Quite sad for sure, but expected.

At first I was kinda upset that they did not release much info prior to the auction, I know three Saab techs up that way that would have gone. After finding out how the "auction" was setup and how they ushered people though in set groups, it would have been difficult to get anything good. From a guy who went, they put people into groups (maybe as they arrived or signed up) then walked each through. If you placed a verbal bid on an item you saw and it met their reserve, it was yours right then and there. Regardless if someone in the following group would offer more $$.

After seeing a list of the stuff for auction, wasnt too much stuff of real interest...although I would have loved to buy the "SAAB" sign from the building.
