Adam,

I agree completely that prices are coming down. Scottsdale imo was a train wreck for European cars anyway. They can't go up every year forever. What I wonder is when are the big selling houses, Mohr Imports, Daniel Schmitt, etc....going to catch on??? Their prices are still OUT there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I don't see them reducing prices at all.

Sorry to hear of your health problems, Thom.
Best of luck with your sale.
Not a buyer, but your pricing on the For Sale Forum looks pretty attractive.
Hope the car goes quickly.

Mohr Imports has some nice cars though. I don't see them as way off for what they have.

Agreed, they do have what appears to be the best of the best. I think Amelia Auctions will tell a lot. I don't consider Scottsdale to be a true measure of European classics.

I get a couple email blasts on the market. The analysis I saw about Scottsdale said the top was still strong and many 6 and 7 figure cars sold above expectation. But they also said the middle and bottom was weak, with many underforming. So maybe those folks you mention donít need to discount their cars to move them.

The nicest cars are still bringing good money, but the average and rougher cars are taking a hit. If you watch there are dozens of cars on ebay that have been sitting there for months with the prices steadily dropping.
Also, Scottsdale, Amelia Island have little to do with the cars most of us buy and enjoy. The best comparison I can give you is it's like going to Paris Fashion Week and you see an Yves St. Laurent gown going down the runway, and then 6 months later you see a version of it at the store at the mall, yes, both Yves but in reality apples and oranges.

So don't put too much stock in what happens at the big auction houses and how that translates to what your car is worth.

That probably because most of the big houses that sell cars are selling most on consignment, they can't lower the prices, but it doesn't really matter to them because they aren't their cars.

Asking high $30's seems to have worked out
