Here are some more shots form the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction from last week. The gentleman standing next me asked if I'd seen this 1930 Duesenberg J Dual-Cowl Phaeton. He added "it's a doozy". And So it is, especially after it sold for a mere $880,000.00. Yikes!
I love it's rather delicate looking hood ornament!
Another doozy in my book was this Austin Princess A 135 Hearse from 1956. It was owned by John Lennon. He drove it and modified it and used it in his 1971 movie "Imagine".
They had a display of the original ownership papers with John Lennon's signature on it. The new owner who paid $159,500.00 for the car will get those papers along with the car.
Another rare beauty was this 1933 Auburn 12 161A Salon Phaeton Convertible. The description said it was one of the rarest produced and set many speed records in it's day. This one sold for $165,000.00.
I think my favorite part of the Auburn was this gorgeous hood ornament!
