I’m looking forward to seeing you in Scottsdale.
Last year, I missed the desert action for the first time in three decades.
But not this year.
I’ll see you first at the SCM Insider’s Seminar on Thursday morning, at 9:30 am in the Gooding & Company Auction Tent. “Priced to Sell, Determining Value in an Uncertain Market” is the topic. Donald Osborne, Steve Serio, Carl Bomstead and I will be there to share our thoughts and answer your questions.

The collector car year is just about to start in a big way, with Kissimmee already underway this week and Scottsdale kicking off with Barrett-Jackson on Saturday. We’ll know soon just how much McQueen’s Mustang is worth, and what the trends are for 2020 out of the desert.
But before all that, it’s time to take a second and think about what the new year can bring for you and your cars. What are your new Read More
Mecum Auctions is returning to the City of Roses for the second year in a row — and they’re bringing some special Shelby and muscle cars.
This year’s auction is on June 16-17 at the Portland Expo Center, just a short drive from SCM World Headquarters.
Last year Mecum sold 297 of 478 cars (62%), totaling $9,316,726.
A 1965 Shelby GT350 sold for $335,500 for the high sale. Mecum will no doubt look to improve those numbers this time around.
It’s a sunny Saturday morning and, from behind the wheel of my 1971 MGB Mk II, the storefronts of Detroit’s M-1 Woodward Avenue peel past my periphery.
With my head cocked back and a big grin on my face, I am fully engaged in the buttery smoothness of the roadster’s boisterous four-cylinder, the enthrallingly tight and click-y gearbox shifter, and copious amounts of wind in my hair.
Although I am reveling in my momentary motoring splendor, such moments are few Read More

A very original 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K with a coachbuilt roof added in period is one of the star cars for RM Sotheby’s January 16-17 Arizona Auction.
The car, which has been in one family’s ownership since 1969, has never been restored. The car has been parked in a garage for decades.
“It’s always exciting when we can bring a car with such a great story and family ownership fresh to the market,” said Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, RM Sotheby’s. Read More
