ON THE WEB: Longer Ownership Reduces Loyalty

Certified Pre-Owned Grows in Importance

Analysis from Experian Automotive shows that as the number of months that a consumer owns a vehicle increases, they are less likely to return to market to purchase a vehicle of the same make.

Email Marketing Proves Most Effective

Sophisticated email marketers demonstrated significantly higher rates of data-usage best practices, which was twice as much as the average respondent. The Forrester Consulting study recommends that marketers identify where email is most relevant and influential in the customer’s path to purchase and then incorporate additional channels along the path that tie all the communications together.

Group Sells More Used

Used unit retail sales for Penske Automotive Group Inc. increased by 11.6 percent, including a 7.5 percent increase on a same-store basis.

FERNDALE, Mich. – The certified pre-owned market is growing larger and more important for both dealers and manufacturers. That is one of the key find-

ings of AutoTrader.com’s annual CPO report. The company presented the report, along with a panel of Cox Automotive experts, during a recent press event. Manheim economist Tom Webb said 2014 marks an-

showing a decline in CPO sales this year are Toyota and Honda, and that’s only because the 2011 earthquake in Japan created a shortage of three-year-old vehicles. Continued on page 3

Payment Assurance Device Helps to Free Kidnap Victim A bad man with bad credit is in custody and the woman he is accused of abducting is free, thanks in part to a payment assurance device. Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, a 22-year-old woman who was abducted on Nov. 2 in Philadelphia, was rescued from the car of her alleged kidnapper, 37-year-old Delvin Barnes, in a Jessup, Md., parking lot Nov. 5, officials said. The suspect’s vehicle had been located by law enforcement using the GPS functionality of a PassTime device installed on the car. Barnes was already under investigation by federal agents in another case and they recognized him in photos taken

While PassTime devices are not designed as law enforcement tools, PassTime has been periodically called on by law enforcement to assist in their investigations. “We are proud that a PassTime device was instrumental in determining the location of the suspect’s vehicle,” said Stan Schwarz, founder and CEO of PassTime. “It’s a great feeling to know that our devices are helping people – in many different ways.”

Industry Sees Steady Softening, Stable Prices An analyst with Morgan Stanley made headlines recently by predicting a collapse in the used-car markets as more volume comes to market. Prices are lower right now, at least on an unadjusted basis, but industry experts don’t see a major drop coming any time soon. The average price of a used vehicle for model years 200913 did see the largest monthly depreciation of the year so far at 2 percent during October, according to Black Book. Domestic cars declined the most at 3.2 percent; import cars fell 2.3 percent; domestic trucks fell 2.1 percent; and import trucks fell 1.3 percent. But Black Book editor Ricky Beggs said this reflects a normal seasonal trend. Average pre-recession depreciation is historically between 1 percent and 2 percent monthly, and Black Book expects overall 2014 depreciation of 13.5 percent. The Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index, which adjusts for seasonality as well as mix and mileage, actually rose in October. The index now stands at 121.8, down 0.4 percent from last year. On an adjusted basis, prices were down 6 percent from a year ago. The main reason for the difference between the adjusted and unadjusted prices is rental cars. As a result of recall-delayed selling, auction volumes of rental risk units were up significantly in October. Average mileage was a record 44,800 miles. Manheim chief economist Tom Webb said those who warn of a collapse are only looking at half of the price equation. “You have to have a simultaneous collapse in retail demand,” Webb said. That isn’t happening, as the

