Russo and Steele storm damage pics

As most of you probably know by now a storm destroyed the two gigantic tents with over 800 cars under them at the Russo and Steele collector car auction last weekend. Here is a link to pics of the cars that were under them while the poles, stakes, wiring and everything else was flying around.

Looks like the black TR took a hit.

Drew is trying to say it's the car owners but my guess is a bunch of lawyers will argue otherwise. I think one of the big auto auctions was having problems last year where people were selling cars and not getting paid for 6 months. I think that may have been Russo and Steele?

Here is a link to the tents being blown around if anyone hasn't seen that?

Shame on some of those but glad to see the Malibu SS was ok, especially that conv. from late 60's/early 70's. Wife would love to own that one.

Didn't see any of the birds with probs.

But that FORD, haha, had fiberglass fenders......man, who cares on that one.

That poor woodie, to survive all them years for that!!!

also








NNNoooooooooooooooo .... not this one.... Now I'm cancelling my tickets and throwing away the Pocket Guide they sent me.

That sucks, lots of nice cars damaged.
I know from past experience, that once I've had a collector type car that got damaged, I pretty much lost interest in the car after that. It just isn't the same knowing it's been repaired, no matter how good the fix.
I'm sure those owners are sick to their stomach right now.

Most of them probably had repairs done on them which is why they were being sold at auction anyway!

I'm not crying for any of those cars. If they're truly worth their supposed values, they'll get fixed; didn't appear to be any original survivors there -- just a bunch of cars with fresh, really shiny bc/cc finishes hiding different colors of spot putty.

IF worth their salt = repaired and on they go with added history: Thus is the story for any vehicle

Not all were a bunch of glossed cars, some were truly worth having IMO, but take a look at this 1940 Ford 'Delux' Delivery...notice anything on that NOT worth the price? Should have spent more time finding a true metal replacement fender and THEN painting it...
