Body on Hillside Avenue in Flanders, New Jersey. All interested persons

 > and one lot that includes a '65 steering column with wood wheel, a 
set of LM window/door handles with wood knobs, and a custom-made WOOD 
dash pad for 65-69 to replace the padded one

Directions appear at the end of this message. Here is what you need to 
know to fully enjoy the day:

First, plan on making a day of it. Due to the nature of how the auction 
operates, it is not possible to process any buyers or sellers until the 
auction is completed. Doors open at 9:00 for set-up, we begin the 
bidding at 10:30 AM, take a pizza break at 12:30, resume the bidding at 
1:00 PM, and finish up typically around 2:30 PM. Only at that time can 
we tally the sales, collect from the buyers, and pay the sellers.

Second, plan on getting there early. We'll open the doors at 9:00 AM, to 
allow time to tag and display any parts you are selling, and to allow 
you to peruse the parts being offered.

If you're selling, you will need to fill out a Lot Card for each part or 
group of parts being sold individually, so please allow sufficient time 
to do this before the start of bidding.

If you are buying -- or even if you think you are not buying -- you will 
be issued a Bidder Number by which the auction desk will track all 

We ask that items being offered be limited to Corvair parts or 
Corvair-related items, only. Typically we have upwards of 200 lots to 
get through, so we are not able to deal with items outside of this 

Also, we ask that you not bring more than one of the same item to sell.  
It is difficult to sell, in an auction setting, multiples of the same 
thing. You can, however, sell multiple items in a "lot." You could 
offer, say, one lot of six oil filters, instead of six individual oil 

Remember that only quality items sell easily, and that greasy, rusty 
junk will not only not sell, our very picky auctioneers may not even try 
to sell it! Bent and broken pieces have limited appeal.

The club will deduct a 10% commission on all sales. You may also donate 
items for the full benefit of the club.

Again, the doors open at 9:00 AM for setup, on Saturday, February 16, 
rain, snow, or shine!