publicly traded auto groups showed in their third quarter earnings reports. Used-car sales for these groups were higher for the 21st consecutive quarter, Webb said. The fourth quarter so far shows retail demand remains strong for used cars. October certified preowned sales came in at 202,409, up 7.5 percent from September and 13.8 percent from October 2013. Chrysler and Subaru certified sales were at an all-time high. GM CPO sales were a five-year high. Overall used-car sales came in at 3,084,040 in October, according to TrueCar Inc. That is down slightly from September, but up 2.8 percent compared to last October. There were 27 selling days in October, for a daily selling rate of 7,497. Beggs and Webb both expect prices to decline further as more off-lease vehicles enter the market. Much has changed since the last time the used-car market saw a large influx of off-lease vehicles. The biggest change is the maturity of certified preowned programs. Webb said more and more manufacturers are following the luxury model of leasing a large number of vehicles and keeping those units within the franchise dealer network at end of term. This allows them to better manage their residuals. The various certified programs could actually use more off-lease units right now. Instead, they are turning to off-rental units. These programs have also improved in the past 10 years, Webb said. Rental units today more closely resemble retail units, rather than the poorly contented, cookie cutter offerings of the past.

AutoTrader.com CPO Study – Continued from page 1 Webb said manufacturers need CPO programs to maintain residual values as leasing grows in popularity. He said leasing as a percentage of new-car sales is headed to an all-time high. Dealers like certified units, Webb said, because they create business both at the time

they started their shopping program. Only 15 percent of buyers set out to buy only a certified car. However, consumer awareness that CPO vehicles are available is at all-time high and consideration is growing. One of the biggest miscon-

Peace of mind remains the top reason why consumers opt for certified vehicles overall. But younger buyers cite lower costs than buying new as the top reason they purchased a certified unit. These buyers often buy a new car for their next automotive purchase.

Site Finds Challenge in Building Trust in Used Pricing By Jenny King

DETROIT – New- and used-car retail pricing specialist True Car Inc. is finding the used-car market a challenge. The Santa Monica, Calif., company’s business is to deliver “price confidence” to consumers, True Car president John Krafcik told members of the Automotive Press Association. “It’s tough to deliver that confidence in a used car because you don’t know what the right price to pay is,” Krafcik said. Visitors to TrueCar.com – there are 5 million of them each month – can put in the year, make and model they are considering and receive a list of local dealer members and the prices dealers are asking. The now publicly traded company counts 8,000 newcar dealers and 1,000 independent used-car dealers on its rolls. “We provide in-market customers,” he said. The dealer pays TrueCar $299 for a new car and

$399 for each used car sold through a TrueCar introduction. “Higher price elasticity” results in a more efficient sales channel, Krafcik said. The recently appointed president reviewed the 2014 new-car market in terms of revenues instead of units sold. The market is strong. The current average sale price of a new pickup truck is $39,700, he said. In October, he said, “the average paid for a new Ford F-150 was over $40,000.” His numbers indicate some $520 billion in total new vehicle revenue for 2014, with most of the growth in pickups and utility vehicles. Krafcik reviewed the performances of the top automakers in terms of revenues in four “super segment” categories: passenger cars, utility vehicles, pickups and luxuries. He praised General Motors, with “pretty good balance” in all four segments, adding a revenue forecast in excess of $100 billion for the company in 2014.

“Toyota is well balanced,” Krafcik said. “This is not an accident: it’s the result of great corporate product planning.” Krafcik praised GM’s 2015 full-size SUVs and Toyota’s Lexus lineup. Hyundai-Kia are the most unaligned, he said, because they have no pickups and are weak in the luxury and

utilities segments. Nissan is still focused on the car side, he said. VW is hurting from an over-emphasis on cars, he said, while noting the important revenue contribution to the company from Audi sales. Krafcik briefly addressed the market in terms of how consumers search and buy and how decisions appear to

be made. For example, in spite of all the price comparisons, buyers tend to be willing to pay more for a vehicle at a dealership close to their homes. In the near future, “people will be using mobiles and apps to take them through the entire purchase process,” he said. “Half our traffic is going through mobile.”

