Talk about the paradox of choice. Auctions America's Auburn Spring sale includes roughly 450 cars at no reserve from the John Scotti collection from Montreal, Canada. Scotti is a well-known classic car dealer, but he's clearing out much of his inventory at the auction that runs from May 8-10 at the Auburn Auction Park in Auburn, IN.

The collection of cars runs the gamut with something for every auto enthusiast. While the selection tends toward American classics from the '50s, '60s and '70s, there are also some vintage European cars from Jaguar and Rolls-Royce and more modern supercars including three Lamborghini Diablos, an Acura NSX and a very sweet Porsche 911 Slantnose. The prices seem generally reasonable with many lots available with estimates at less than $20,000, and with no reserve there could be some bargains as well. There are so definite oddities in the bunch, too, like a rotary-engined 1969 NSU RO80 and the love-it-or-hate-it shape of a 1984 Aston Martin Lagonda.

Even if you can't attend the auction or afford the classics, you can watch it on the NBC Sports Network. Click through our gallery for a smattering of the cars on the block, or if you have the time, wade through the whole collection, here. It will be time well wasted.

        I love automotive oddballs and the Lagonda has always been at the top of my "wish I had the money" list!

      Nice that he has an NSU Ro80. Not seen one of those in years.

      Looks like quite the amazing collection, many of these models (such as that MKIII Supra or some of the Firebirds) I've never seen so clean. I'm a sucker for the mint early year NSX, but honestly, at least 90% of them are real winners IMO.

      "There are so definite oddities in the bunch" Solid work, Chris. Just like most of the AB articles, this one is unreadable. Nice cars, though.

      There are some truly beautiful examples of Automobile history in that collection. I only wish that I was wealthy enough to afford the ones that I like, had a place to keep them all, and be able to split myself into multiple entities so I could drive them all, all the time! I would love to be able to see the auction, but I don't get the NBC Sports channel.

      Love the Ultimate Chromemobile, that '58 Olds.

      Man... the C2 Corvette remains my favorite car design of all time. For my money (not that I can afford one), that is the best-looking car on the planet.

        Agreed, looks amazing from all angles. Definitely one of the top designs from the US or abroad.

      Obviously, sometimes rich people don't know what to do with all their money... or their time either.
