The auction boasted an impressive lineup, featuring 2,016 collectible vehicles, all sold with No Reserve, totaling $200.9 million. Additionally, 1,180 pieces of authentic automobilia fetched $6.7 million. Notably, $1 million was raised for charity through the sale of four special vehicles.

Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

If you live to be 100, you got it made. Very few people die past that age.

I never feel more alone than when I’m trying to put sunscreen on my back.

I own a 1990 ZR 1 Corvette and had issues with it shutting off while on a drive as well as a secondary issue of a lack of engine horsepower. After several months of having the car looked at by two purportedly Corvette specialist shops, issues remained unresolved. Fortunately, I discovered Corvette Mike who promptly diagnosed and repaired the issues. My Corvette has never run better. Richard Simpson of its service department was extremely professional in keeping me apprised at every step of the service process. Excellent service!
