are telling us to watch races!

Re: anyone watching barrett jackson?

Being a workin' stiff and still having dependents, I put myself on a realistic 20-25K budget as My son and I watched, and I'll tell ya... there were a few decent rides that cost WAY more to build. There was a "fake" Mopar was a fine car to have fun in, 22K if I recall. And a few trucks as well. This mostly in the "off" times.

Yes Gene, I saw quite a few cars that were surely losses for the builder. Some were probably more than twice as much to build as what they went for.

On Saturday the LS converted C1 and C2 Corvettes were going for mid $100s-400+k, that seems to be a trend.

Yep, the way she arches her back so acutely isn't just a coincidence.

Taking advantage of an opportunity to keep viewers....

The thing we can't lose sight of; BJ is still used car dealer full of car salesmen. They will go to whatever lengths necessary to make a bigger sale. They help define the stereotype.
