A reminder that the annual Corvair Parts Auction conducted by NJACE 
happens this Saturday, February 18, indoors at Ashley's Auto Body on 
Hillside Avenue in Flanders, New Jersey.  Free lunch is included! Here 
are all the specifics:

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.

To fully enjoy the day, please 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, 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.

Please bring sufficient cash, although there are some bank ATMs located 
about a mile away.

Plan on getting there early. As we said 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 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.

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

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?

The weather forecast is favorable so travel should not be an issue. This 
event regularly draws visitors from several states.

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

See you there!
