Hits and misses from Bonhams’ Carroll Shelby sale


As a longtime Shelby fanatic, I felt like a kid in a candy store at Bonhams’ Greenwich Concours auction. The highlight, of course, was a collection of 22 cars from Carroll Shelby’s personal stash. Offered at no reserve, the cars were not in the best condition, or the rarest, or most valuable (one observer said, “Looks like they’re selling the stuff they found outside or in the corners”). But they were all from the man himself, and that was a value wildcard that nobody could predict.
