Sun, Palm Trees and… Cars


Palm Beach, Florida, is a great place to be in March – and the Hagerty Travel Team was lovin’ it. The auction raked in a total of $35 million in sales – a major pot considering it’s only in its fourth year. Highlights included a Barrett Palm Beach record $1,728,000 for a 1947 Franay Bentley Mark VI; $572,400 for the #003 2005 Ford GT (which sale benefits the Carroll Shelby Children’s Foundation); $226,800 for a 2002 Ferrari 360 convertible owned by Dr. Phil; and $110,700 for a 2006 Cadillac CTS owned by legendary rock star Sir Paul McCartney.
