RM Auctions offered a bespoke sale of John Staluppi’s “Cars of Dreams” Museum in North Palm Beach, Fla., on Dec. 1, 2012. All but three of the automotive consignments were American vehicles, and two-thirds came from the 1950s and 1960s. Additionally, numerous interesting automobilia and museum-related lots were offered, including several store facades, a life-size model of a Bob’s Big Boy diner, and an intensely ornate large-scale model train. In fact, the top sold lot overall was not a car, but a carousel. A 1918 Herschell-Spillman 32-foor unit sold for $460,000,including premium.
