That Neon Skylark Aviation that sold for 25K was sweet!

some of the neon prices seem more realistic... like the 'Garage' neon

The Sinclair aircraft at $35K sounds like a lot better deal than the 10K for the fake shell sign.

I am surprised the dual wayne 60 showcase pumps did not fetch more than they did.

Were they fantasy put together as first stated or originally a dual?

I don't know what's more absurd, 10K for the fantasy Shell sign or 250K for that fake Beverly Hillbillies car. You could have bought a real classic Packard or Cadillac!

So did Barrett Jackson buy Ron Pratte's signs and globes ? Or are they selling all his signs, globes for Ron ?

Thanks

Barrett-Jackson does not purchase any of the items crossing it's block. Ron Pratte's collection was consigned to us. Last year's auction had over 48 consignors consisting of 700 items. This year we were blessed with over 1600 items consigned by Ron Pratte with another 400 items from approximately 14 collections. I purchase items for my personal collection, for clients and some items which I am able to consign to the sale myself.
Regards,
Rory

Rory, you and your team did a great job. All the crying over prices and everything is ridiculous, and misinformation about consigning is too funny to read about. I got a great clock at a reasonable price and a great story. Thanks for job well done.


Always looking for back-lit advertising clocks, prefer Telechron, American Time & Electric Time. Also Pam in good condition.

Does anyone know how the 10K fantasy Shell sign was presented at the auction? Did the auction company describe it as newly made?
