The Quail Auction - Bonhams. A sea of calm and great offerings.

Bonhams has always been one of those auctions where everyone is oh so polite. No screaming and yelling, just a nod here, a hand raised there. They don't have the most cars but they always have beautiful, interesting cars to bid on. There's usually everything from the Brass Era to the present. Bonhams wasn't the only auction to feature "barn finds" this year. It seems to be a growing segment.

I found these interesting this year.
