Casablanca Buick Crossing The Block
1940 Buick phaeton would be a collectible in its own right, but this is not just any classic car. It was in front of this very automobile that Humphrey Bogart (Rick) told Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa), "We'll always have Paris." As posted on the Hemmings blog, this former Warner Bros. prop will be up for auction on November 25. The burns on the upholstery are "period correct," as they came from Bogie's ever present cigarette.
