    If you haven't heard what happened you can follow this link.......

    http://www.azfamily.com/news/Tents-collapse-at-luxury-car-auction-due-to-severe-storm-82320467.html

    I was there buying cars and knew this was going to happen when I was walking around, watching the tents move. As we were leaving, going to the RM Auction we saw 5 police cars and a fire truck coming in. We knew that they were going to shut down the auction. As soon as we got to the Biltmore Resort for the RM Auction, we heard on the radio that the tents were going down. We had two car's under there and got extremly lucky with only a cracked fender on our ERA 427 Cobra Replica. Our '32 Ford was untouched. These weren't as lucky.......

    Tent blew off and took all the poles, straps, etc with it then started bouncing off the cars, all night long.

    most of those cars just have cosmetic damage

    a couple of new feders and you're set.

    the a-pillar damage and such is more difficult though
