Looks like the 3 Panteras at Kissimmee did better than the recent ones on BAT. Still a pretty wide discrepancy in 3 cars. Personally just from the pics I thought the one that went for the most should have went the least, but I guess without being there it's hard to know. Anybody on here attend? I believe Sharkey usually does. Here is the prices after buyers fee.

I should add the red one had a Jim Inglese Weber style fuel injection. I would have liked to have seen more pics of the decklid since it looked like it was not notched. It must have been cut all the way across or managed to just fit.
Mecum also sold the original GT40 for $6.3M and today they are selling some very expensive Ferrari's including an F40. This event always brings top dollar. I think more so that BJ which starts in a couple weeks.
Having watched the action on BaT for a couple years now, I would never sell my car there. The audience is full of self-proclaimed experts that tear cars apart and are just there to watch people get destroyed.
Agree 100%. A lot of idiots that think they are experts, just post comments to be "heard" I can't even spend the time to read the comments anymore.
The yellow Pantera at Mecum was a Thursday car, just goes to show what a prime time spot and maybe some liquor can do for your sale!
I actually think BaT is a pretty good platform and commands decent prices , key is for the seller to be engaged in the auction and yes the comments can be frustrating, but most serous bidders look past the trivia. With a buyers premium of 5% capped at $5k and something like $149 listing fee, it provides value to the seller and buyer and sure beats giving 20% of the proceeds to the regular auction houses.
You can see with the mesh screens the air horns sit below the level of the engine screen, so no need to cut the decklid.
Oh, I agree, it's a good platform to sell with the cost to list and the %, I was more commenting on the Lazy Boy "experts and their wealth of knowledge."
I follow BAT quite a bit. I don't consider Panteras to do very well on it as a whole or at least plenty of head scratchers for me on why one does well and one poor. I follow the Shelbys a lot too. They are knit picked pretty hard at times, however I would consider that most of them do very well on BAT. Despite the price variations it also always seems that a guy chimes in saying a Pantera should be less and a guy saying a Shelby should be even more.
