    I went to the Sotheby's preview today in NYC. The Jobs Z8 is in nice but not concours condition (fogged headlight, light road rash), while the BMW/Motorola cell phone is presented in its own display case. The estimated auction price of $300-$400k is approximately double what a similar car without the Jobs provenance would likely sell for. It will be interesting to see how this plays out- Steve McQueen's Ferrari 275 GTB sold a couple of years ago for about triple what a comparable 275 GTB would have brought at that time, but McQueen was the legendary King of Cool- Steve Jobs may not have the same cachet. Then again, Paul Newman's Rolex sold for $17.8m a month ago, so who knows?

    Information from a friend who was at the auction: a bid war between two ladies who did not want the other to buy the car ;-)
