So far, sales of new luxury vehicles more than kept pace with the over-all market, although high-priced passenger cars have fared better than expensive trucks.
We also still have an interest in classic cars. This weekend there are a couple of classic-car auctions of note. One will be held in Novi, Mich., at the Novi Expo Center.
The other will be a live auction in Santa Clara, California, sponsored by eBay Motors. Why would eBay -- which has sold thousands of used vehicles online -- go offline to auction about 300 classic cars? To raise brand awareness, silly.
