Wealth Dreams — 1930 Lancia Lambda 8 Sports Tourer Seeks New Home — My Home!

So, if you were in the audience or bidding online during RM Auctions’ Paris 2014 event, what would you pick to drive home?

Let’s have an imaginary budget of $150,000 — which is plenty — where would your dollars go?

For me, it is this 1930 Lancia Lambda 8 Sports Tourer. It speaks to me. I think about it often.

It is like a lover I will never have, or a friend I’ll never lose.

Four doors, low roof, drama from all angles — yep. This is just my style.

It is still seeking a new ‘forever home’ since not meeting its reserve during the auctions. The high bid of about $120,000 was not sufficient for this charming Lancia’s owner to part with it. And can you blame him (or her)?

Just quite a special machine, with spirit and passion and soul. It speaks to me via its worn brass fittings and sporty stance.

Some day, Lancia Lambda 8, you will be mine.
