The annual Corvair Parts Auction, conducted by the New Jersey Association of Corvair Enthusiasts, will take place on Saturday, February 17, indoors at Ashley's Auto Body on Hillside Avenue in Flanders, NJ. (We'll use the following Saturday, February 24, as a "snow date" if necessary.)
Free lunch! No admission charge! Read on.
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.
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.
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?
Now, what about that "Snow Date?" We will invoke the Snow Date only if the weather makes traveling difficult or if accumulated snow has rendered the Ashley's parking lot inaccessible. Generally speaking, you can assume that the event is "on," but if it is necessary to postpone we will get the word out via email, Facebook, and the club web site.
Ashley's Auto Body is located at 274 Hillside Avenue, Flanders, NJ 07836.
