We kick our yearly auction coverage off with Dave Rupp’s Collector Car Auction in Ft. Lauderdale Beach, Florida. Below are our Top 10 Gotta Haves from this auction!
Old Ford Phaeton’s are super cool and super rare. It was impossible to not add this one to the list when i saw it!
I got to admit, the Corvette grille and bumpers caught my eye. I’m usually not a big fan of modern customs, but this has enough old school in it that I really like it!
In the big scheme of things, I’m not really sure what this car is worth, but as a NASCAR fan, I thing its super cool!
Nothing beats an XKE coupe! This one is an excellently restored example of one!
Anything with the Shelby name gets my attention! I’ve always thought these were cool little cars!
Old speed shop trucks are cool. Being that this one is a Studebaker makes it even cooler! Even comes with a display motor in the back!
The color brought my attention to this one, never mind big block, four speed, etc. etc.!
It’s a foxbody, so you know its on my list!
You never see a nice 3/4 ton chevy for sale, thus why its on my list!
Really curious to see what this one does. These are fun little trucks and the price seems to be on the rise!

I wanted to take a second to share this story and say that our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends involved in all this, the hot rod community is a tight group and its always sad to loose one of our own. Be careful out there when enjoying the cars, you never know what lies around the next turn.
From the WLOS Story:
BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. — One person died on Thursday after a rollover wreck on I-40 near the I-26 interchange.
Two people were taken to the hospital from the scene, and Donald Frye, 68, later died from his injuries at the hospital.
The rollover wreck on I-40 westbound near mile marker 46 backed up traffic for more than an hour around 11:30 a.m.
The Asheville Police Department will continue to investigate.
