The collectible automobile auctions marketplace continued to surprise everyone in Amelia Island this week, with the weather playing the final wildcard to prevent any analysis of the results having much meaning. Total sales were US$121.3 million, down from $140 million last year, but that doesn't mean much when the crowds headed for the auctions decided to go elsewhere when they had looked at the weather map.

Hagerty reports that the the average sale price was $332,345, which was down from an average sale price of $420,551 in 2016. It doesn't mean much because of all the disparate factors that influenced the weekend and the sale.

Apart from the weather, this year's sale didn't include a Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder. Last year, one such car sold for $17.2 million, which just about covers the entire 2017 auction cluster shortfall compared to 2016. Nor did the 2017 sales have a collection as significant as the Jerry Seinfeld Porsche Collection, which sold for $22.2 million last year.

The average sale price was down in 2017 for myriad reasons but mainly because of lack of sales in the $10 million plus premium area, many of the hero cars failing to sell, and cars sold above $2 million being hence notably scarce.

Rather than attempt to unravel the auction, we've pulled together the most notable sales and non-sales, and thrown in a dozen outliers we liked.
