I remember my first trip to Monterey Car Week in 2001, and going to the Bonhams auction and discovering a variety of cars at various price points, everything from full classics and classic sports cars to wonderous supercars and race cars.
Now celebrating its 20th auction on this northern California peninsula, Bonhams still has a variety of cars on its docket — though the price points have changed a bit.
To put it plainly, the cars on offer Friday at Bonhams sale at The Quail are possibly the finest I have seen the company offer in Monterey, with top-tier collector cars taking the stage. There are still a few “affordable” cars, but things certainly have been kicked up a notch or two. The cars are nothing short of spectacular, making the job of picking just a few that I would love to have all the more difficult.
Just to warn you in advance, few if any of the cars I am picking are what might be considered “affordable,” but they are all cars I would love to have in my garage.
