Apparently not all attempts at driving your car on the beach end in sobbing and new electrical systems.
​Full disclosure: I've never seen Arthur, the 1981 Steve Gordon film starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minelli. In fact, Moore's 2002 death occurred only days after I was born. But Wikipedia says the thing won a few Academy Awards, so I'll assume someone out there probably really likes the movie.

Anyway, Arthur's limo from the film, a 1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, is coming to Fort Lauderdale next month and can be yours for the low price of "heaps of money."

Auctions America expects the car to go for $100,000 to $125,000, but you can just ogle it by buying a pass for $20 to the auction's preview days at the Broward Convention Center from March 15 to 18. Children under 12 get in free, but be careful about letting them wave around those little paddles with the numbers on them.

There look to be about 400 cars up for auction at the event, and a news release pointed out a 1933 Cadillac from Seabiscuit and a 1969 Ford Mustang owned by Indy 500 winner Jacques Villeneuve, though if it was that cool, we don't know why Jacques is selling it.

Also somewhere in the show is a 1930 Marquette and a 1933 Chrysler Imperial, about which we can tell you nothing authoritative other than that they look straight ballin'. You can get more information about the event and check out the rest of the cars at the Auctions America website.

You've done so well at all, quite interesting the owner of the said car must be so careful almost a 60 year old car the car is still working and still gracefully

The Detroit News reports insurance premiums have declined 5 years in a row. I can't remember a cycle like this ever. Of course, not everybody has had a decline, mine actually went up high but found  "Clearance Auto" that I could easily reduce it
