    Default Alpine/Gordini torture

    Has anyone seen this before?

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/3802...3617344950709/

    What's the yellow one? Looks like a Floride/Caravelle with unusual lights?

    Is that the collection of the eccentric chap up in a mountainous area of France?

    I love it; it's like battlefields growing over, history and nature blending beautifully as the will of man cedes inevitably to nature.

    I guess one day a sibling will inherit the lot and probably a famous auction will follow...

    No, it's a very rare A110 Cabriolet, all A108s had Dauphine's taillights.

    An auction of what nature has left us anyway. Won't be much I suspect.... Alas...

    Thanks Ove for the identification - now YOU are close enough to go and extract it from the mess. Bit far from Oz.

    Interesting that I quoted the above tract (Gen 3:19) almost within a minute or two as an extended family member died. Not that I knew it at the time!

    Ms Gombert, has written that when he dies, all his collection is to be destroyed by cutting and pressing. !!!!!

    Thanks Ray. What is it with some collectors? I bought a USA 63 Falcon Sprint off a deceased estate. He had dozens of collectable cars and when he died, the wife said if she didn't get what she wanted for the cars, she was going to have them crushed! At least she auctioned them giving people a chance to buy them. I don't know if any were crushed in the end.

    The Alpine collection fate is quite depressing really ...
    cheers,

    John

    What an asshole. As a collector you'd think nothing would give you more pleasure than seeing your life long collection go to people who'd appreciate it. To scrap them all is just plain sellfish.
