'Nash Bridges' Auction Take Lower Than Hoped

July 31, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A warehouse full of props and costumes from the canceled TV cop show "Nash Bridges" didn't bring in the cash auctioneers had hoped.

The items drew about $225,000 Sunday, less than what the Harvey Clars auction house expected, auctioneer Redge Martin said.

Don Johnson and Cheech Marin starred in the San Francisco-based series, which ended its six-year run this season. The item most of the 300 dealers wanted to see, a yellow 1971 Plymouth Barracuda convertible, turned out to be one of five identical cars used on the show. An anonymous bidder bought it for $23,000.

Before the sale began, Martin issued a disclaimer to the crowd. "All items sold as-is and where-is," he said. "If you buy it and decide you don't want it, that's too bad. We do not warrant any item to be suited for any purpose."
