  1. The Venue was awful, totally wrong for the car, and I was too stupid! Too soon we get old, too late we get smart!
  2. I wish I had the guts to say "no sale" when my Brewster Regent stalled at $100K at the Bonham's Greenwich sale!
  3. Hi, I don't have a LZOC Membership Roster. Can someone please look up my name and send me my Membership Number? PETER R ZOBIAN 171 Danville Pike SW PO BOX 795 Meadows of Dan, VA 24120 email: przobian@gmail.com Thank You! Peter Zobian
  4. Well, you certainly can't say this is a "soft" yellow!
  5. I would call the color of my car "soft" grey, certainly not "harsh" grey!
  6. The problem with Phantom 1 Rolls, as I see it, is that they are under-powered, slow, antiquarian, heavy, hard to drive and expensive to fix or maintain; but the Brewster bodies are beautiful so the car is caught in the middle. My 1930 Brewster bodied Convertible Coupe was bid only to $100K (after I put $10K into it) and went back to Gull Wing Motorcars who immediately sold it on for $140,000 with the auction photos I paid for!
  7. I agree that the Springfirld Rolls prices have been abysmal. But that car was handsome! I have put a photo of my Stephen Grebel Driving Light on.
  8. I want to sell a very scarce driving light that is left-over from my store, Vintage Automobilia, in Cambria, CA. It is a Stephen Grebel (Paris France) and it is in very good complete condition. Please PM me for more info. It's not cheap, but then, nothing is!
  9. i don't see this as a strong showing at all! This car should have brought $200K at least. Peter
  10. My car was a very nice and driveable Phantom 1 Regent Convertible Coupe by Brewster. It was bid to $100K by Peter Kumar and sold at Bonhams to Kumar even though there was a $125K reserve. I will never deal with Bonhams again. NEVER!
  11. UNFORTUNATELY, All classic Rolls-Royces (except Silver Ghosts) are down in price right now, with even open convertible coupe Phantom 1 cars bringing no more than $100K.
  12. I have noticed that Phantom 1 Rolls-Royces do not seem to do well at auction. Why is that? They are beautiful, and well made (if any thing, they are overbuilt). Perhaps they are not very driveable.
  13. Mark Smith's cars are always spectacular, and this one is no exception. He has great taste! Peter Zobian
  14. I wouldn't mind a 1926 T roadster with wire wheels and period speed equipment.
  15. Alsancle: Yes, I think Peter Kumar of Gullwing Motor Cars bought it back, and then sold it again.
