“Bidding by Handheld Device Engages Local and Global Collectors”

MONTEREY, CA – (08/06/2015) Rick Cole Auctions Monterey will be held August 13-15 at the Downtown Monterey Marriott Hotel. This year 36 pristine collector cars will be offered with bidding by handheld device.  The 2014 event boasted over $59 Million from less than 40 vehicles with three of the “Top Ten” record prices for the week’s auctions including a $23 Million 1955 Ferrari 410 S sports racer. The auction once again supports Kinship Center.

Rick Cole’s business model allows those currently credentialed by other companies operating on the Monterey peninsula to immediately qualify for bidding at his event.  There is no bidder fee or admission charged. The boutique auction is conducted in a prime location with fully hosted food and bars for registered bidders.  The format allows collectors and investors to participate from anywhere in the world.

Bidding by handheld device (or absentee bidding form) starts Thursday, August 13th at 9:00 am PST and ends Saturday, August 15th at midnight PST.  Registered bidders can view auction cars Thursday 10:00 AM to 6:00PM, Friday and Saturday 10:00 am to midnight at Marriott Hotel in Downtown Monterey (across from the RM/Sotheby’s Auction).

About Rick Cole
Rick Cole pioneered the sports and racing car auction format in Monterey nearly three decades ago. As a result, five powerful auction companies now hold annual events during Monterey Car Week. In 2014 Rick returned to Monterey in great style with a highly-creative auction allowing bidders the freedom to enjoy dining, golf, shopping, car events, and even other auctions, while bidding on his vehicles from their hand-held device.  Rick has identified a way for people to engage in his auction without the stress of rushing to designated locations and remaining for hours to bid on specific vehicles. Rick has donated $1 Million to Kinship Center since 1985.
