Just when we thought the fiasco with the Big 3 couldn’t get any stranger, it does. We’re not sure what this sale means, but it can’t be good news when GM starts auctioning off its collection of collector cars.
There’s a story in Old Cars Weekly
magazine about a sale. It seems GM is going to sell 50+ cars from its Heritage Museum
Collection. The cars will be sold in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Barrett-Jackson auction January 13-18.
Some of the cars to go are on the auction block are a 1918 Cadillac, a 1925 Chevrolet
House Car, a 1904 Olds Touring Runabout, a 1916 GMC Stake Truck, a series of rare Corvettes,
and several others. The claim is that the rarest of vehicles will stay in the museum.
So if we’re snowed in this January, this would be the auction to watch. We always try to
watch as much of the auction as possible. The television coverage on Speedvision, or
whatever they’re calling it now is extensive. As the auction gets closer we’re sure there
will be more vehicles added to the list. We’ll try to keep everyone posted.
Comments are always welcome.
