Sweet Duty

Dear Friend Peter Corbett has some sweet duty each year when he is "assigned" to cover Car Auction Week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the years, the mid-winter classic car auctions have become THE place to buy and sell some of the world's most desirable collector cars.

During the past few days, Peter has been rubbing elbows (and presumably tradin' paint) with some of the most valuable vehicles on earth.  Below are three photos of Peter with captions.
 Here's Peter looking real professional and business like in The Batmobile.  It was hoped this one-of-a-kind relic would edge into seven figures and, Holy Smokes, did it ever, selling for a no joker $4.25-million!
 Here's Peter looking professional and business like next to a 1958 Ferrari.  This one was projects to sell for perhaps the low side of $2-million.  However someone in the "What Recession?" crowd upped the ante a little bit and this puppy went for $8.25-million!  Peter attemped to get his Facebook Friends to "crowd source" a private funding pool to attempt to buy the car.  Rumor has it he was actually allowed to sit in the car, too.
Here's Peter showing off his "Inner Reporter" at The Spirit Room in Jerome, December 29th, 2012.  Way to GO, Peter--you've got a HOT hand writing about Car Auction Week!  Keep up your great work.  Many Cheers, jp
