    Always an interesting assortment of cars available. Here's today's find:

    1912 Diatto Speedster. Starting bid: $950,000, reserve not met.

    Where is this thing sitting? Somebody's living room?

    This was listed in the Kruse auction catalog in Auburn in September..

    Don't know if it was a no-sale there or not.

    It looks like it could be inside Evan's garage in San Diego.

    At 950K USD it may sit there for a long time.

    Nice looking and seems built to a high standard. I don't know anything about them, are they known for something specific?

    I've never heard of them either, but it certainly looks very well built but not flashy.

    Wonderful car and seems to be in excellent shape.
    To me though,always an unloved and not as good looking sister of the notchback version.
