Classic car auction previews attract at least two groups of people: People with bidder numbers who are examining the cars before bidding on them, and the rest of us, who are there because it’s an amazing opportunity to get close to some incredible cars we might otherwise rarely see. This is some of what we saw at the preview for the 20th annual Motor City auction staged by RM.