Town Defeats Store’s Inflatables By Sheila McGrath

After seven years, a battle over inflatable penguins, eagles and turkeys on the roof of an Ohio car dealership may be nearing its swan song. In January, trustees in Medina Township, Ohio, will finally hold a public hearing on whether to allow businesses to display the large inflatables, which owners often use to draw attention to their store. The dispute first heated up in October 2008, when Bill Doraty, owner of Bill Doraty Kia, began using inflatables on the roof to advertise his business. Township ordinances prohibit the displays. Doraty couldn’t be reached for comment, but according to local news reports about the dispute, he put up a different inflatable each month, often corresponding to holidays or the seasons. And as each eagle, bunny, witch or Santa made its appearance, Doraty would be issued a citation and ordered to take it down. In 2009, Doraty hired a lawyer to draft new zoning laws he felt would be more in line with the needs of businesses. But one township trustee who supported his plan died, and another supporter was voted out of office.

As the battle wore on, Doraty was charged with a misdemeanor for violating zoning rules. In 2010, he sued the township in federal court, charging the township’s sign provisions were vague and violated his right to free speech. He lost the court battle, even though organizations like the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce were standing behind him. “At best, I have been treated a like a second-class citizen,” he wrote in an October 2011 letter to the Eastern Medina Post. “I have been lied to, charged criminally and laughed at during township meetings by the people who are supposed to represent me.” As the rules stand now, it’s still illegal for businesses to display inflatables. The proposed text amendment to the zoning code drafted in 2013 will be coming back to the township trustees for a vote. There haven’t been any inflatables on top of the Bill Doraty Kia building since June, when Doraty sold the business to Chris Lucas, owner of Automax in Columbus. If the township trustees vote to amend the rules, the township would begin regulating the height, size and duration of time the inflatables would be allowed.

General Motors Expects Increased Volumes in ‘15 How is your volume this year? What about next year?

Kennedy:

When we close out 2014, the volume will be almost identical to last year’s volume. We’re expecting an increase in volume next year. We expect a more consistent flow of vehicles into the marketplace for the entire year.

Dan Kennedy is the manager of remarketing for General Motors

Are you seeing more Volts?

Kennedy:

It’s a small volume car in our auctions. The ones we do have are selling well. There’s a demand from the dealers.

In the past, an increase in volumes meant adding sales. Today, can you handle the increase without adding physical sales?

Kennedy: We will be able to handle the volume with the portfolio of auctions we have today. The higher volumes will fill in those lighter months we have experienced over the last couple of years. It’s hard to smooth out the returns, but we can smooth out the offerings so you don’t have spikes in availability and instead you have a steady cadence of vehicles coming into the market. The auctions have the capacity to handle the volume for us next year. We will continue to monitor auction performance and adjust our portfolio of auctions to improve the overall performance of our products in the marketplace.

What do you make of the talk of a major drop off in used-car prices?

Kennedy:

We saw a shift in the market in July. The market went down and that wasn’t expected. Typically, July and August are pretty flat months. This year, it seemed the entire market shifted forward and we saw declines we would normally see in September get pulled into July. Once we got through July and August, we’ve started to see more typical seasonal declines. I really can’t explain what happened in July and August. Some of the dealers say it was an adjustment for prices spiking earlier in the year and the drop just leveled the trend.

Is there any vehicle that’s especially in demand with your dealers?

Kennedy:

It really depends on where in the country they are and what’s being offered. It’s amazing, some of the differences we see from market to market, even within the same regions. One day, one product will be hot and then you go 500 miles to another auction the next day and that product is cold. It depends on the volume on any given day and who is standing in the sale lanes.

How is the make-up of your auctions these days?

Kennedy:

The portfolio of auctions is balanced between Manheim, ADESA and independents. We like having a mix of auctions. Having competition among the auctions is good – it’s good for our dealers, it’s good for us and it’s good for the industry. It keeps people creative. Our relationships with all our auctions are very good. We appreciate what they are doing for us, especially with the volume of vehicles we are moving through the lanes. It has taken a lot of work on their part and a lot of work on the part of my team to get these vehicles ready. They’re contacting all the dealers to make them aware of the line-ups and the promotional programs. It has taken a cohesive effort by all.

What is the trend for dealers buying online?

