    Bill, if you can keep an eye on the '67 gold Riv. to see what it goes for, T19. Also, I'm really interested in the black '67 Riv GS, an older resto, F229. I'm not really excited by the x-frame for my type of use but that car looks sharp and looks to be in great shape. I was almost thinking about trying to bid but the way they have the internet and phone bidding to qualify really throws me for a loop. Too many big hoops to jump through. If it goes for anything under $30K I'm not going to be happy.

    Is the auction live streamed somewhere?

    Hey Bill you gotta let us know which cars you were driving across the block too.

    Mike, the auction is live streamed from the Mecum home page. You can also check prices about 30 minutes after the car goes across the block on the Mecum site. You just have to create an id and login.

    Good info. I just checked and I missed the first Riv by a few minutes. I checked in at T23. I would have liked to see how the bids went.

    Watched a little bit yesterday, saw a seventy something Matador with 22 actual miles!
    Bid only got up to 14k, way below reserve.
    Rare does not make valuable like some people think. :eek:

    I will be up there in Indiana in two weeks (June 1st) for the AACA grand national show at the Auction site in Auburn. Should be a great show. Come on by if you can. I will be there with the 66 Skylark, and a good friend will be there with a 65 GS .

    Thanks guys.....what a busy day!Did not have much time to check out all the Buicks.....that group of 30's-40's cars brought some good $$......Yeah.....22,000 original miles on that Givenchy Edition Lincoln....super nice ride. Also took to the block a yellow 72 GS 455 Convertible and a 87 GN...among other cars.....could not believe this...a 72 Blazer...cherry red with white top......bid to 60k and did not sell.....so many cars.... what fun charity work and all the $$ paid for the drivers goes to rescue missions in my area.
    Then about 5pm a front blew thru and the power was out a couple times for a couple minutes.....rained like hell for 10 minutes ...after it was over, back to business.

    Brian.....i will look you up.....i was planning to check that show out.

    Hey Dave and Joe......thanks for posting the screen captures of me !

    I got invited to drive any Mecum auction.....i may drive Kissimmee next year !

    Peace my friends !
