70k isn't much of a markup really, someone got a great deal IMO.

Just goes to show you that it's way too early to consider Kappas for collectible value or investment. The coupe especially has real potential, but not auction worthy yet.

Listening tothe announcers talk about the shutting of the Pontiac brand just pisses me off all over again. Great looking cars, though, and auctioned for pretty much retail!

Why does that piss you off? just the whole thinking about the loss of the brand? the comments they made all seemed if not positive at least respectful and certainly accurate - maybe bordering on reverent?

The gavel price was $73k. Add the buyer's commission of 10% or 7.3k, and the buyer paid $80.3k for the pair.

Don't forget the seller commission due B-J also. 8% of 73000 is $5,840.

Buyer pays $80,300

Barrett-Jackson keeps $13,140

Seller receives $67, 160

For the record, B-J apportioned the selling price $55,000 for the coupe and $25,300 for the convertible.

Keep in mind, already collectable cars are selling at almost half what they sold for 4 years ago. You can get some classics very cheap now. Economy is still real bad. This is not a good time to judge the collect-ability of your kappa.

Absolutely the worst time to sell and the very best time to buy. I was watching the B-J show yesterday and noted numerous great deals, Chevelles, Camaros, heck even saw 2 AMX Javlins, all in the mid $20K range. Three years ago those same cars (at B-J) were going to 2x to 3x what they are going for today. I think the two SOLs for the $73K was a great deal.

My father and I always wanted to own a 57 Chevy Belair. Prices for a great restoration were $70K ++. Now, $25-35K will buy you a top shelf restored vehicle that probably has more than that in physical investment money, WITHOUT counting labor!!

You can buy four (4) Sols for that $73K price on eBay.....
The $73K price for those two car were way-over-price, IMHO..
The only thing those two cars had was the year they were built (2010 Vin #), sure its going to add a few more bucks for that, but they are exactly like the 2008-9s.....