Kennedy:

We continue to see growth online, but we still see a fair number of dealers standing in the lanes. Online, they are buying vehicles that aren’t repaired or reconditioned. We have some dealers who like that because they have processes set up at their stores to do that. At the physical auction, the vehicles are repaired and reconditioned for them. I expect online sales will continue to grow as the quality of information regarding the vehicle improves. Continuing to improve the quality of the condition reports and the information provided to the dealers will enhance the buying experience of the dealers and their trust in the process. As sellers we must stand behind the information provided to the dealers and if a mistake is identified, we must make the situation right.

What are some of your latest innovations?

Kennedy:

We just launched a multi-platform strategy for our upstream vehicles. We’ve been selling solely on SmartAuction for years. In November, our dealers can now purchase our vehicles upstream through OVE and we’re poised to add ADESA.com to provide access to our dealers. We are interested to see how that works out. We want to make it easy for our dealers to find the vehicles they need for their business and purchase them.

Toyota Tops Reliability Rankings DETROIT (AP) — Toyota continues its winning streak atop Consumer Reports’ annual reliability rankings. The company’s Toyota and Lexus brands top the survey, while its Scion brand is in the top ten. It’s the eighth year in a row that a Toyota brand has led the rankings. “Toyota has a strategy that emphasizes reliability over excitement,” says Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ head of auto testing. “They take a conservative approach to redesign and roll out new features slowly. “The risk is they may not have the latest bells and whistles, but the reward is world class reliability.” Japanese brands generally fared well in Consumer Reports’ survey, which predicts the reliability of 2015 model year cars and trucks based on a survey of subscribers who own 1.1 million vehicles from current or prior model years. Mazda, Honda and Subaru joined Toyota in the top ten. Audi was the highest scoring non-Japanese brand, while Buick was the only domestic brand in the top ten. Infotainment systems generated the most complaints from Consumer Reports’ readers and hurt many brands with new models, including Infiniti, Fiat and Cadillac. The most

common problems were unresponsive touch screens and trouble with pairing up phones. Younger car owners tended to be the most impatient with glitchy electronics. “They expect the same connectivity level when they’re in the car,” says Doug Love, a spokesman for the magazine. Ford’s luxury Lincoln brand moved up 12 spots in the survey, the most of any brand, after fixing bugs in its touch-screen dashboard. Hyundai gained eight spots, mostly because it had few new vehicles. New cars and trucks tend to have more problems, and the magazine recommends waiting a year or two after a new model comes out before buying it. Truck buyers complained about new full-size pickups from Chevrolet and GMC, which were plagued by squeaks and rattles. Mercedes-Benz fell the hardest, by 11 spots in the rankings, because of quality issues with its new lowerpriced CLA sedan and complaints about the electronics in the higherend S Class. The recently merged Fiat Chrysler Automobiles fared worst in the rankings, with its Dodge, Ram, Jeep and Fiat brands in the bottom four spots.

Quality – Continued from page 12 attitudes. It’s a lot of work. We never had any problems with it.” Orr co-owns the business with his wife Ramona. The two have been married for 58 years and gave his secret for a long-lasting marriage. “I just found myself a good one to start,” he said. Orr said he got into the car business because of his interest in it and he saw the need for a dealership, along with an opportunity to open up a store. His daughter and three grandsons work at the dealership while two of

his other children are in auto auctioneering. Other employees have worked at the store for decades. In addition to running the dealership, the Orrs have supported the City of Mitchell Fire Department and Mitchell Memorial Playground building project. They have also provided passenger vans for Orange County area youth groups. “You just feel like you owe it to the community and to the people,” Orr said. “I mean, if you’ve done good, then share.”

