If it is, then it might be soon as the 40th Annual Leake Collector Car Auction is coming to Dallas’ Market Hall! Over 550 collector cars, trucks and motorcycles are expected to see the hammer on November 16-18.
Any car auction makes for a excellent car show too! If you are not currently shopping for a collector car, but rather just ‘window shopping’ you can do that too! Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for Seniors and Military w/ID and children $7. Doors will open at 9AM each day, with auction times on Friday begin at Noon, Saturday at 10AM and Sunday at 10AM. And when the auction action begins it will be fast and furious with two lanes of auction action simultaneously on Friday and Saturday! If you can’t make it to Market Hall, you can catch a online broadcast of the action from the Leake website.
Some of the vehicles expected to cross the auction block include –
a ’64 Lincoln Continental Convertible formerly owned by President Lyndon B. Johnson and was used on his Texas ranch,
a ’62 Chevy Impala SS two door with a beautiful black paint job and Torq Thrust wheels,
