Indications are that Bonhams is pleased with the results from their first Amelia Island Car Auction held at the Fernandina Beach Golf Course this past week. According to ClassicandPerformanceCars.com which covers “the biggest auctions from around the world,” a record breaking price of 1.76 million dollars was received on a Cord L-29.
The ClassicandPerformance.com quotes Rupert Banner, Bonhams Motoring Department’s VP of Business Development, who said, “We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The community of Fernandina Beach, particularly the mayor, city council and the folks at Micah’s Place were tremendously supportive and welcoming and it made for a very conducive and enjoyable event.”
