FOURTH ANNUAL SARATOGA MOTORCAR AUCTIONS
LIVE EVENT SET FOR SEPTEMBER 19, 2020 IN UPSTATE NEW YORK
"Collector Car Auction Features Famed Movie Car Christine and Other Desirables."Every now and then I post things from other folks. This is one of those times. I've never been to the Saratoga Motorcar Auction but I have been to Saratoga and that area of Upstate New York. It is a beautiful part of this nation with many picturesque towns to poke around, go antiquing and dine in. So if you can go take the family to the area for a little vacation while you spend some money at the auction. Bidders and consignors only will be allowed into the auction in order to comply with New York's COVID-19 regulations. But remember to always observe proper COVID-19 protocols. Thanks, Bruce Hotchkiss
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (Aug. 25, 2020) – The Fourth Annual Saratoga Motorcar Auction will be held Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020 in Saratoga Springs, New York. Over 200 collectible vehicles plus Automobilia will be awarded to the highest bidder. The live auction benefits the Saratoga Automobile Museum.
"We are excited to have Christine among our consignments," said Bill Windham, Saratoga Motorcar Auctions Director. Ask anyone to name a movie car, and most will immediately think of Christine, the famous 1958 Plymouth Fury from the 1983 movie by the same name. "Cars that have been featured in popular movies have traditionally brought strong dollars and been a favorite among serious car collectors." said Windham. (For more information on the real Christine check out this article at https://barnfinds.com/the-real-christine-1958-plymouth-fury/)
Other interesting consignments include an IMSA Thompson-Yenko Corvette with extensive vintage racing history, a 1970 "Boss 429" Mustang in Grabber Blue, and an exceptional 1931 Pierce-Arrow Model 42 Dual Cowl Phaeton with built-in bar for rear seat passengers, offered at no reserve.
Many auction houses have converted to online-only events in 2020, but the Saratoga Motorcar Auction is moving ahead with a live event. "Our live auction will include bidders and consignors only and all participants, including the auction team, will be expected to wear masks and observe social distancing whenever possible," shared Carly Connors, Executive Director of Saratoga Automobile Museum. "Our live auction is meant to be a fun and engaging way to support the Museum through a passion for collector cars."
"This Auction is an excellent place for people to get their feet wet buying or selling a car at an auction. Our friendly team is more than happy to walk people through the process from start to finish," said Windham. "There's still time to consign that family heirloom one may be contemplating selling and it's a terrific way to help the Museum at the same time."