Ace Christian, owner/ operator, Rock Solid Auto Center, Mesa, Ariz.: “I’ve been in business since 2005. I have one location. “We keep about 75 cars on our lot and sell about 50 per month. Last year was about 90 cars and we sold 65. “But it’s starting to pick up. The market is starting to change the last couple of years. “I mostly (stock) my lot from auctions. “We are buy-here, payhere only. But we’re more of a buy-here, pay-there. Our related finance company is not located on the lot. So we don’t take payments on the lot. “Now 70 percent to 75 percent of my customers pay online. It’s the best thing I ever did. It just doesn’t look good on a Friday afternoon when your customers come to make a payment and someone complains about the car they bought. “The average retail price is about $8,000. Last year was a little higher. My charge-

off (rate) has gone down a lot. People are (making an effort) to keep their cars. “Our average mileage is between 100,000 and 120,000. It’s just a little bit higher than last year. The average model year is probably 2008 or 2009. “I’m pretty much carrying all domestics. I carry just a few Nissans. “I don’t have lot of SUVs, because my (average price) is around the $8,000 and an $8,000 SUV had its better days a few years ago. “I average about $800 to $900 for reconditioning. We try not to go over $1,200. It was about $1,200 last year, but we had to scale back. “(At that cost), people were not paying any more for the car. After scaling back, they are still buying them, so we’re saving about $300 per car on recon. “For marketing/advertising, we do a little bit of radio, a little bit of television and a lot of (direct mail). “One car we sold recently an 2008 Chevy HHR with 120,000 miles one it. It sold for $8,200.”

:gehad]\ÛZqÛA]^^j]qÛ9]ddYfl FLORIDA

Paul Matton, chief operation officer, Park Auto Mall, Pinellas Park, Fla.: “Park Auto Mall has been around for a long time (but the current owner) acquired it about five years ago. “We have one location. “We keep over 200 cars on the lot. That’s a little more than last year. Business is a lot better. We’ve been selling over 100 a month. “We get our vehicles from everywhere. We get them from the auctions, from offlease, daily rentals – like Enterprise, Dollar – anywhere we can get them. “We’re not paying any more. We’re just working harder and a little smarter. It’s about knowing when to buy them, when not to buy them. “There’s no buy-here, payhere. We do subprime. We use (lenders) like Credit Acceptance Corp., Wells Fargo, Chase – we have 30 different ways to go. So we’ll use secondary finance. Whatever it takes to get the job done. “The retail prices run

from $8,000 to $35,000 or $40,000. The sweet spot would be anywhere from $15,000 to $18,000. “Our dealership is unique. We don’t have commissioned sales people. We have customer service reps. Our staff is all ladies, we don’t have any guys. We have signs on the windows, ‘If you need service, please come inside.’ So there’s nobody hassling you, or tackling you. The way we look at it, we don’t sell cars. We help people buy cars. “We must be doing something right, because we’re selling more than 100 per month. “We carry 2009s through 2014s right now. We’re getting more (late-model cars) because of the rentals coming back. “Mileage depends on the cars, but we’re mostly getting them in the 40,000s and 50,000s. “We also get some nice, low-mileage trades that we take in. We carry a lot of trucks, a lot of vans and a lot of cars. “The average recon is

probably $800 to $900 on the newest stuff. On the oldest stuff it’s probably $1,200 to $1,500. When we recon, we make sure they’re certified, so we stand behind the cars. “We have 15 bays. We do customer-pay service. That business has increased over last year. We’re doing very well with that. I think it’s going to continue to increase. “In 2008 and 2009, you had to change your ways because of the car shortage. You had sell an older, rougher car and put more recon into it. Now we’re getting back to where we have a new-car alternative type of thing. “We’re on track to selling 1,500 cars this year. Last year was less, maybe 1,250. “We use cable for advertising. For service and parts, we’ll use (direct mail providers) Valpak and Beacon. “We recently sold a 2014 Chevy Malibu. It was in the 20,000s. We got about $16,000 for it. “I think the rest of the year will be phenomenal.”

