THE CARS OF “PALM ROYALE”: Celebrating the Car Culture of the 1960s in Southern Florida
1965 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD III

With the April 18-20 Palm Beach Auction at the South Florida Fairgrounds quickly approaching, we wanted to celebrate some of the amazing cars seen in the new and popular Apple TV+ show “Palm Royale.” The series takes place in Palm Beach in 1969 and features several incredible vehicles from the era.

The show follows Maxine Simmons, played by Kristen Wiig, and her endeavors to break into Palm Beach high society. While it’s a story about the haves and the have-nots and the things people will do to be a part of an exclusive group, the show offers a little something for everyone, including car enthusiasts.

Among the skilled actors, mesmerizing sets filled with palm trees and fringed pool parasols, and exquisite fashion in every hue from Bubblegum Pink and Canary Yellow to Tangerine and Avocado, we can’t help but notice the collector cars throughout the show. Maxine’s mid-1960s Plymouth Belvedere provides a symbolic contrast to the Baby Blue Rolls-Royce driven by Dinah Donahue (Leslie Bibb) and the big-body Rolls-Royce Maxine finds under a tarp at dear old Aunt Norma’s house (Carol Burnett). And of course, we can’t forget about the beautiful Jaguar E-Type driven by Ann Holiday (Mindy Cohn), the new society editor of “The Shiny Sheet” newspaper.

Take a look at this gallery of memorable sales at Barrett-Jackson auctions inspired by “Palm Royale” that celebrate one of the most influential decades in automotive history.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
