Chevrolet dealer's old, undriven cars auctioned off

Five auction companies sold 726 cars during the annual weeklong gathering of car fans in Monterey, Carmel, and Pebble Beach. The total value of all vehicles sold was up 14% over 2012, according to Hagerty Insurance, which tracks classic car values. These auction companies are good at finding the cars that they think will fit the audience, said McKeel Hagerty, founder of Hagerty Insurance. With the weeks events drawing a huge international audience, its a perfect opportunity for the auction houses to capitalize, Hagerty said. PHOTOS: Highlights from Pebble Beach car week Five auction companies held sales this year: RM Auctions, Gooding & Co., Bonhams, Mecum, and Russo & Steele. Demonstrating their increasing ability to match cars with the target audience, 71 vehicles sold for $1 million or more. Thats up from 57 in 2012 and 31 in 2011, according to Hagerty. RM Auctions was the big winner among the sellers. It sold a rare 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T. Spider for $27.5 million on Saturday night.

Despite Frets, Auto Auctions Could Interconnect

Not all auctions operate the same. Bob McConkey, president of DAA Northwest auction, adds: Weve cooperated on standards, but not on selling cars. On the surface it sounds do-able, but the consignment community doesnt realize how complex this is. Were working on it, though. Creating a linked system incorporating all the processes of individual auctions houses is an awesome undertaking, Pons says. I get what consigners want. But come to the party with more than just a wish list. Come with checkbooks, because this will cost a lot of money. Its always about money, says James McIver, CEO of American Auto Auction Group. That includes the sheer competitiveness of business, he says. Can I walk into Sams Club and use my Costco card? Do I want to build up other auctions at the expense of mine? Of course not.

In 10 seasons of racing, the team picked up 68 wins using cars painted in the distinctive blue and white that honored the Scottish flag. Prior to Londons auction, all eight Ecurie vehicles had been owned by collector Dick Skipworth, who also refurbished the Commer http://repossessed4446.skyrock.com transport truck to its original condition. Bidding on this truck was intense Sunday afternoon and lasted nearly 20 minutes. Its $2.94 million final price makes the Commer truck the most expensive historic commercial vehicles ever sold at auction, Bonhams said. In addition to the Ecurie vehicles, two other notable cars drew plenty of attention Sunday afternoon. A 1964 Facel Vega Facel II originally owned by Beatle Ringo Starr sold for $552,000. The famed drummer bought the French coupe in the same year that the Beatles popularity was exploding internationally. Facel was a short-lived brand that built around 2,900 vehicles from 1954 to 1964. The cars were on par with Rolls Royce in their day, and Starr bought his Facel II -- with a massive Chrysler V-8 stuffed under the hood -- for the equivalent of $68,000. Also exchanging hands was the Benetton-Cosworth Ford B194 Formula 1 Racing car that sold for $1.01 million. This fully-operational machine was raced by F1 legend Michael Schumacher in 1994 to his first of seven world championships, Bonhams said.

Bidders and gawkers crowded shoulder-to-shoulder for the auction in a muddy field just west of Pierce, a town of about 1,800. Spectators in helicopters and airplanes circled overhead as the lead auctioneer, Yvette VanDerBrink, inched down the auction line on a wooden platform hauled by a pickup. Event organizers said an estimated 10,000 people traveled from as far as Norway and Brazil to see the sale in person, and more than 3,800 had registered online to bid at an auction website by mid-day Saturday. The auction of more than 500 old cars and pickups was expected to continue on Sunday. Organizers said they hadn't yet totaled the bids for the roughly 50 most high-profile, low-mileage classic cars and trucks, which were auctioned on Saturday.
