A car auctioneer in Baltimore will get his first shot at a car of a once-upon-a-time-but-not-so-much-once-again era when a buyer from Brooklyn pays more than $1 million for the car of his childhood.
Zachary Siegel of the Siegel Car Auctioneers is one of a few people from the Brooklyn neighborhood that have been taking bids on the 1966 Porsche 911 GT3.
Siegel says that it’s not unheard of for someone from Brooklyn to buy a car from a car auction.
That’s the case with a number of other car owners from the area.
He said he expects some of the cars to go for well over $1 billion.
For Siegel, the auction is a chance to show off his cars, which are among the most sought-after cars in the world.
They are built in the early 60s, have unique names and are not for sale.
But, Siegel said, it’s the opportunity to showcase them to a prospective buyer who may be interested in one or more of the three sports cars he has.
Sweeney, who was born in Brooklyn, said he bought a Porsche for $250,000 in 2014.
He took it to the auction, which closed Wednesday, and won.
“I didn’t know the Porsche would sell for $1.1 million, but I knew it would sell,” Sweeney said.
Selling a car for $2.5 million or more is not unusual.
Many buyers who don’t have the money to buy the car will pay much more.
For example, in 2014, a buyer paid $4.7 million for a car valued at $8.7 billion.
The auction is also a chance for an owner to showcase his or her unique car, which could be one of several that are being sold for more than the average price.
A 1967 Ford Mustang, for example, was recently sold for $4 million.
But a car that was once in a museum and is now on display is not necessarily going to sell for that amount, said Stephen Kosters, senior vice president of public relations at the Sotheby’s auction house.
Sotheby.com’s sales manager, Dan Binder, said there’s been a lot of excitement about the car since the car was sold for the first time in May.
Sothebys interest in the car stems from its unique history and its current status as a classic.
“The car is a classic and it’s a very rare car,” he said.
“It has a story to it that’s very unique.”
The car’s history goes back to 1955 when the owners of the company that made the car, the General Motors Corporation, sold it to Volkswagen for $450,000.
The company also used the car to sell a number a other cars and trucks in the 1960s.
That included the 1968 Mercury Cougar and the 1972 Porsche 911.
In 1977, the car sold for an astounding $1,000,000 and was displayed at the Smithsonian Institution.
A year later, it was used to sell cars at auction.
Siegel says he had a chance at getting the car last year when the auction house took a bid on it.
Snyder said he has received inquiries from a number people from other parts of the country.
He plans to hold a press conference Tuesday to announce the winner.
Sigmar Hagen, the head of the auction department, said that Siegel’s bid was very impressive.
Hagen said the car has a number features, including the distinctive chrome-plated radiator grille and the fact that it has no tailgate.
Hagen said it is the first Porsche ever to be displayed in the United States at a U.S. auto auction.SIGMAR HAGEN, Head of the Baltimore Auto Auctions: We believe that it is going to be a very strong bid.
It will go down in history.
There’s a history to it.
It’s not for everybody.
There are lots of things that make it unique.
It was built in Europe and it was brought to America for that reason.
