Other than watching the pretty cars go by, and continue to be amazed at prices for cars we scrapped in the 70s-80's, watching B/J and Mecum on the History Channel, I've given up on auctions. I have two aquaintences that put a new slant on the auction game. (Scam?)

One discovered that he was bidding against a shill for the auction house, another who owned an extremely rare 356A was offered the "services" of an auction house to do the same.

If you're interested in anything other than looking at the pretty cars, i.e. buying or selling a rare car, I'd advise to simply get a broker who does it for a living and stick with the private market. That way you don't end paying 25%-30% more to b part of the "show."
