I was at the Mecum auction yesterday in KC when the red AMX sold, I thought it went at 32K. The black one was still open for bidding after it did not meet reserve from Fridays auction at $13,500. The  the black AMX was listed as a 390 and the red a 360.

I was there too! Dang, I wish I'd known somebody from this forum was going, it would have been fun to meet up.

Pretty good auction, but I did get a little yawn factor at seeing the usual 75-100 Camaro RS/SS cross the block.  Needed some good AMC action, and it was spotty.

These AMX's were simply outstanding, though.

Sorry, those were NOT at this auction-maybe an earlier one.

If they had let the auction run a little longer it would have hit $35-37 IMO. I didn't time it but it seemed it was only a 10-15 minute auction. I watched one car go on and on and on and on, must have been close to 30+ minutes, and it was a $30K car. It probably was a good friend of the auction owner/staff. Just like the BJ Auctions, its who you know.

Do you mean 10-15 second auction?  If they ran each car 10-15 minutes, they wouldn't finish till summer.  I sold a car at auction 4 or 5 years ago and my car got the bums rush you are referring to.  They waited for 1 or 2 minutes for some cars but mine was "wham bam thank you m'am"  30 seconds max.  You have to have connections at these auctions.
