Classic vehicles are joining the ranks of art, jewelry as popular collectible assets

You can have your Picassos, your Ch teaux Lafites, your 20-carat pink diamonds. The only collectible Friday that mattered to Koko Herman was the metallic blue 1968 Pontiac GTO on the auction block at the Colorado Convention Center.

Herman raised her hand to bid. Someone bid higher. She raised the bid. Someone else bid higher.

The 600 vehicles up for auction Friday and Saturday ran the gamut from vintage classics such as a 1923 Ford Model T Roadster to 1960s muscle cars to Ferraris and Maseratis.

As a whole, collectible car values have risen 44 percent over the past three years, according to Hagerty, a Michigan-based automotive insurer and valuation firm.

Analysts say that over the past decade, classic cars have entered the realm of traditional collectible assets such as fine art, coins and jewelry.

But aside from a few high-net-worth investors who will pay millions for extremely rare and exotic cars, most of the market is driven by buyers who don’t care not much, anyway about return on an investment.

“It’s kind of a bucket-list thing,” said Dave Magers, CEO of Mecum Auctions. “These are people looking for the car they had in high school, or the car they wanted to have in high school. People want to have fun with these cars, and they’re a lot more fun than hanging a piece of art on the wall.”

Herman, who works in the investment department of FirstBank, said she expects eventually to realize a return on her ’68 GTO, but that wasn’t on her mind Friday.

“I like the physical part the feel of the power, the speed, the glances you get from people next to you at the stoplight,” she said. “The GTO was always a hot car in the group that I grew up with.”

By late Friday afternoon, the auction’s top sale was a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette convertible that commanded $60,000. Other cars sold for far less. The top bid on a 1987 Pontiac Fiero was $3,000.

Magers said that over the course of the two-day auction, he expects several sales to ring up at more than $100,000.

Veteran car collectors Diana and Bernard Schrader traveled from Henderson, Nev. to catch the Denver show and to sell their ’59 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner with a retractable hardtop. Selling is the main purpose of their trip. But with so many attractive cars on the auction block, might they return to Nevada with a new purchase in tow?

Bernard’s bidding hand virtually twitched in expectation until he glanced at Diana.

“I’m going to get some masking tape,” she said, grinning, “and use it to tape his arms down.”

Rotary offers standard general service four post lifts which have the same engineering built in. Able to accommodate a variety of wheel bases, we can fit and lift whatever is driven on the road. Keeping our lift lineup flexible means we can offer accessories like bolt on alignment kits for these lifts. This enables you to upgrade and handle the additional business that will come your way when you purchase and own a Rotary Lift. All of our 4 post lifts include heavy alley channels for Rolling Jacks; convert the standard four post lift to an all mighty lifting machine!

Get our vehicle lifted and under service with the peace of mind that all Rotary four post lifts and any of its accessories work to our higher standards.

Rotary alignment lifts come standard with everything incorporated into the runways of the lift. You can use the lift as you normally would in a general service situation, and make use of the alignment features that are compatible with all leading alignment instrumentation, including 3D and camera wheel alignment systems. Our open front design allows greater vehicle access and enhanced productivity.

Need more reason to perchance a Rotary Lift®, SHOCKWAVE™! Subtract time from each service cycle, subtract cost from your electric bill and add value with a system concept worth adding to our current four post lift line. It s faster, that s all we need to say.

#PASS is an acronym for Post Abortion Stress Syndrome. PASS is an unofficial name, because it is not officially recognized by the medical community yet. Some sections believe in PASS, others do not. Until enough studies have been done to confirm it’s ‘existence’, the syndrome is still ‘unofficial’. This does not mean it does not exist! For more details on PASS, and why it’s not “officially recognized” yet, see the following sections:

  • Stages, Symptoms FAQs about PASS

After an abortion, how do you recover? How do you deal with the intense feelings of sadness and grief that some women feel? What do you do if you have even more serious complications after an abortion? You’re not alone, and help is available! Post Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS) is the name for a condition that can affect women after an abortion. Not every woman who has an abortion is affected by it. Some women who have abortions feel peaceful about their decision beforehand, relieved afterwards, and then live the rest of their lives with no regrets. Other women may have a different experience, and may have a more difficult time recovering after an abortion. When a woman has an abortion, it’s possible that the woman will have some normal feelings of grief, guilt and loss. If the feelings become severe, or persist for a long period of time, she may be suffering from Post Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS). “PASS” is different from ‘normal feelings’ of loss and depression immediately following an abortion. How is it different? When is it PASS and not just ‘normal feelings’?
When the reactions and feelings in the first 3 months following an abortion are severe, causing such problems as:

  • Self-harm, strong suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts
  • Increase in dangerous and/or unhealthy activities (alcohol/drug abuse, anorexia/bulimia, compulsive over-eating, cutting, casual and indifferent sex and other inappropriate risk-taking behaviors)
  • Depression that is stronger than just ‘a little sadness or the blues’
  • Inability to perform normal self-care activities
  • Inability to function normally in her job or in school
  • Inability to take care of or relate to her existing children or function normally in her other relationships (i.e. with a spouse, partner, other family member or friends)
  • A desire to immediately get pregnant and ‘replace’ the baby that was aborted, even when all the circumstances that led her to ‘choose abortion’ the first time are still in place.

