  • Hagerty analyzes Bring a Trailer

    Since we've been discussing collector-car auctions variants, here's an interesting article on Bring-a-Trailer:

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    BTW, BaT now has auctions ending 7 days a week.

    https://bringatrailer.com/2021/03/13...-day-schedule/

    They have been listing 60-70 cars a day....1400 or so a month. Selling on the weekends should enable them to increase their revenue by 40%...if they can fill all the slots and I'll bet they can.

      Thanks For this post, I'm considering the sale of my Speedster in the Spring and was wondering how that site would be.

        BaT has changed a lot over the past few years. I registered for an account in 2013 and have seen it go from a hobby for the owners to a full fledged business. More so since their purchase by Road and Track last year. I have bought 2 vehicles because of the links to eBay and Craigslist they used to have and won 3 auctions on the site. In the last couple of years they have definitely moved into the "high end" of the sales picture. with "deals" becoming the exception more so than the norm.
        Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

          It's been fun watching the "trailer" part of Bring a Trailer offerings evolve over the years from U-Haul behind a pickup to concours-bound haulers in some cases.

          Hard to think of a better marketplace to get the eyes of true enthusiasts on your ride. Studebakers get a lot of love over there.
