TMCP #495: Chris Holstrom – The Ins and Outs of Selling Custom Cars at the BIG Auctions!

Our guest this week is Chris Holstrom from Chris Holstrom Concepts. Chris is a long time friend of the show and his shop is known for creating some of the most beautiful, award winning, and subtle muscle cars and customs around. He recently represented a client’s gorgeous 1964 Corvette at the Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale…..and in his words he “learned a lot” from it in regards to how the process of selling at a highly watched auction works! In this episode he’s going to share the lessons he learned, good, bad, etc. as well as what he plans to do when he does it all again (and he’s going to).

TMCP #383: Auction Insights! Bret Voelkel from Ride Tech at Barrett Jackson, and NPD’s Ask Rick Segment on the Growth of Mecum

This episode marks a fun trip to the January auctions! Our intrepid show producer Bernie McPartland was our man on the scene at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale Arizona and while there caught up with Bret Voelkel of RideTech. To follow up with that, we had Rick Schmidt on to get his opinion on the auction world as a whole, both from a marketing perspective for NPD and as a buyer and seller of cars. I also really wanted his opinion on the higher-than-normal sales prices of “Resto-mod” Corvettes at the Barrett Jackson auction (which he does watch annually) vs their fully restored counterparts.
