I checked out the Classic Car Show & Auction in Atlantic City this past weekend. There were some nice rides, but I’m not sure it was worth 300 clicks on the odometer to see them. The massive floor was filled with varying years, countries of origin, and levels of collectibility, but Detroit definitely reigned supreme. Unfortunately, this was one of those parties where the bouncer let anybody and everybody through the door. The website proudly touts the lowest buyer and seller rates in the country and it really showed based on the stragglers littering the floor. I actually saw an ’07 Buick Lucerne at one point. My second quibble centered on air quality. Yes, I said air quality. When you have 100,000 square feet full of cars running back and forth to the auction block, its probably a good idea to make sure proper ventilation is accounted for. I nearly passed out from all the fumes and definitely couldn’t read fine print for a good 2 or 3 hours. Survey says…next year will not get a repeat visit.
Best news of the day…my newfound interest and exploration into side view mirrors. I even made a slideshow about it.
