Dale started his love of cars by collecting Hot Wheels as a child. His first car was a dead 1970 Dodge Challenger 440 R/T, acquired for the princely sum of $500. He’s been buying, selling, restoring, collecting and otherwise obsessing over classic cars ever since. Dale serves as the voice of Auctions America as well as Tom Mack and Carlisle Auctions. He also serves as a Contributor and Senior Auction Analyst for SCM and ACC. Dale’s collection includes a 1966 Sunbeam Tiger, a “Mister Norm’s” 1970 Dodge Challenger 440 R/T and an ultra-rare 1940 Plymouth convertible (to name a few). When he’s not immersed in the world of classic cars, Dale applies his talents as a seasoned marketing and advertising consultant.
