Rick Cole’s was actually the first Monterey collector car auction way back in 1986. He recognized the sales opportunity presented by the throngs of enthusiasts and collectors in town for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Subsequently, a Rick Cole sale was held every year into the ‘90s. The auction returned in 2014 and is now conducted in an unorthodox format, with bids coming online, but with the cars organized in one location for viewing. It has typically been a smaller sale, and this year there are 43 cars available on August 19. Following are five to look out for.
