The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for $38.1 million last Thursday got the headlines. But there's another side to the week of automobile auctions that precede Sunday's 64th annual Concours d'Elegance classic-car show at the Pebble Beach golf resort.
Like the vintage 1959 Riley that sold for $5,500.
Or the classic 1951 "bullet-nose" Studebaker that went for even less - just $4,000.
By comparison, the 1962 Chrysler Imperial equipped with "triple cigarette lighters" cost a fortune: all of $9,500.
