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, C2, C4, ZR1, C5, ZO6 and Other Cars forums for results on these models respectively.

Good buys

There were a lot of good buys if you wanted to do a little fixing and detailing. The auction was the place to be as back in the For Sale Corrall most cars were priced at top dollar plus. This is common every year.
