Sadly in the collector car world “Hemi” just doesn’t do what it used to, but when you ad convertible to it, it still rings the bell! The GTX convertible is one of the rarest of them all! Lot L77 is 1 of 11!

 

 

Lot 82.1 not only carries three legendary drivers signature, but one of them on the door as well. Signed by Shelby, Unser, and Bondurant. This Bob Bondurant racing Mustang is a cool piece of history for anyone’s collection!

I love a Superbird, but the white on Lot L84 may be the classiest color of them all.

Lot 79.1, better known as King Of The Hill, the ZR1. This low mile example should really ring the bell!

Lot L40 brings us the first Foxbody Mustang of the auction. This is an SSP car, meaning basically it was a cop car. This particular one was a Florida Highway Patrol Car. These cars have been doing really good at auctions as of late, it will be interesting to see what trend this one sets for the year.

Lot 006: 1953 Hudson Hornet Convertible

I’m a big Hudson Hornet fan. The classic styling, the Twin H Power, what’s not to love? This car is even cooler being a convertible, you never see any convertible’s left.

Lot 027: 1967 Toyota 2000 GT

Take one look at this and you are probably thinking Ferrari or some other exotic. But on second look, you realize this is a Toyota.

Lot 045: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Not only is it a split window, not only is it a fuel injected car, but its a Z06. This is a must have for any Corvette collector.

Lot 109: 1956 Chevrolet Corvette SR1  Tribute Car

The SR1, one of the prettiest Corvette race cars ever built. Every one wants to own one, unfortunately, not everyone can own the original. So someone took the time to build a well done tribute car. I have no problem with it, I’d be just as happy to own it!

Lot 120: 1990 Ferrari F40

One of the coolest sports cars of all time, anytime there is an F40 at the auction you cannot pass it up!

Lot 147: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88

Just look at it, one of the baddest Corvette’s in any color, let alone black!

Lot 155: 1962 Shelby Cobra

Everyone gets so caught up in the kit Cobra look, the 427’s and the side pipes that you forgot how much of a classic look the early small block Cobra’s had!

Lot 013: 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull Wing

It’s a Gull Wing, had to make the list!

Lot 127: 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

I’ll admit, I’m not very educated on my early Ferrari’s, but this thing is an absolute work of art. The styling and design is just out of this world.

Lot 033: 1950 Ferrari 166 MM/195 S Berlinetta Le Mans

Alot of these bigger auctions place what they expect the car to bring on their listings. Usually I try to ignore it so it doesn’t sway my opinion’s on cars. It would be easy for me to pick the top ten most valuable cars and look like I hit a home run. But this list isn’t about that. Its a mix of popular cars with personal taste. But when i see a car listed that is expected to bring five to six million dollars, well it has to go on the list!

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!