WHOLESALE MARKETS INDIANA

Bob Ruth, general manager, Wolfe’s South Bend Auto Auction, South Bend, Ind.: “The auction will be 12 years old in March. “We have four lanes, but we usually run two or three lanes. “Volumes are at 250 to 300 consistently. “We’re having a better year this year than last. I think that’s dealer-driven. I think dealers are busier and that in turn helps us. The mom-and-pop stores are doing better this time of the year. “The other thing is we’re getting near tax time when the dealers load up. “Sales percentages are steady. There are times where guys are standing in the lane with their hands in their pockets and you’re lucky to do 50 percent. Then there are other times where you’re selling 65 to 70 percent. Overall, though, I think we’re doing about 55 percent. “Dealers are being much more specific (in their buy-

ing). “Dealers will come from right across the street or from 250 miles away. Remember, (in the Wolfe family of auctions) we have a facility here, one in Terra Haute, Ind., and one in Evansville, Ind. So we have the ability to cover the entire state. “But with fewer cars available, a dealer will travel a little farther (and utilize) the Internet. We’ll alert dealers, by emailing lists and faxing lists, to tell a dealer (what we have available). “A dealer will call back to check if that vehicle is available and learn about its general condition and we’ll check it out. Being an independent, you have to do these little things. “I think a lot more things are happening electronically in the business that makes it a lot more difficult on the dealership side. So we’re doing more electronically. “Both our lanes are live on AWG. That’s a big tool for us, especially in inclement weather. “Dealer consignment

Compiled by Jeffrey Bellant is every bit of 80 percent of what we offer. We have some fleet-lease repossession. We also do repo business with a lot of credit unions, banks and finance companies. “Guys like to buy repos. If you put two cars side by side, and one is ‘ABC Bank’ and one is ‘ABC Dealer,’ the bank car would still do better as a repo. “If a (seller) has five or more cars to sell, we’ll transport them for free, just to get them to the sale. “The average price (on the block) is between $2,500 and $3,500.”

OKLAHOMA

Mike Cloptin, general manager/partner, Oklahoma Auto Exchange, Oklahoma City: “Our 10th year in business (starts) the second week in January. At the end of the year, since our sale falls on New Year’s Eve, we’re going to have a celebration. We’re going to give away a lot of things and have a toast to the next year with nonalcoholic champagne.

“We have four lanes and we’re running four. “We’ve been running between 750 and 850 vehicles each week. We’ve been selling about 62 percent. “During our (Oct. 29) sale we sold about 68 percent. For that time of the year, that’s high for us. “We’re actually up about 5 percent for the year. The last couple of months have been very strong. We’ve had some significant growth. We have the same customers. We just have higher volumes from the sellers. “Usually, we’re (drawing) between 250 and 300 dealers, but the last few weeks (late October, early November) it’s been about 300. “That’s quite a bit higher than this time last year. We’re just getting more of our in-state buyers and a few more out-of-state buyers. “We’re starting to sell to a lot more buyers from Kansas in the last couple of months. “Right now, 75 percent of our consignment is dealer trades and about 25 percent is fleet-lease repos. We have

lease accounts – LeasePlan USA and Automotive Solutions – but the rest of them are from local banks. “But that’s where we want to be. When we started, we wanted to focus on new-car trades and get better. That’s what we did. “Right now, our average price is $4,600. That’s a little bit higher than last year. We were about $4,400 last year. “The majority of our business is from buy-here, payhere dealers. That business is strong. Some are buying now (early November), but they usually start buying in the latter part of November through December. “It’s been an encouraging year. We continue to grow and increase our sales percentage, which is important for us. We’ll be starting our 10th year and probably 60 percent of our staff now is who we started with. It’s also encouraging to see your staff grow and get better. We have long-standing relationships with our dealers because we have a strong staff.”

SALE CELEBRATES WITH FEAST

CHOW LINE: Attendees at the Dealers Auto Auction of the Rockies in Denver enjoy a meal as the auction celebrates its 19th anniversary.

