Geared for the Automotive Life

History, Intellect, Passion — the Linkage Arizona Seminar 

On Thursday, January 26, Linkage magazine will join with RM Sotheby’s to present a unique, multi-media seminar experience at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Phoenix, AZ. 

Linkage Publisher Donald Osborne will join Gord Duff and Winston Goodfellow to discuss two cars from the RM Sotheby’s Arizona lineup: Specifically, a Bugatti EB110 GT and a Lexus LFA

How do cars differ when heritage, technology and tradition are fundamentally different elements for the companies that built them? Is a legacy earned through years of effort, or can it be created with a stroke of genius? And is that legacy a boon or a limiting factor when it comes to the pursuit of automotive excellence? 

History, Intellect, Passion — What Connects Collectors to Cars will look also look at the past and current values for these cars, as well as dive into their greater overall significance within the collector car world, the technological world and the art world — all factors that power value and desirability. 

The seminar takes place on Thursday, January 26 at 11:00 a.m. The location is the Arizona Biltmore, 2400 E Missouri Ave, Phoenix, AZ, 85016. All attendees will be given a complimentary RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction catalog, courtesy of the auction house.
