This 1956 Lancia Aurelia sold at one of the nation's premier collector car auctions recently for $266,000. Gooding & Co. the auction house, left it like this -- dirt, grime, cracked upholstery and all -- because, if they cleaned it, it wouldn't have been worth as much, said Gooding specialist Garth Hammers.
