Classic vehicles are joining the ranks of art, jewelry as popular collectible assets

You can have your Picassos, your Ch teaux Lafites, your 20-carat pink diamonds. The only collectible Friday that mattered to Koko Herman was the metallic blue 1968 Pontiac GTO on the auction block at the Colorado Convention Center.

Herman raised her hand to bid. Someone bid higher. She raised the bid. Someone else bid higher.

The 600 vehicles up for auction Friday and Saturday ran the gamut from vintage classics such as a 1923 Ford Model T Roadster to 1960s muscle cars to Ferraris and Maseratis.

As a whole, collectible car values have risen 44 percent over the past three years, according to Hagerty, a Michigan-based automotive insurer and valuation firm.

Analysts say that over the past decade, classic cars have entered the realm of traditional collectible assets such as fine art, coins and jewelry.

But aside from a few high-net-worth investors who will pay millions for extremely rare and exotic cars, most of the market is driven by buyers who don’t care not much, anyway about return on an investment.

“It’s kind of a bucket-list thing,” said Dave Magers, CEO of Mecum Auctions. “These are people looking for the car they had in high school, or the car they wanted to have in high school. People want to have fun with these cars, and they’re a lot more fun than hanging a piece of art on the wall.”

Herman, who works in the investment department of FirstBank, said she expects eventually to realize a return on her ’68 GTO, but that wasn’t on her mind Friday.

“I like the physical part the feel of the power, the speed, the glances you get from people next to you at the stoplight,” she said. “The GTO was always a hot car in the group that I grew up with.”

By late Friday afternoon, the auction’s top sale was a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette convertible that commanded $60,000. Other cars sold for far less. The top bid on a 1987 Pontiac Fiero was $3,000.

Magers said that over the course of the two-day auction, he expects several sales to ring up at more than $100,000.

Veteran car collectors Diana and Bernard Schrader traveled from Henderson, Nev. to catch the Denver show and to sell their ’59 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner with a retractable hardtop. Selling is the main purpose of their trip. But with so many attractive cars on the auction block, might they return to Nevada with a new purchase in tow?

Bernard’s bidding hand virtually twitched in expectation until he glanced at Diana.

“I’m going to get some masking tape,” she said, grinning, “and use it to tape his arms down.”

Following a survey of ownership carried out in the late 1960s, ownership of the totality of the walls was vested in 1973 in the Spanish State, through the Ministry of Education and Science. It was transferred to the Xunta de Galicia by Royal Decree in 1994.

The Spanish Constitution reserves certain rights in relation to the heritage to the central government. However, these are delegated to the competent agencies in the Autonomous Communities, in this case the Xunta de Galicia. For the Lugo walls the Xunta is in the position of both owner and competent agency. Under the Galician Heritage Law the Xunta is required to cooperate with the municipal authorities in ensuring the protection and conservation of listed monuments, and certain functions are delegated down to them. The Xunta operates through its General Directorate of Cultural Heritage (Dirección General de Patrimonio Cultural), based in Santiago de Compostela.

The Master Plan for the Conservation and Restoration of the Roman Walls of Lugo (1992) covered proposals for actions to be taken in respect of research and techniques of restoration. This was followed in 1997 by the Special Plan for the Protection and Internal Reform of the Fortified Enceinte of the Town of Lugo, which is concerned principally with the urban environment of the historic town. However, it has a direct impact on the protection afforded to the walls, in terms of traffic planning, the creation of open spaces, and regulation of building heights. Another planning instrument which affects the walls is the Special Plan for the Protection of the Miño [river], approved by the municipality at the beginning of 1998.

There is at the present time no management plan sensu stricto for the walls in operation in Lugo: work is continuing on the basis of the 1992 plan. Nor is there a technical unit specifically responsible for the conservation and restoration of the walls. It is against this background that serious consideration is being given to the creation of an independent foundation, under royal patronage and with representatives from government, academic, voluntary, and business institutions, to work with the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage of Galicia. The work plan of this body would include the development and implementation of integrated conservation, restoration, and maintenance programmes.

The WH area is managed directly by the Divisional Forest Officer from the Forest Dept. A national steering Committee co-ordinates institutions for Sinharaja as a National Wilderness Area, Biosphere Reserve (1988), and WH site. There are two management plans, prepared in 1985/86 and 1992/94, which emphasise conservation, scientific research, buffer zone management, benefit-sharing, and community participation.

In 1979, the Committee decided to inscribe the Ohrid Lake on the World Heritage List under natural criteria (iii). In 1980, this property was extended to include the cultural and historical area, and cultural criteria (i)(iii)(iv) were added.

The “Hadrian’s Wall” which was previously inscribed on the World Heritage List, is part of the transnational property “Frontiers of the Roman Empire”.

Extension of “Gough Island Wildlife Reserve”.

(renomination under cultural criteria)

Extension of the “Glacier Bay/Wrangell/St Elias/Kluane” property.

#. As for 19 Natural and Mixed Properties inscribed for geological values before 1994, criteria numbering of this property has changed. See Decision 30.COM 8D.1