So having a severe reaction immediately after an abortion can be classified as “PASS” and not just ‘normal feelings’. What can also be described as PASS is when a woman has the problems listed above, and they continue after the abortion for months, and sometimes years.
Other PASS problems could include short and/or long term problems with:

  • emotions, and dealing with emotional issues
  • struggles with depression
  • continued suicidal thoughts or attempts
  • anxiety and panic disorder
  • addictions of all kinds
  • difficulty sleeping and sleeping problems
  • disturbing dreams and/or nightmares
  • problems with phobias, or increase in severity of existing phobias
  • eating disorders
  • “replacement baby” syndrome
  • repeated unplanned pregnancies with additional abortions
  • repeated unplanned pregnancies carried to term
  • “atonement marriage”, where the woman marries the partner from the abortion, to help justify the abortion
  • trouble with relationships and dealing with partners
  • distress at the sight of other pregnant women, other people’s babies and children
  • inability to deal with or socialize with other pregnant women, other people’s babies and children
  • codependence and inability to make decisions easily
  • problems with severe and disproportionate anger
  • work and school problems (unable to function normally)
  • problems bonding with and caring for existing children or new babies
  • distress and problems with later pregnancy
  • added emotional issues and problems when dealing with future infertility or other physical complications resulting from the abortion.
  • unhealthy obsession with excelling at work or school, to justify the abortion

For more details about PASS, see:

  • The PASS Quiz
  • Frequently asked questions about PASS (includes stages and symptoms)
  • My “PMDD real and PASS not?” article

Some PASS problems can be severely disruptive to a woman’s life, and PASS can trouble her for months and even years after her abortion. The good news is that women can recover from PASS, can learn to heal from their abortion, and can go on to have happy, healthy productive lives. Women are usually afraid or embarrassed to even admit to having an abortion, let alone talk to anyone else about problems she might be having. Women are encouraged to think it is ‘their fault’ if they have trouble after an abortion, and that the abortion itself had nothing to do with how she feels, and that PASS is just some ‘anti-choice myth’.

It’s interesting how if a man goes off to a war, and comes back with “PTSS” (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), we don’t ‘blame the man’, and ‘protect’ the war, we admit it was the war that caused PTSS. We don’t refuse to help the man, and belittle him or invalidate his pain by saying he had ‘previous psychological problems’, or other issues in his life that caused the PTSS, and we don’t tell him that what he is struggling with “doesn’t exist” – we admit it was the whole stress and experience of war, and we help him, support him, allow him a name for his experience and treat him to help him recover. Yet when a woman has an abortion, and is traumatized by the whole experience, and develops “PASS” (Post Abortion Stress Syndrome), people are quick to ‘blame the woman’, and “protect abortion”, and claim there’s no way the abortion could have caused this, the woman must have had pre-existing problems, and it’s ‘her fault’ she is suffering. And the woman is left alone to suffer, with no help, treatment, support or a name for her experience. The fierce war between people who have differing views on the legality of abortion has turned into a war that is hurting women, as people go out of their way to minimize women’s problems after an abortion, and “blame the woman” for any trouble she is having. I am in the middle with my views, as I believe that abortion should remain legal and safe, and that every woman has the right to make her own choices concerning her body and her life. However, people need to know that Post Abortion Stress Syndrome is a real medical issue, and can cause serious emotional or physical complications after an abortion.

  • Chairperson —

    Herbert H. Haft (CEO)

  • President —

    R. Keith Green

  • Employees —

    3,700

  • D.C.-Area Employees —

    1,500

  • Developments:

    A recent settlement tentatively accepted by Herbert H. Haft to leave his positions at Dart and all its subsidiaries could have a profound impact on Dart and its companies. Trak Auto is no exception.

    Dart’s executive committee, which has been battling to remove the Hafts from positions of control at the company, needs desperately to raise money to pay for the agreements it has negotiated, and many industry experts believe the company will begin selling off its subsidiaries.

    Trak may be a particularly appealing company for Dart to sell because the “aftermarket” for automobile parts and accessories has been sluggish all year, dragging down the sales and profits of many industry players, including Trak. The pace of consolidation has increased in the auto parts business as a result, prompting analysts to argue that Trak would fit well into the operations of one of its competitors.

    Yet Trak’s own sluggish sales and declining profits also could undermine a possible sale. If Dart’s main goal is to make money from its divestiture, it must be concerned about getting a good price, and Dart officials say the chain’s weakening financial results may mean they won’t be able to get as much as they want for Trak.

    At its peak in 1993, Trak Auto operated 333 stores, but it has been closing smaller, less profitable outlets and replacing them with larger superstores. The company operates three store formats now, under the names Trak Auto, SuperTrak and SuperTrak Warehouse—the biggest and newest of the three. Last year was the first year since 1993 that the company increased its store base, with a net gain of 10 locations.

    Despite the sluggish economy for auto parts and the uncertain future of its parent company, Trak is not holding back on its expansion. The company plans to open 15 to 25 more stores in the coming year.
