Dave, you were into some wild stuff. The good news? This sale will provide a lot of good information on just what the market thinks of some cars that don't have a lot of data, like these RADwood gems:

That's a really good point.

Here I was thinking that if you want to get into the auction game, this might be a good collection to start with since projected values aren't into the millions (of course, that could quickly change).

In reply to Colin Wood :

I have a feeling that these will, as a whole, go for quite cheaply. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I wonder whether RM Sotheby's is the right fit for these cars. Should be interesting to watch regardless.

So the Buick Century? Just a hair over $7k. Great money for an A-Body, but not near the estimate. Not a surprise.

The Buick LeSabre Wagon? It went for under what I estimated at $6,325. A good deal that I attribute to the lack of cleanliness.

See how your hoopties did here.

 

The bizarro Iacocca limos went for a hair over $2k each. That's extremely good money for ersatz luxury.
