Hello gearhead, this is Greg Stanley and welcome to Auto Sausage where we grind together automotive awesomeness. First, congratulations to our Auto Sausage Auction Game #4 winner…MHicks17! This is really cool because Mhicks17 is a 15-year-old 10th grader in Florida! He was within ~$200k of the total hammer price for Five Cool Cars at Mecum’s Indianapolis Auction last weekend. Congratulations, you’ve won four tickets to the Cincinnati Concours d’Elegance!
Mecum puts on a first class experience and if you’ve never been to one of their Auctions, you need to check one out. I plan on attending their Louisville, Kentucky auction in a few months so if you are going to be there let me know. Learn more at Mecum.com.
As follow up to this historic Auto Sausage Auction Game win, I’m going to review the results and talk about the craziness that is the muscle car market.
Our next Auto Sausage Auction Game is live now. Go to www.AutoSausage.com to guess the total hammer price for five cool cars. The window for guessing the correct bid is open and it closes the day prior to when the auction opens. I will post your best guesses including my own then and you can watch the auction live….to see how you do. If a car doesn’t sell, I will use the highest bid that is realized and published by the auction house. Whoever has the lowest total difference from the total price for all five cars wins!
To help you guess the best guess you could guess, I include the auction estimate for each car if available, Hagarty Price Guide Valuation for a similar car in Good and Concours Condition and my own best guess based on my research and amazing auto knowledge. How am I doing? Well, through twenty cars for our first four Auction Games, I have an 84.9% accuracy rate in guessing the hammer price across all cars including the no sales which can be crazy wildcards. For example, Paul Newman’s Porsche was a huge $490k miss on my part!:) Thankfully I was really accurate on the Impact Yellow Hemi Cuda convertible and the La Ferrari from the second Auction Game. However, I’m 97.5% accurate when factoring only the cars that actually sold.
Our next game is for the RM Sotheby’s Auburn Spring auction which is May 29th – June 1st.
What will you win? $100 worth of Tillamook Beef Jerky! I am getting a lot of interest from sponsors and some future prizes include $200 worth of Star Wars autographs!

Don’t forget to check out my other podcast called Learn From Others where I share the career journeys of successful individuals with high school and college student. I ask fun car questions at the end so be sure to listen in. I will talk to you next week!
