Classic Motorcar Auctions to Hold Sale at 2010 Glenmoor Gathering

Canton, OH — Following its highly successful sale in Akron last August, Classic Motorcar Auctions will be hosting the first-ever classic car auction at the 2010 Glenmoor Gathering.

The Glenmoor Gathering, now in its sixteenth year, has become one of the top concours events in America. This year the show will feature “The Historic Motorcars of Cleveland,” including classic manufacturers such as Templar, Chandler, and Jordan as well as electric auto manufacturers Rauch & Land and Baker.

Vehicles consigned to the auction range from pre-war classics including a 1909 Buick Model 10, a 1931 Ford Model A Woody, a 1932 Chevrolet BA Deluxe Confederate cabriolet to mid-century American classics such as a 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne, a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker St. Regis, a 1958 Ford F-100 Fireman’s Panel truck, and a 1955 Lincoln Capri convertible. Not to be forgotten, a select number of muscle cars will also be auctioned as well as some specialty foreign cars including a 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster and 1928 Riley Nine. For a complete up-to-date listing of all vehicles consigned please visit the ‘Inventory’ tab at www.classicmotorcarauctions.com.

Classic car market conditions have improved over the past several months. In many ways classic automobiles parallel market trends for tangible investments such as precious metals, art, and antiques. The likelihood of further inflation as our country rebounds from the recession ensures that collector car values will continue to rise.

Additionally the auction will offer a large assortment of automobilia to open the sale that day. Expect to find your favorites including tin signs, toys, petroliania, antique gas pumps and the like.

Jim grew up in a small neighborhood of car guys, so the bug bit him early, and rides in his neighbor’s over-powered street rods sealed the deal for good. His first car was a ’66 Caprice with a big-block Chevy—a car which landed him his first job as a mechanic after high school and through college, got him into drag racing, and much to the distress of his wife Kristina, caused his recent home search to take a full year—the Caprice is 19 feet long and gets parked inside. In addition to the Caprice, also maintains a 1972 Chevrolet K10 4x4 and a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.