Dealers Auto Auction of the Rockies’ 19th anniversary celebrations started on Oct. 8 with its annual preview barbeque. The party kicked off at 4 p.m. with live music from Mike Dixon and Trip Wire Band. Troy’s Specialty BBQ, owned by Troy Merrill with Akron Auto, provided the barbeque for the event. “Troy started smoking the food at 6 a.m., and the aroma filled the air all day,” said Alex Zyla, auction marketing manager. “We could not wait to eat.” The 19th anniversary celebrations continued with DAA Rockies’ weekly sale, when 1,500 units ran through the lanes. Nearly 500 customers were in the lanes and online to buy. “It was a record-setting week for Dealers Auto Auction of the Rockies,” said Michele Noblitt, executive vice president. “Our customers have been loyal to us over the years. We strive week in and week out to provide them with the best service in the industry.” Customers were treated to breakfast burritos and chili from a local restaurant and received giveaways made by local companies,

Auction, Chrysler Mark 50-Year Milestone Manheim Philadelphia hosted a Chrysler 50th anniversary sale for franchised Chrysler dealers on Oct. 16. The first Chrysler factory sale was held at Hatfield Auto Auction (now known as Manheim Philadelphia) in 1964. Both companies have maintained this relationship for 50 years. “Chrysler is proud of its 50-year tradition of selling cars to our dealers at Manheim Philadelphia, and we look forward to growing our partnership in the market with greater volumes over the coming year,” said Mark Nagel, head of company car and remarketing for Chrysler. Manheim Philadelphia, located in

tion, I wrote it ahead of time for the sake of continuity. Even now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pushing the deadline. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read lots of newspapers, done enough crosswords to turn my eyes square if the television didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it for me and caught up on some outstanding reading. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to imply that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been or continues to be an easy ride. When a surgeon is up to his elbows in your chitterlings and puts you back together with bailing wire, twine and superglue (seriously) it

one since 1982 and it continues to provide an ideal opportunity for some old-fashioned networking. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a lot of grace and generosity among a bunch of hard-bitten car people. I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old news now, but the pedal car charity auction in support of the Warren Young Sr. scholarship fund was nothing short of phenomenal. All the stars were aligned for a successful sale â&#x20AC;&#x201C; money, motivated buyers and sellers, fine product, peer pressure and some

terrific auctioneers but no one could have predicted the half a million dollars plus on something that we would have been ecstatic to see $50,000 for. The association gave some commemorative rings to the Hall of Fame members that were worthy of a Super Bowl win. Being one so privileged, I realized how blessed the association has been over the years with a pantheon of recipients on stage all at once. Speaking of that, Alexis Jacobs, a long-time friend and colleague, owner of Columbus Fair Auto Auction, was inducted this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; many congratulations from all in the business. The auction industry seems to be evolving continuously and taking lead positions on salient issues, especially where condition reporting and standards are concerned. Involvement and alignment from other industry groups is now the norm where there use to be considerable protectionism and isolation. This is like a walk across China â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a forbidding task â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but you have

C R O S S WO R D

to take the first steps. Will the day come when a used car or truck is a totally fungible product, when universal conditions are compared? Thankfully, I think the answer is still â&#x20AC;&#x153;no.â&#x20AC;? Geography, weather, supply and demand will still keep a sense of mystery to values, although the variables may not be so great. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been courting the edges of the classic car business recently and if ever there was a business that could use a better description capability, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Vehicle histories become clouded and shrouded in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they should be called vehicle mysteries! Many fall into the category of â&#x20AC;&#x153;clockedâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;cut and shutâ&#x20AC;? cars of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s with questionable paperwork to

ostensibly support a vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description. While I fully appreciate that refurbishment, renovation or rebuilding are all part and parcel of the business, all kinds of opportunities arise to skirt the edges of truth. I believe the classic business is due for another growth spurt but the audience would be bigger if true descriptions could be relied upon. Television has grown the awareness of classics, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also put the spotlight on some old-fashioned jiggery pokery. Sitting at home makes it easy to look down the microscope and venture some of these opinions, but I sometimes wonder which end Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking through!
