Proposed: Three building auction complex, with hotel on 156 acres South of Indianapolis, to serve the 5- state area of all auction needs.
Inside the Car Auction Center, cars and pickup trucks are on railed carriages. 4 cars to a carriage that turns one revolution per minute allowing buyers to see the inside of the vehicle as it makes its way past the audience. Carriages are pulled by an electric tow motor. The length of time for each car is 4 minutes or less depending on the crowd. Approximately 120 cars and trucks will be auctioned each day depending on how fast the bidding is going.
A 50' x 80' patio above the car entrance tunnel to the auction room can be used for parties with food licenses to serve barbecue. This will be provided free of charge for those in the antique car shows when the auction center is not being used on Holidays, etc.
Car Auction Center - Seating capacity is 1014 per side.
Outside Auction - Seating capacity is 507 in bleachers
North West elevation, showing a parcel view of the car auction house, and tunnel.
From the tunnel floor or the arena floor to the top of the first floor it is 18. The tunnel is 50 wide and extends 85 from the arena wall on both ends of the auction house. The purpose of the tunnel is to dry off the cars or trucks if there is a rain storm or to brush off the snow if there is a snow storm during the auction. This will allow a greater price to be brought with a clean vehicle and to be presented for viewing. Also all the noise of cleaning the vehicles will not be heard in the auction room.
Above the tunnel is a patio type place for a get together after an auction on both ends of the building. The patio will be built in the same style as the other part of the building and will be enclosed having a 42 wall between the columns. This 50 x 85 patio would be great for a barbecue sponsored by one of the restaurants from the mall for many types of car functions. The restaurants from the mall could take turns in serving different functions so all will have a piece of the pie. There is a unlimited type of functions surrounding cars, vintage car show, classic cars, muscle cars, all types of models, and the list goes on and on. So why not take advantage of all the functions and make this the in place to be every day of the week!
Before the cars enter the arena the doors are opened the hood is raised, and the trunk is opened so the whole car is exposed for viewing. The cars and or trucks are on rotating platforms 2 to a car carrier that rotates 1 revolution a minute as they proceed from one end of the arena to the other. The doors and hood are not closed until after they leave the arena so not to make a lot of noise or to disturb the buyers in the arena.
There will be no phone bids to the auction house, no mail in bids, the bids will come from the audience and or a person financially qualified to place a bid for a third party. That person is liable for the bid and he or she collects the monies from the third party with their established commission, and the auction house has the money in the cash drawer at the end of the day. No bad checks that stay in the bottom of the drawer forever.
The qualified representative for the third party will submit a financial statement to the auction house as to the bank line of credit limit, and he or she cannot exceed that amount unless arranged for beforehand. People who want to bid on an object and cannot attend the auction will have a group of approved representatives to choose from to do your bidding. If the client is not happy with his purchase after receiving it, it will be up to the client and the person that represented him to either put the object back into another auction, or retain it. The auction house has nothing to do with this transaction.
At auction houses today there are items that are never paid for, and the seller wants his money after the sale. Now this causes controversy that an auctioneer does not want.
The seller has an option to reenter the item into another auction or retrieve it. Some bidders place numerous mail in bids at an auction, and only pay for the ones he wants. With the auction flex it is automatically removed from your credit card at the end of the auction if you win the bid. This is another hole that is plugged up. However there is a lot of resentment to this type of bidding paying 18% for nothing. This will not happen in our auctions for someone who does not pay, and putting the burden on all the patrons who do.
All of the things we have observed over the years will be incorporated into our system for a more enjoyable experience at an auction. Let us say you spend $20,000 at an auction. Guess what? You receive a one nights' room free at the hotel. The free hotel room excludes car, sheriff sales, tractor trailers, earth moving machinery, and large objects that start at a large amount.
This building will be the first building to be built because this is the auction that will bring in the most revenue. The rail cars will be loaded a day prior to the sale so prospective buyers have a chance to see and examine the ones they are interested in. Not all cars will be loaded on the rail road cars and those cars waiting to be loaded can be examined prior to sale.
One day a month could be devoted to motor cycles. Indian, Harley Davidson, and foreign makes could round out a full day of motor cycles. This could bring in motor cycle clubs and only the good ones.
There is so much to write about this building that it will carry over into two more segments.
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
And Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:
And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and lo the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
The Sin of Lots Daughters
And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our farther is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
Come, let us make our farther drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our farther.
Genesis 19:26 32
