    Was the '47 pickup a stock color? If so, what color was it?

    Here's the official tally (gavel prices):

    #306 59 Lark wagon: $9,000
    #480 51 Starlight Coupe: $14,000
    #640 57 Golden Hawk: $51,000
    #749 47 Pickup: $76,000

    Aggregate: $150,000

    AND WE HAVE A WINNAH!

    Congratulations to [u]Anne F. Goodman</u> whose guess of $147,000 was a mere $3,000 off the mark!

    Thanks to everyone who played. We'll do it again sometime!


    I'm heading back over there later this morning to do some serious browsing among the vendor booths. It is supposed to rain today.

    I might go over to that "other" auction today, too... maybe I'll run into Denny and Frank.

    Non Stude content and Bobservation: Did you see the Packard woody wagon on the block last night? That really was a fine looking automobile! Also, while watching them move the cars in and out of the auction tent, I was struck by the number of them that emitted a puff of smoke from their very expensive tailpipes. I'm talking about some of those big-dollar cars, too. Admittedly I am cheap and not a big risk taker in the car department, but I'd sure want to take a prospective big dollar car out for a real drive before handing over the cash. I "presume" B-J certifies the mechanical condition but I'd want to see it in action rather than bid on it based on the eye candy.

    Tomorrow I'll heading over to Mesa for the Grand Canyon Chapter's meet. Though it is fantastic to wander among such a varied collection of classic cars at B-J, it'll be equally nice to be in the company of a bunch of Studebakers tomorrow! Later.

    Hi guys
    well the numbers show great results for Studebakers.
    You should all be chuffed that there are people out there prepared to 'come the heavy' with some serious cash. Weather they are of sound mind or not is another issue, but some people have money to spend and do not want to be bothered working all their days as a grease monkey in a garage like I do. For that sort of punter a well restored car is worth a premium.

    It was interesting that not one of those vehicles offered, went for a poor price.

    I think I will go back down to the garage and replace the rear brakes on my 63 Daytona Hardtop and press on rewardless.

    Grease Monkeys rule OK

    Have a good weekend bloke

    For the Golden Hawk, I like their comment, "No Expense Spared". But I see the door handle guards are installed upside-down!

    I guessed $47900 on the Hawk. Does it go to the closest bid without going over like The Price Is Right?

    51,000 for the Hawk
    9,900 for the Lark
    14,000 for the Bullet Nose
    150,900. Total

    Wow. I never dreamed the truck would go that high. Timing is everything. The morning numbers were going cheap and in many cases good buys.

    Wow! 76 thousand! Does that mean mine jumped up oh say 100 bucks or so? Wow 76 thousand. How much do you all think that would have gone for if it wasn't at Barrett Jackson? How about on ebay, a bit less I would guess
