The Car Auction Sale Was A Mixed Bag

It was a beautiful day for a car auction in Connecticut but the times and the cash have changed the desire for such beautiful and expensive toys. Close to half my picks did not sell but that didn't keep the crowd from enjoying a spectacular June Day amidst such beautiful automobiles. Here are the results.

A minor note on the lack of posts this past week plus. The back problems threw me off my game more than I imagined and sitting at the computer has been a task but enough with all that, lets see what these fabulous cars brought at auction


Bonhams:"The collection of Rhode Island based collector the late Ted Leonard will lead our annual auction at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in Connecticut, on Sunday June 7th. Built over a number of years, Mr. Leonard prided himself on acquiring cars that had been owned by celebrities or had starred on the ‘Silver Screen’.

Footnote - The Greenwich Concours d’Elegance was established and is run by Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom of Greenwich, CT and is considered one of the top ranked events of its kind in the United States. 2009 celebrates its 14th year of paying tribute to American and European vintage motorcars, motorcycles, boats and planes, a must for enthusiasts of all ages it is even listed in the book of 1000 places to see before you die!"

I know I should like all the glamorous cars but honestly? The Ford Falcon wagon gets my vote. Very Donna Reed. Which isn't a bad thing.
