Amelia Island

Well, we made the trip to the Goodings Amelia Island auction. Not because we’re flush but well, just because.

Basically, it was a Jerry Seinefeld event as he had 18 Porsches crossing the block. (!) All went for what I thought was a lot of money, but since the auction I’ve read that he sort of took a bath on some of the cars. Not sure but I’d expect the truth to lie somewhere in between. I can’t believe he didn’t have a carefully considered reserve on this stuff. A 1960 Beetle went for $110,000 so I’m guessing he wasn’t looking under the seat cushions in the hotel for lunch money.

There were other auctions that weekend and the concours which unfortunately I couldn’t attend but it was a few days of R&R in warm sunny weather which was just what I needed.

As we were walking up to the auction venue at the Omni Resort, there was an unexpected parade of vintage cars cruising by. It took me a minute to dig out my phone but I did catch a few.
