    I took these pics of the dashboards of the five Forward Look Collection cars, just so I could post them here for you to enjoy. Beautiful sculpture!

    BTW, the Lot did NOT sell at a bid of $585K.

    Bet the first 2 were 57 and 58 Chrysler's and the last three are 60-63. Just going by the steering wheels and the 2 speed transmissions.

    Those are all Imperials. The "fleet" probably.

    Yeah, I was surprised to see that they were being sold as "a lot" only. Seems the owner would have had a much better chance of selling some or all of them individually and netting more money? But who knows, I'm certainly no expert on auction strategy.

    That was an odd strategy. Even if you do them all sepaerate with reserves, you at least get a benchmark for the next auction and can haggle post auction with each bidder. Almost sounds like a bull headed seller who wouldn’t listen to the auctioneer.

    That’s what I think whenever I keep seeing the same old overpriced cars at the $25 car corrals - $25 for a premium park spot and you can tell the wife you tried.

    but a Mecum auction? Even midweek would be $500/car anyway plus transport....
