    I'd never buy/sell a car through them but I enjoy watching the coverage over the week/weekend. I also enter for the "fantasy bidding". :facepalm:

    Depends on the type of auction (classic, exotic, etc.), but I'm a frequent watcher. Can't get excited about a Corvette.

    I watch it all the time.I went to it 4 years ago. I met Tony Stewart and Reggie Jackson.I've been trying to sell a couple cars of my dad's.They want way too much in fee's and percentage.The market is soft on classics's but not muscle cars.IMO.

    I hate the monster wheels and factory brakes. Nothing wrong with tasteful 19's that fit the wheel wells and 14" Baer brakes IMO. Has to go with the theme of the car as well.
