Just curious, why Russo and Steele? I know there's a few auctions going on that week, including B-J

The hospital has a better relationship with R&S the BJ. I have never been to R&S, but have attended the BJ auction many times. I believe the big car people come in go back and forth, depending on the vehicles they are interested in. I believe the fee structure at R&S is much simpler and cheaper as well.

Now, I'd love to find a really good detailer here in the Phoenix area who would donate a great detail for a great cause.

Got my run time -- Friday between 5:21 and 5:41 pm, which is okay, i think. (Better than 11 am or something.) I drop it off for good in five days...

One of my favorite forum cars and going to a great cause. Is the auction going to be televised? Just watched a couple of the vids, car looks & sounds totally insane.

I tried, but everyone is already busy with all the auctions going on that week.

Beautiful coupe Scott! Money is going to a good cause. One detail I like about R&S over BJ is the people pushing the cars off the stage. The gorillas at BJ will push on the decklids, spoilers, tail lights, mouldings, 1/4 extensions. R&S generally avoid that.

sbindley: I wish I had the funds to bid, but unfortunately I do not. However, I have put the word out to some friends that may be in a position to take a run at your Coupe.

Good luck with the auction and my best wishes to you and your family.
