Monterey Car Week-Day 3; Classic Car Auctions

Preview of the Classic Car Auctions

Day Three in Monterey we kept ourselves busy previewing some of the classic car auctions houses; RM Sotheby’s, Russo & Steele, and Gooding & Co.

First stop was at RM Sotheby’s held at the Portola Hotel in downtown Monterey on Fisherman’s Wharf. This is a beautiful hotel, a stunning venue, and a terrific assemblage of cars including the Pinnacle Portfolio, a collection of iconic European sports and race cars.

At Russo & Steele’s the inventory tends to be American and European muscle cars. The display lot isn’t very elegant compared to RM’s, however one can get a thorough look at the vehicles. Gooding & Company is one of the best auction houses, both in inventory, display and location. The cars are high end and quality restored, and the display is mostly kept under a large tent centered in Pebble Beach on scenic 17 mile Drive.

A hint as to how to tell an alloy Ferrari 275 from a steel 275 is that the chrome trim extends past the window to the vents. On a steel Ferrari 275 the trim stops at the window
