We asked Bret Voelkel, owner of Air Ride Technologies, what he was hoping to get for the Mustang, and he felt $50,000 was a reasonable target. The bidding stalled out at $30,000, but after some work by the auctioneer, it ratcheted up to a final sale price of $45,000. Not quite $50,000, but it was close enough to make Bret happy. The ending price means Air Ride got $41,400 and the buyer paid $49,500. Do the math and Barrett-Jackson's commission came out to $8,100. Ouch!
