Longtime City Island resident Alex Schibli became the highest bidder when the Rat Island auction ended this afternoon. The Swiss born engineer will pay 73 year old Edmund "Red" Brennen a total of $160K for the one plus acre island, which is made up entirely of rock. Red, who now lives in Jupiter, Florida, and is a former City Islander, reportedly paid $5K for Rat Island in 1972. He's pictured on the right wearing the biker suspenders.

Given the unpredictability of life, some would think twice before taking their beloved classic vehicle to a caravan, or antique car show because it is always a risk. First there are all those people wandering around with their kids, drinks, food and such. There's also a chance of a scratch, or a smudge. Or even the possibility of a dent if you're really unlucky. But the folks who participated today were as lucky as they could be. The weather was also pleasant.
