Lots of stuff from the collection was originally procured by John Barnes including these two gems; Carroll's drawers and Table Scraps;D

John told me both of these stories when I bought his GT350. I had a hard time believing him, but there's the proof. Crazy!

Wow. I just went through the lots.  There's some AMAZING stuff in there!

I felt a great disturbance in the Force.  It was as if millions of Shelby pieces suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced by Brian Glover.

That original artwork is tha bomb!!

If I had the means I would go for all of that big time, plus any Dan Gurney stuff.

And if John purchased a lot of John Barnes' collection then chances are good some of my father-in-laws Hertz stuff is present - which if it is, is very, very cool.

Yeah, can we bid online or do we have to call in or be there in person?  I don't think the borders will be open to travel in July so there's no way I could even think of going.
