So I'm watching some replays of the Mecum Auto Auction

Illustration for article titled So Im watching some replays of the Mecum Auto Auction

And I’ve got a few questions.

How can there be so many people with so damned much money to buy collector cars? Are they investors? Are these cars ever going to get driven? Are they going to some guy’s garage where he and his golf buddies will stand around and hold a beer while looking at it? Will people show them? Are most of these just long term investments for rich people?


I’m sure it’s a mix of all of that. But I look at a lot of those 6-digit cars and think, “Damn, I’d drive the shit out of that.” Because if I could afford it, I could afford the insurance.
