Butch, John, Ed and I volunteered on Friday. We stayed all day and had a number of rides. Some were great and other frustrating due to unmarked shift patterns and dead batteries.
Here are some of our rides. Note my bright red Studebaker suspenders.
In addition to the Friday crew, Vince, Bethany, Hank, Ed E. and Steve also participated. Hank, who used to run this web site, came down from Jacksonville.
Some of the interesting cars that crossed the block included a ’57 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing which hammered down at $1,085,000 (plus 10% auction fee) with the proceeds going to benefit the Jackson, Michigan YMCA. There was another Mercedes roadster which went for $!.4 million.
One of the other cars that surprised me was a ’63 Volkswagon Deluxe “23 Window” Microbus with a high bid of $170,000. It did not sell.
Here are some of the pictures from Saturday:
The Packard was just too pretty to pass up.
