  • Wish I'd have seen this sooner

    Last night a good looking Lark Convertible went no reserve at McCormick's Palm Springs auction. Don't know what it went for but based on the number I bet it was late and very reasonable.

    Is this the car?

      The editor of Auto Restorer magazine is very high on McCormick's auctions.

          I read the post by StudeRich before I looked at the car, but I couldn't take my eyes from the right rear wheel. Something is not correct there. When I put skirts on our 1960 I had to remove the skirt mounting rods because they rubbed the wheels going around corners. Bias tires would have probably been okay, but not radials.

            My friend took a Comet Wagon, a Nova and a Cushman to McCormick Auction. I worked on all 3 and wished I could have attended. He takes cars to perhaps 1 dozen auctions each year and he never misses McCormick's. They are a class act of auctions. If I had seen this sooner I might have been a bidder. I bet it went low based on the time the number would have drawn.
