Well this little story was just going to be a press release verbatim from Gooding and Company regarding the upcoming Pebble Beach California Auction this August 20 and 21, 2011. It was to be that, however as I read through their release I realized I was bored halfway through it. That being said, the release went on and on about a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Prototype up for auction. A unique and cool car indeed. Then the sales pitch slipped in and I got bored. Suffice is to say this car WILL sell for a new record in auction house car sale prices. Final price: $16,390,000 !!!

That being said there are so many other interesting cars that deserve mention here too. So lets have a quick look at what else the Pebble Beach California auction will provide.
