  RM Sotheby’s returned to the seafront Grimaldi Forum during the GP Historique week in Monaco. Located only a block from the GP circuit’s Portier corner, the music of historic GP cars is a delightful counterpoint to viewing and selling the cars in the auction.

RM’s Hershey auction at the AACA Hershey Region Fall Meet is a throwback, like it used to be before selling collector cars became a big business. It’s Fall in the Northeast. The air is crisp.

There were, it must be admitted, fifty No Reserve lots, but only five of fifty-nine lots with reserves failed to find new owners, a 91.5% sale rate […]
