Hello back.

We did the auction tour at the Bonham's auction yesterday. They have some tasty (and affordable) offerings, including a few very nice Triumphs. (TR-4, TR-4a, TR-6) They are also offering up Martin Swig's (founder of Bonham's) personal Toyota Corona--- total time capsule car.

Of course they also have high-end drool-worthy cars, like the very original 289 Cobra in a beautiful blue with red interior, a Ferrari 250 Europa GT with an alloy body, and Ferrari 275 with LeMans history.

So far so good! Although it rained here yesterday. Yes, it rained in Scottsdale. Today is beautiful and 70ish!

Keep an eye out for our Facebook posts--- I know David has been a shutterbug.

I think we may have a demographic disconnect between the "Classic Motorsports" enthusiast and dissemination of the information through "Facebook".

First to say "You suck"!

I would love to be there to possibly buy some of Ron Pratt's petroliana.

I want to agree with that statement, but my mother-in-law is like my biggest Facebook fan.

But yes, photos have been posted to FB. You can find some others on my Instagram account. You can also find some under the #grmphoto hashtag. Of course we'll have some magazine coverage.

Been a great trip, and the auction tours were fun. Hopefully our guests enjoyed them, too.
