    Default Barrett Jackson - Scottsdale 2019

    FEP,

    I know that everyone bags on the auction scene, especially Barrett Jackson, but there is an interesting Mustang collections is rolling at the BJ Scottsdale 2019. The Jerry Maddox collection. It has 1 four-eyed on the auction block and it is a doozy, wow..... 1984 GT 350, 5 spd, 5.0, only 121 original miles. It has a goofy sticker on the drivers door, but other than that, this four eyed Mustang appears just cherry. Check it out. Wonder if it will set a high mark for the 4 eyes?

    More Wrapper Cars! It will if Rawlings and Collins are in the house Will be watching for sure!

    Nice collection...makes you wonder if any of them were previous auction cars from Richard & Dennis? The Red 89 LX looks familiar to me...perhaps a former Terry McCoy car?

    Here's the Four Eye: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Even...G-GT350-223621

    Based on real results the past few years, and of course the past few years of B-J Auctions, this one could bring six figures I would think: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Even...COBRA-R-224174

    I believe this is indeed a former Terry McCoy car....I have a picture of Terry and the car from 2007 at the Indy Motor Speedway where I first met him. Hard to imagine two of these cars existing in the exact same "wrapper condition"....down to the door protectors and neon green paint mark on the front passenger tire.

    Surprised anyone saved a red interior car like that. (The '89 LX. I am aware all the GT350s had red). That will hold the value back. Since you can't drive it, it should at least be nice to look at and 95% of people hate the red. I also never understood all the hate towards auctions. Like it's their fault someone has too much to drink and too much pride and overpays???? I never got that one. I am going to an auction this Saturday actually and I can promise you, nobody in the building can FORCE me to overpay for a car and therefore "Artifically drive up the price" of Fox Mustangs. That whole premise is simply hilarious. Like blaming the banks for the economic collapse in '08 when the GOVERNMENT FORCED banks to lend money to people they knew could not afford to repay and then the people who signed loans they also knew they could not afford to repay also blamed the bank for lending it to them???????? SIGH.......

    It will be fun to watch, I will be there! The mileage is soooo low on all of these Mustangs in the Maddox collection. The low miles will make a bidder or two still love that red interior, it will bring a nice price. Weird as it sounds, these crazy colorful interiors are really growing on me since nowadays the only interior colors you can get on most every car are black, gray/charcoal and sometimes tan, that is it (not including the 911's, Bentley, Aston Martin types). Heck, most cars only come with black carpet now. Remember, when you could get a red, blue, green, brown, etc.... Damn, I am showing my age....

    It will be fun to watch and I for sure will be watching. However, those same people would all pay more for an identical one with a different color interior if they crossed the block back to back. There is no doubt that will hold the value back. People with that kind of disposable income are also very concerned about resale value potential. At least if they are smart they are. Here's a sentence that has never been said before: "Man, I've been looking everywhere for a 'whatever color' Mustang with red interior and they just don't exist."

    Iíll be watching as always.
    Friday night I watch by myself and Saturday I invite some friends over and we eat and drink super bowl style.

    I donít care about the auction part of it, i think of it like watching a car show.

    I donít now and probably never will own any cars that have history or have low enough miles to not drive them. The prices at auction are not relevant to me and I donít care whoís collection the car used to be in. Itís an opportunity to see some nice cars and get some ideas of colour and wheel combinations for future projects

    I have 2 red interior vehicles and I LUV that BEAUTIFUL RED INTERIOR in both of em!

    "I" think my RED INTERIORS have great sex appeal and ADD VALUE to both vehicles.

    I guess I'm a 5% er!

    I have a white 66 mustang with a turquoise interior. Sure is better than another red car with a black interior.

    Honestly I love the red interior in my black 86GT. It’s actually very difficult to find a black GT loaded with options and a red interior.

    A lot of people have trouble with reading comprehension here, LOL. For your review, I said most people hate it and without any question that is true. I see nobody argued with that part. Probably because everyone knows it's true. Also for those having trouble, I never said I hated it. I had #4124 GT350 for 20 years and up until last year, I had a GT Turbo with Red interior. I personally like the red because it's unique. Most of you who say you like it today probably hated it when it was new. And you can track the price of the "now infamous" car however there will never be any way to prove whether or not an identical car with grey interior would have sold for more money. Nobody said it would not get a bid. So y'all get your calm on. I for one can't wait. Coverage starts Tuesday night and Tuesday and then Sunday will most likely be the best chance to see a nice Fox.

    I love the red interior with the GT cars 84-86. When it is mint it is awesome. I also like the 87-89 red plaid GT interior.

    I think the old "I hate red interiors" might be just a reason for broke folks to bash a car for sale on forums.

    Red is great on these especially when it's nice . 95% hate is steep .

    Will be fun to see all of the Mustangs run at BJ. The 1984 GT350 with 121 miles will be neat to watch, it goes on Thursday along with several others from the Maddox collection. There are a couple of fox bodies going as well.

    Did anyone see the Blue/White Ď83 Convertible sell last night?

    Website says sold for $9,900.

    Wondering if it made it on tv and how it looked, or if anyone at the sale saw it in person.

    Seems odd the 7UP and the 89LX both pulled more than the GT350
