2008-09-30 15:00
Winning bidders at an auction of vintage vehicles and memorabilia in Maine have bought a 1910 Mercedes four-seat Tourabout for $887 000 and a 1913 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost for $832 000.

The auction on Friday and Saturday drew an estimated 500 people to the town of Owls Head, Maine, plus telephone bidders from around the world.

The auction disposed of part of the collection of car fancier Richard Paine Jnr of Seal Cove, Maine, who died last year.

The 1910 Mercedes and the 1913 Rolls-Royce were the top-priced items, and a half-dozen other cars sold for more than $250 000 each.

Proceeds of the auction go to an endowment for the Seal Cove Auto Museum, which houses the core of Paine's collection.
