while you are waiting for the Auction to begin, here is a 14 minute walk-thru of the auction that I shot around 6pm on the Preview Day before all the chairs were installed:

I deleted the embedded YouTube link, try this one instead:

Microcar Museum Auction Walk-thru

I think I am done catching up on PREVIEW Day now. Time to go to bed.

Auction Day #1 starts tomorrow (Friday) at around 10am. The actual bidding won’t start until a little after 10 as they have some announcements to make and formalities.  I will try to get results up as soon as they are available and as technology permits me.

Good Night!

Its hard to take a pic of it, but this is the tent that covers the entire Museum Parking Lot. Right now there are a bunch of cars in it to make room for more people in the building. Later tonight (probably going on right now) MORE cars will be moved out of the building into the Tent to accommodate the roughly 1000 chairs that have to be set up for Registered Bidders. Will try and get you you some images of that in the morning.

There are some bargains to be had here. Where else will you find Messerschmitts in the Trash Can? I think - with some work- I can make one decent Mold-A-Rama Kr200 out of these three.

    i would have definitely taken 243 at that price. 254 is a great taker as well. 266 is a good buy as well.

  9. admin Says:

    at some point you will see the price of the Beetle, but not here.
    go to RM Auctions for that info.

  10. Paul Says:

    Hey Admin: Thank you for a great job on the blog. Happy to be able to see what’s going on.

  11. Richard Says:

    Thanks for getting these posted Jim. What a thrill to see.

    Surprising spread in the KR200 prices. And the Peel??? Oh my God!

  12. Richard Says:

    Lot 336 for 6000? That was well bought.

  13. Frank Says:

    Thanks for doing this!!

  14. Martin Says:

    lot 298 is a normal KR 200. replica parts converted it to “Abschleppfahrzeug”-specification. It never was an original service car.

  15. Wendy Says:

    Your doing a great job on this Jim, very much appreciated for those of us who could not attend.

    The Messerschmitt KR-200 Cabriolet is really a very cool and special microcar. I think I will try purchasing the White KR-200 Cabriolet coming up for auction In March at the Hollywood wheels Palm Beach Auction. I would love to have it!

    Man I love that Frisky. Wish I could have been there. Thanks for your hard work on this, Jim!

    Jim, can you repost lot 304? It shows it sold for ,000. Looks like it dropped a number.
    Thanks for what you are doing there.
