Last year’s auction alone saw them rake in about $35.9 million with about $6.6 million coming in from the sale of Delahaye Torpedo Roadster.
The Baillon collection grabbed a lot of eye balls at the Retromobile week conducted in Paris. The auction house offered about a 100 stunning cars among which 60 could be restored. A vast majority of these cars remained hidden for several decades before being rescued by Roger Biallon.
Every year new cars are made, but only a few go down in history to become an iconic car. The 1977 Pontiac that was driven by Burt Reynolds’s movie Smokey and The Bandit certainly falls in the latter category.
