The fall auction in Auburn IN, the worlds largest collecter car auction, saw around 5000 collector cars registered for sale. This equated into a nice selection of Corvettes for sale. Here are the results with personal comments on the cars I had the opportunity to examine. Cars marked as final bid did not reach the reserve and did not sell. Also go to the C1, C3, C4, ZR1, C5, ZO6 and Other Cars forums for results on these models respectively.

Bloomington Gold & Keyless Entry? Tom, am I missing something here, or is this the way it was shown in the auction program?

Thanks for the information on the Auburn sales. Lots of folks like myself appreciate your time & effort!

Direct quote from the program. I think it was conceled as a theft deterent if I remember right. Nice to see people reading these old threads. It makes it more worthwhile to keep them around. I should be doing Kruse again this year as I don't have anything else on the schedule after Cruise-Fest in May.
