Gooding and Company Headed to Amelia Island

If you have the time and the finances, then I recommend getting down to Amelia Island, FL on the 8th of March. Gooding & Company, a premier auction house that deals in vintage, rare, classic, and sportscars, will be taking bids on some of the finest automobiles ever built. Even if a $3.5 million Porsche is as beyond your reach, the trip will be worth it just to see the cars. You’d also have a chance to enjoy Florida’s winter warmth before it turns into summer’s unbearable heat. Cars to be displayed include the following: 1957 Triumph TR3 Roadster 1963 Ford GT40 1966 Ferrari 275 GTS 1969 Ferrari 365 GTC 1955 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible (my personal favorite) 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Alloy Gullwing 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Gooding & Company leads the world in organizing both auctions and private sales of highly desirable collectible automobiles. In 2012 they orchestrated the sale of a 1936 Mercedes Benz 540 K Special Roadster for $11.77 million. They also auctioned off a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione for $11.275 million and 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa Prototype for $16.39 million. Amelia Island is the southernmost of a series of barrier islands that stretch across the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. It was first settled by the French in 1562, and has passed through the hands of the Spanish, British, Mexican, Southern Confederate, and United States governments since. It was named after King George II’s daughter Amelia in the 1700s. Today, Amelia Island is best known for its annual shrimp, jazz, and film festivals. Golf course and tennis courts exist in abundance, as do fine arts venues and upscale hotels and boutiques.
