Palm Beach Behind the Wheel

Auto art

During a recent al fresco lunch in Town Square, the Guide’s 13-year-old (occasional) office helper inventoried passing cars: Several Bentleys and Jags. A Rolls. A Tesla. A Maserati, black. An Aston-Martin, blue. A Ferrari, white. And a wicked crimson McLaren.

Palm Beach, you love your wheels. So motor over the bridge this weekend to the 14th Annual Palm Beach Auto Auction, presented by Barrett-Jackson at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

Highlights include a rare 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner and a Thunderbird convertible from the same model year. Both are meticulously restored. Both are supercharged. Both are very, very red.

You can bid on a vintage 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL convertible, a 1939 Bentley Zer-Green Royale Custom (pictured), or if your taste runs to speed, either a 2004 or 2005 Porsche Carrera.

The invitation-only Opening Night Gala is Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m., following a Preview Day limited to credentialed buyers and consigners. The show runs from Friday, April 8 through Sunday, April 10. Visit the website for more information.
