    Monterey 2018: A different experience

    A week prior to Monterey Car Week, we booked one night at the Portola Hotel. Driving from our home in the SF Bay Area to Monterey on Saturday we made a stop at Canepa's in Scotts Valley, which is always a treat to see a few Porsche 959s. With our tour complete at Canepa's, we made our way to Mecum's and RM Sotheby's Auctions. Sunday morning was spent watching the auction cars being loaded onto trailers followed by my first trip to the Historic Races, which was my favorite experience over the weekend.

    On the GTX1, the bidding ended at $300K and Mecum had it on display for potential buyers to make an offer. Overall the energy level in the bidding room was much less than 2017 and many cars failed to meet their reserve price.
