lÂart et lÂautomobile, headquartered in Long Island, New York, in East Hampton, recognized worldwide as a leader in automotive collectibles announced today that the third of its exclusive on-line auctions will be taking place during mid-March to early April, making bidding on those rare objects and those sought-after collectibles just a mouse-click away. ÂWe have been very happy with the results of our first two on-line sales,Â said Jacques Vaucher, owner of lÂart et lÂautomobile, Âand many collectors have told us how much they like it being so easy to take part and follow the progress of the sale from their home, office or on the road.Â
For their first sale of the 2005 season, a selection of over 340 specially selected lots of collectibles ranging from literature, out-of-print books, and racing posters, to toy cars, radiator mascots and original works of automotive art, will be available for inspection and around-the-clock bidding at their website, http://www.arteauto.com.
ÂUnlike major on-line auction services,Â said Vaucher, Âour sale is for the serious collector who doesnÂt have time to sort through millions of non-related items, he can know that each and every item we have will be of interest to those who really love the automobile.Â
Just because this sale caters to experienced collectors doesnÂt mean that the novice collector on a budget wonÂt find something of interest in the Spring 2005 on-line sale. Starting bids for a number of lots are as low as $25.00 and the variety of items touch almost every aspect of the hobby from classics to the high-end sports and racing cars. Motorsports play an important part of every auction staged by lÂart et lÂautomobile, and this sale has many interesting items including original racing programs from Europe as well as posters that promote events such as Monaco, Le Mans and an number of racing venues.
Among the many items on the block is a large selection of books that provide histories on specific marques as well as racing histories, statistics and results. One lot is a complete collection of Automobile Year from its first issue covering 1953, up to the 2002, which Vaucher says is getting rare, to find the entire run together.
ÂWhat is so much fun about our auctions,Â says Vaucher, Âis that you never know exactly what you are going to find. And with it being on-line, we have made it very convenient to take part in our sales.Â
For those who are a little too anxious for the auction, or might be looking for a gift idea for their friends or family that have motor oil in their veins, http://www.arteauto.com also has a wide selection of collectibles offered for sale at their on-line store, ranging from posters for concours to grand prix races to books about specific marques, historic tracks or celebrities in the world of motorsport and the automobile world, plus prints, original artwork, badges and more.
