DAY 2: Auction starts at 10 AM; 1912 Renault Victoria Limo with an appraisal & provenance. (auctioned at 12 noon) Original owner was the Metropolitan Opera singer, Madame Alda. VALUATION FROM ADVANCED AUTO APPRAISERS: "This vehicle has been meticulously restored in every detail. It is a rare car with very few still in existence. Another one of these vehicles can be seen in the movie the Titanic. Because of the rarity of this auto, it is a very difficult process to estimate the value of this vehicle. Using compatibles, of other Limos of that era. Adding a 60% increase for rarity, this vehicle is valued at approximately $110,000." (Appraisal is 20 years old.) LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF DAY 2 FOR LOTS OF INFO AND LETTER WRITTEN BY OWNER TELLING OF THE CAR'S HISTORY.
