The New Jersey Association of Corvair Enthusiasts’ annual Corvair Parts 
Auction is all set for this Saturday, February 13, indoors at Ashley’s 
Auto Body in Flanders, New Jersey.  Everyone is invited, and lunch is 
included at no charge!

At the auction our shameless auctioneers offer Corvair parts and 
Corvair-related items to the highest bidder, with a 10% commission of 
the sale price going to the club treasury. You may bring parts to sell, 
you may buy, or you may do both, or you may just come to enjoy the fun.

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 AM for set-up, we begin the 
bidding at 10:30 AM, take a pizza break at 12:30 PM, 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. If you're selling, you will need to 
fill out an Auction Lot Card for each part or group of parts being sold 
as one, so please allow sufficient time to do this before the start of 
bidding.  The Auction Lot Card form is available on the NJACE website so 
you can print what you need and fill them out in advance:


But you can also get blank lot cards that day.

If you’re buying, arrive early enough to preview the items that are 

Each attendee will be issued a Bidder Number by which the auction desk 
will track all purchases.

Third, we ask that items being offered be limited to Corvair parts or 
Corvair-related items, only.  Also, we ask that you not bring more than 
one of the same item to sell.  You can, however, sell multiple items in 
a "lot."  You could offer, say, one lot of six oil filters, instead of 
six individual oil filters.

Remember that only quality items sell easily. Greasy, rusty, 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.

Did we mention that lunch is included at no charge?

What if the weather is bad?  Well, it’s an indoor event so we will 
postpone only if the weather makes traveling difficult or if accumulated 
snow has rendered the Ashley’s parking lot inaccessible.  Right now, the 
forecast is favorable, so generally speaking, you can assume that the 
event is “on,” but if it is necessary to postpone we will get the word 
out via email.

Ashley’s Auto Body is located at 274 Hillside Avenue, Flanders, NJ 07836.

See you there, and bring a chair!
