A Vintage Car Orgy Is Coming and All the Legends Are Gonna Be There
Hyperventilation allowed, encouraged
Some men spend their entire lives collecting cars. They travel far and wide, picking through remote barns and far-flung junkyards in search of the perfect restoration candidate.
Then there are men who go about things a little more efficiently. And the Gooding & Company’s upcoming Scottsdale auction is a place for those guys.
Want a 1960s V12 Ferrari? Done. How about a DB-series Aston Martin? Check. And for fun, shall we throw in a Mercedes Gullwing, and maybe a Shelby Cobra? Well, they’ve got those too.
The annual multi-million-dollar gorge also includes a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, a ’64 Aston Martin DB5, a ’55 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and a ’64 Shelby 289 Cobra.
The top dog, is, unsuprisingly, the Ferrari, with pre-sale estimates skimming the $3 million mark. The DB5 is also a rare catch, one of only 220 examples made in a left-hand drive setup. And that Gullwing, a single-owner steed, has just a tad over 31,000 miles on the odometer.
Not to mention, uh, the freaking gullwings:
And should your pockets run deep as the the Pacific, there’s also a Lancia Stratos, a ’69 American Motors AMX/3 prototype, a ’65 Ferrari 500 Superfast and another 275 GTB for the taking. Your only cares in the world afterward will be garage space and beating off all your neighboors as they appear — slobbering and zombie-like — in your front yard each morning hoping to catch a glimpse of your collection.
