We were unable to secure a high bid on the 1936 Packard in Maryland. The bidding ended at $58,200 plus buyer’s premium. There where a few others who where quite surprised at the final result – higher than anticipated.

Since my ideal car for the event would be an open car I registered to bid on the car. When the car was rolled through the auction block the bidding went too high too fast and I was out before I even knew it.
