The Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction

Sellers come to these events to make scads of money, buyers come to find bargains. In the middle is the auctioneer trying to strike a balance. They work sellers to remove a reserve not yet met, and work bidders to stay in the game and buy that car.

The Toronto Auctions may not be the cream of the car auction world but buyers notice every flaw and mistake. Something like bad door gaps would take a seller percieved $20,000 car and turn it into a realistic $5,000 car.





Results from the Auction ranged from $178,750 for a 1969 Chevy Camaro ZL-1, to $1,210 for a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420 SEL. There were some "regular" cars in the mix. I had thought I should have come here first before buying my regular car. "Regular" cars went cheap.

There was a special lot for sale by the Pink Slips Women's Car Club. It was a remote control BMW Kiddy Car, in pink. They fundraise pretty much all of the time.

There were also vendors, Jim Roseborough was there with his Transport Books site. Service clubs were in attendance with their own raffle cars. I do apologise, I did not get pictures.

But I did get plenty of other pictures. Enjoy!

Do You Have A Gilt Complex?

Perhaps you can scratch that itch with this 1958 100-Six Goldie Roadster.

On offer on ebay, with a "Buy It Now" of US$ 1,000,000 is this 1958 100-6 trimmed in gold plate. It was trimmed out in gold, with an equally opulant interior for the 1958 Earls Court.

Gold trim, Ivory wheel, Kid Upholsery, and much more this was trimmed out to Sultan and Maharaja tastes.

More can be found in Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car, September 2010, and more recently on Hemmings blog this previous March
