We are delighted to announce that both the Auction and Concours will take part at the Lakewood Yacht Club on Clear Lake.

We are honored to present this spectacular offering of over 100 automobiles. We have assembled a diverse offering that includes one of the most significant sports racing cars in Ferrari history – the First Scuderia Ferrari, 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Grand Sport Lightweight Zagato, as well as the most significant Mopars ever offered at auction – the 1971 Plymouth 440 – six pack ‘ Cuda convertible.
