The annual Bonham & Butterfield Collector's Car auction happened today. I had to leave early, but got a few new shots.

First the crowd. You can just make out the auctioneer at the right. You're looking over a green 1923 Bentley 3 liter that went for a mere $180,000. (The bid came by phone from LA -- rumors said it was Jay Leno). Sorry, I don't know the bike... something European, if I remember right.

Another view of the crowd, a tad overexposed. Follow straight up from the steering wheel on the toy-looking racer and you'll see the auctioneer at work. To his right are auction workers on the phone. Over top of the darker blue 1971 Maserati in the foreground you'll see a 1948 Tucker.

This 1930 American-built Rolls Royce went surprisingly low, around $22,000, if I remember right... less than a Volvo and a heck of a lot more distinctive. Before this auction, I didn't know that Rolls Royces were built in Springfield, Massachusetts for a bunch of years.

1926 Dodge station wagon. Dang if I didn't chop off the front wheel. The entire passenger compartment is ALL wood, inside and out.

A real sidelight. Really. That's what it is. Liked the pattern... and the camera-headed photographer visible in the sidelight...

Great pictures DGehman. I realy like the station wagon. It must have beenfun driving around in it years ago, don't you think. Those old cars sure had alot of character.

Nice shots DGehman. Like Bob, the Wagon is my favorite. It reminds me of the old Railway express vans that used to deliver around here in the early '50's.
