Greensboro is quickly eclipsing many other automotive meccas, because GAA Classic Car Auction set new sales and attendance records. The last weekend in February were marked by bitter cold across the Piedmont, but it didn’t stop our friends from selling 94% of consignments. With 650 classics and collectibles, the event exceeded $19 million thanks to several heavy hitters.
Held at “The Automobile Palace”, over 1,000 bidders fought over a collection of 10 Chryslers from 1959. All from the same collector in Bristol, TN sold for a combined $580,000. The highest bids were for a 2017 Ford GT Heritage Edition that hammered for $1.04 million, the most expensive car in their history. Their YouTube channel received nearly 50,000 views, and it will also be replayed on MAV TV on March 25th at 7pm ET. Next month they will offer an additional 650 cars with 150 at no reserve, so stay with us for complete coverage of the event.
