1972 Oldsmobile 442 W30 Convertible

A 1972 Oldsmobile 442 W30 Convertible like this one should bring six figures for sure. Let’s watch to see what this one will do late Friday night. Oh, man. It sold for $65,000. Well bought. This was a numbers matching car. Must not be an Oldsmobile crowd.

 

The reason we are here in Scottsdale this week is to take the temperature of the current collector car market. We believe that the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale has the power to set the stage for an upward trend in collector car prices. Whatever happens here in Scottsdale this week may set the tone for an upward trend in collector car sales for the rest of the year.

The 44th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction is one of America’s great events. The history, the spectacle, the fervor for classic American steel is intoxicating as the staccato of the auctioneers voice pounds out a cadence that delights the crowd. Every three to five minutes history is made. What we will be watching for are quantifiable numbers which will tell us if collector car prices will go up this year. If average prices on collector cars increase here at the Barrett-Jackson it will most likely happen all across America by this spring.

The Saturday edition of the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Auction will be the best show in the country. Click here to review the auction action as Cars On Line covers the world’s largest collector car auction.
