One is an auction while the other is a car show. I can agree though that to have the most amount of attendees, that it would be better to have them on different weekends.

True! But no-reserve is market driven, Carini doesn't control that. Its ultimately the sellers decision to sell. No-reserve, in theory, should get you more exposure and hopefully more money. Barrett is a good example, their car prices are way inflated!!! Besides, it makes for good TV for "CCC"

I like when that show unveils cars that have been sitting in storage for 20-30 years! And when the old man in the garage sprays a little "gum-out" in the carburetor and she fires right up! A testament to European automotive engineering on some episodes.

Does he have his own plane/leased flying time or is that just mocked up for the show's intro?
