I understand that, that's the reason I put down (2010 Vin#) Those cars are classified as 2010 cars.... (I shouldn't have use the word "Build") My car is a 2009 and built date is 7/08..... Thank you for the correction....

If I recall correctly, it was some older guy for $73K before the 10% buyer fee, tax, and licence.

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.....

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.

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.

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?
