Reminder, the New Jersey Association of Corvair Enthusiasts' annual 
Corvair Parts Auction takes place this Saturday.  Here are the details:

The annual Parts Auction is a club staple now dating back more than 30 
years and one of our most popular events of the year.  It is all set for 
Saturday, February 17, indoors at Ashley's Auto Body on Hillside Avenue 
in Flanders, New Jersey.

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, 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. 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.

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

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.

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?

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

See you there, and bring a chair!
