Lot 111, a 1991 Dodge Stealth. I’ve always liked these cars and their Mitsubishi cousin’s! They had a lot of problems back in the day, but still very cool cars!

 

Lot 214, BAN-ONE, need I say more?

 

Lot 204, they are only original once! Glad to see this 1940 Ford left that way, the patina on this thing is out of this world awesome!

 

Lot 235, The Skoal Bandit, maybe not as famous as its #33 cousin, but this car is still a cool piece. Top ten finish at Indy in 1995, driven by Rick Mast.

Lot 169 is a very clean, simple Corvette. In the world of big blocks and L88’s, and 427’s, and this and that, it’s just nice to see a simple, clean small block car!

 

Lot 172‘s color is what caught my eye most. Emberglo Orange, check it out!

Lot T70.1 stands for LT1, the LT1 Corvette is one of the most awesome Vette’s ever created in my opinion. This on is a factory AC car, which was a one year only option making it among the most rare. This one will surly fetch big money!

 

Lot T79 should let all those guys with 454SS Chevy trucks stuck in their garage if their investment was worth while or not. With less than 5 miles, never dealer prepped, this has to be the nicest most collectible 454SS in the country.

 

Lot T155.1, the Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am, probably the strongest preforming mid 70’s muscle car of them all. These cars, like all Trans Am’s have really came on the money. My dad had almost this identical car but in a 1974 instead of 1973. Wish he would have kept it! This car is a survivor, be interesting to see how it stacks up against a fully restored car price wise!

Being a Challenger T/A owner myself, you know I couldn’t pass this one up. Lot T142 is a great example of a very nice T/A. Hope it brings some big money!

I’m assuming Lot G165.1 is a a real Boss and not a tribute car, assuming it is, I really like this. You’ve got the Boss name, but not a super original car, so you could take it out and enjoy it!

 

It’s always interesting to see old tow vehicles sitting around in the back of lots, you hardly ever see them still in great condition or restored. Lot G33 & Lot G22 are two very nice examples of a roll back and wrecker. These trucks both still have a lot of great use left to the individual private collector, but it will be interesting to see if they are viewed as work horses, or collectibles.

 

 

While on the subject of trucks, lets look at Lot G105. These trucks never really took off, but I was always a big fan!

 

It’s hard to beat the classic look of a 56-57 Corvette. Lot G181 delivers just that. My dad had a 56 in the same color, so this one caught my eye right away.

Lot 905: 1991 GMC Saudi Syclone

What makes this one cool: We mentioned another GMC Syclone earlier in the week, but this one is one of 31 “Saudi” Syclone’s that were built for export. Ultra rare, I can’t remember the last time I saw one up for sale. This one has been modded a little bit so we will see how that effects its final auction price.

 

Lot 999: 1969 Ford Talladega 

What makes this one cool: By this point, you know I have a thing for Talladega’s!

Lot 1004: 1970 Plymouth HEMI ‘Cuda Convertible

What makes this one cool: HEMI, ‘CUDA, CONVERTIBLE. Need I say more?

Lot 1024: 1970 Ford Torino King Cobra “Recreation” 

What makes this one cool: Speaking of the Ford Talladega, this one is its evil big brother. A VERY rare car and personally one of my favorites of all time, this one is actually a clone. But even in clone form, this one has a lot of nice parts on it and as rare as they are, I expect this one to go for somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 grand.

Lot 1037: 1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455

What makes this one cool: These cars were factory beasts, rare, and always bring good money.

Lot 1069: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO

What makes this one cool: A lot of COPO cars you see are restored or kept in their factory condition, but honestly, that’s not what they were meant to do, they were meant to drag race. That is exactly what this one did. With its history, it will be interesting to see if that helps or hurts its value.

Lot 1051: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

What makes this one cool: Being that there is one in my garage, I gotta keep my eye on this one!
