This will be one of those auctions where it makes sense for the actual buyers to inspect the cars themselves, rather than thumbing through a glossy book smelling of high-quality German ink mailed out by the auction house and letting their proxies do the bidding on auction day. Even though the auction house has done a good job of presenting the lots in the online auction, the very nature of these cars demands an up-close inspection if any serious money is to trade hands. There are definitely some less-than-serious lots here, such as late-'70s compact hatches that have been sitting in a field, but the cream of the crop definitely deserves a first-hand look, even if just to try to remember the smell of cars that haven't been touched in 40 years. Our auction reporting won't be coming to you in Smell-O-Vision (Sony is still working on that), but even if you won't be attending the sale, we'll give you a complete rundown of all the important cars...and some less-than-important cars.
