This Friday in the 17545 there is something that never happened before and I have a feeling may never happen again…ever.

In the wake of recent acts of God and other conditions it looks like the earth, moon and stars are lining up to create a once in a car-time happening.  I have 850 units that will be sold, at one auction, in one day.  The mix is unbelievable, the volume is a new world record which I can’t imagine will ever happen again and it looks like the market is hungry for merch.

Dealers are calling and coming in to my office from everywhere.  I sold over 200 at my door today and could of sold more.  But you know me, I love the hammer and the block so I got out of Dodge early so I have piles of merch for everybody that pays attention Friday.  I am the worst cat in the world when it comes to predicting things,

I want to thank all of our customers all over the world for your business, loyalty and trust in R Hollenshead and our affiliates.

This is rounding out to be our biggest year ever and I have no business without all of you.  I truly and deeply appreciate it. 

This week we will have 800-900 units of the craziest stuff you will see anywhere.  We are already packed with impossible to find merch and we have all week to pile up more.

Two things. 

Car Fax does it again.  They crush their only paying customer…the dealer.  Take a look at any car you own that is registered in the states that had a storm and they have branded all of your inventory as child molesters.  That’s right they think they might be child molesters.  They aren't sure, they heard that they are and have no way to know if it’s true, but figure them for child molesters. 

That is what they have suggested on millions of cars in our inventory, sent absolutely disastrous gossip out to the world that based on your address all of your cars are now worth $10,000 less per unit than they were yesterday…this equals billions of devaluation on our inventory…no cost or risk to Car False, whoops, I mean Car Fax.
