Adesa Auction's Fall Corvette and Specialty Car Sale gives you a real-world perspective into the old car hobby
Corvettes too plebian for you? There were also several Porsches, BMWs, and Mercedes to choose from. They even had a red Ferrari 308, great for releasing your inner Magnum P.I.
This was a busy few days at the Adesa Kansas City location, because in addition to this event, they held a fleet consignment sale on Tuesday, and a General Motors dealer auction on Wednesday. The whole shebang was marketed as the “Week of Wheels”, and they pulled in dealers from all over the country.
Auctions also give you a real-world perspective on how much cars and trucks are actually worth at any given time. In real life, I work for a used car valuation guide, and results from auctions like those held at Adesa weight significantly in the used prices that we publish. For events like the Specialty Car Sale, you also get a nice barometer on the health of the old car hobby.
How much will you give me to look at a couple hundred pictures from the 2011 Fall Adesa Corvette and Specialty Sale? Can I get a free? Free going once. Free going twice. Sold. Enjoy the photos below.
