Were is that info, how can we follow? With some cleaning that White could be on the lawn at Pebble Beach in the unrestored class.  Bob

Many of those prices realized yesterday for the advertising/signage are just down right comical.

About 30 years ago that 1914 Peerless with the fire truck engine in it was in Connecticut at Tunick Brothers scrap yard. A gentleman in Holland asked me to go an look at it for him... it wasn't advertised as having the wrong engine.  I always wondered what became of it. It was about the biggest car I've ever seen.

Incredibly cool car !   And pre-1915, good horsepower, nice shape, and great patina as they say.

The Peerless in the sale bid to 60K, though appeared to be a no-sale and I did not catch why (perhaps it was just on display and added to sale as owner had no place else to store it, time to move it on, or ...).

Dave Tunic had a somewhat less than stunning reputation, and that Peerless may have been one of two fire engine equipped vehicles that were stuffed in a railroad car and shipped to him after the funds were safely in the sellers hands. Payback is a bitch, I never knew what the seller received from Dave before this gotcha was shipped.

The 1899 Knox did well at 180K against a 140-180 estimate - it paid to have it running for the sale !

 

The 1905 Delaunay-Belleville did well at 78K against a 40-50 estimate, but these cars do have a fan club and typically sell in this range or higher. 

 

I thought the 1923 Brewster Knight was a little on the light side at 32K against a 40-60 estimate - they are rare and have always seemed to have a "fan club" and been pretty sought after. 

 

There was a lot of discussion about the 1928 Pierce Arrow Cabriolet and it did ok at 40K against a 25-40 estimate (given age of restoration and non-running  matched to colors) - I would say an well bought car (hard to get an open CCCA car in this price range).

 

I thought the 1926 Renault too low at 32K against a 50-100K estimate - super cool car, but perhaps wrong market for it as intimidating to most people in US.

 

I thought the 1927 Stutz Boattail a near steal at 52K against a 80-120K estimate.

 

The 1931 Detroit Electric did well, though also not surprising as Electrics have been strong for quite some time now. 

 

There was also a lot of discussion about the 1932 Nash Convertible Sedan and it did pretty well at 75K against an 80-100K estimate (again given age of restoration and colors - also assumed non-running) - I would say a fair price. 

 

The 1934 Mercedes-Benz 290 Cabriolet D sold for well 105K against an 30K-60K estimate, but you could not find one with this much potential for 60K if you were running around waving 60K in your hand while screaming fire (I would say they were proper in keeping estimate low via it needing restored, but certainly was going to hit the high plus).

Bentley, pair of Alvis, Lagonda....all selling well below estimates....wrong crowd?  Other than that prices seem fairly good, Nash is a great car in horrible colors, colors don't help that Pierce either....

Perhaps wrong audience on the Alvis' and the Lagonda - cool cars, but not for the faint at heart mechanically if your intention is to drive them.  Perhaps/wondering if they were just not marketed well enough individually to signal the right people that they were available.   And, great cars for the US Concours circuit, though the popularity definitely is more so in Europe.  The MGVA seemed to have a bit of the same issue too.

The 1936 Bentley is a super cool body style being pillarless, but just depends on condition of the car and again a handful of car mechanically (I would have to see it in person).  I have had the pair of RR 25/30 cars and the RR PI, so it does not intimidate me, but nevertheless I did not find working on them to be much fun either.

Was the estimate too hopeful for the Cadillac limousine? The interior obviously needed a lot of work.

65-110K as the estimate on the 1938 Cadillac V-16 (with sale price of 65K) - by the way, a cloth interior is still pretty expensive to do (only difference I see is cost of leather to cloth and perhaps 5%).
