Sweet 8lb 6oz Baby Jesus, I'm pretty sure 25% of the world's Caribbeans are squirreled away in that building!

For anyone bored, we should collect the Vehicle Numbers and get them in the Registry before they disappear into the ether again.

Lot #3 is a shame. That was a clean car gone bad.

No bid yet on #184 Caribbean with the fender trim even from the bids on cars that need fender trim.

I know of two people who could use the doors on #51 flower car. If no bids by 11/15/21 I will call them.

one thing about this auction, its once in a life time opportunity ,little money and little ambition ,u can make few nice cars out of a few ,when u can get in to view the cars then the bidding will start,
i wont bid till i get to look at them, as far as getting them out, u just cant drag them ,no way guide them and u would tear up the wood floor they are on

Yes, it is a once in a lifetime chance. I bought a 55 Patty before the collection went to auction and fired it up this morning for the first time in at least 16 years. I am somewhat tired out from doing the happy dance.

Amazing collection. What is the background of C. Louis Abelove and how did he amass such an incredible collection?

There was at least one other 1956 with factory A/C but the description did not mention it.

If no one minds me asking, what are the chances of this becoming another 1977 Packard Crushathon if there are no takers? Thoughts are welcome. See attachment.

Wow, quite an effort and accomplishment on the spreadsheet. Kudos. As an aside the preparation for the auction represented the first time the number of cars was "officially" counted.

And yes, the fate of any remaining cars is dismal. Sad but true...
