RM Auctions Auburn, IN Spring 2018

If you are a car guy, or gal, one of the things you need to do is attend a car auction. I have done so several times and almost always have a bidder’s card but have yet to purchase or sell a car at auction so I am certainly no expert. My wife and I […]

Looking for a Collector Car?

Looking for a Collector Car?

Changes in the Collector Car Market: In recent years the collector car market seems to have made a few twist and turns. Some of what used to be undesirable is now considered in. What was once a premium ride may now be considered common and what we thought would never be cool is. In my […]

1963 Pontiac Tempest Daytona Speed Week Diecast-SOLD OUT

1963 Pontiac Tempest Daytona Speed Week Diecast-SOLD OUT

The 250 mile Challenge cup race was a way for NASCAR to generate money through ticket sales during Speed Week and to bring in a different crowd who wanted to see exotics being raced. Those people came for the exotics like the Ferrari GTO but instead got to see one of Pontiac’s great shining moments […]

1969 Ford Torino and Fairlane Reproduction Parts

1969 Ford Torino and Fairlane Reproduction Parts

It seems like you can order up almost any part you need for a new Mustang or Camaro and a slew of different Mopars but if you own a 1968/69 Ford Torino or Fairlane or similar Mercury Cyclone you are out of luck. We certainly are a long way from ever being able to do […]

1940 Chrysler; Worlds Fair Car?

1940 Chrysler; Worlds Fair Car?

The cars are cool but it is the stories and documentation that makes them really interesting. There are still cars out there to be found and still more untold stories. Every once in awhile I get a contact from someone who swears they have the long lost Prototype of some special car. Are they right […]

If you are into old futuristic automotive styling art I have some terrific examples you may want to explore. Frank Walton, plucky033@gmail.com. These always intrigue me.

Was Your 2015 Collector Car Purchase a Good One?

Was Your 2015 Collector Car Purchase a Good One?

The collector car market has had its ups and downs over the past few years. Some of the cars have made dramatic gains recently while others have remained rather flat in value. A recent article by Graham Kozak of AutoWeek opened my eyes to some rather un expected change in values for some of the collector cars. […]

Fixer Upper: 1966 Olds Toronado Part 2

Fixer Upper: 1966 Olds Toronado Part 2

First Inspection Our Project 1966 Oldsmobile Torodado Fixer Upper arrived recently but it would not start. It had to be pushed off of the multi-car hauler. However, as soon as we got it in the driveway, shot a spray of raw gas into the carb and hooked up a jumper battery it fired right up. It […]

Fixer Upper

Fixer Upper

We are going to start a new series of posts here on www.LegendaryCollectorCars.com called Fixer Upper. Although I love the high end cars that are beautifully restored, restomoded or customized they generally fall into the “dream” category for most enthusiasts. The reality is that most of us can only afford a nice driver car and […]

1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe Art Print

1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe Art Print

One of my favorite cars to drive and play with was a 1963 Corvette split window coupe. Mine was a mild custom with the full on 1970s style custom paint. It was my daily driver, a show car and weekend auto crosser; try that sometime. It drove me nuts, I was always afraid to park it […]

Collector Car Auction

Most likely you are like a lot of gearheads you have watched hours and hours of collector car auctions on TV but have never been to one. You may have never even attended an auction of any kind. I have been to many auctions and it is real entertainment even if you don’t intend to […]

Aero Car Values

Aero Car Values

Since we just got through the first round of the Collector Car Auction Season I thought it might be good to take a look at what one of the expert’s opinions are on Aero Cars. If you are not familiar with these, they are the 1969 and 1970 Detroit NASCAR Specials. The factory boys were […]

Second Round of Aero Cars Going Up for Auction at Mecum

Second Round of Aero Cars Going Up for Auction at Mecum

CORRECTION: The Blue Talladega was mistakenly previously listed as the $110,000 from last year but it was not. The early photos on the BJ site showed the car from the previous year.

Aero Cars go to Auction at Barrett Jackson in 2015

Aero Cars go to Auction at Barrett Jackson in 2015

Even though we love our Dodge Daytona we also have a couple of the Ford brand Aero Cars, a 69 Ford Talladega and a 69 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II. The value difference between a Daytona and one of the Fords is ridiculous. You can buy a handful of the Fords for the price of one […]

Got a Hemi? Get a Small Block Hemi!

Got a Hemi? Get a Small Block Hemi!

Few will argue that there is any engine with more prestige and bragging rights than the Hemi. Higher values also seem to go hand in hand with the Hemi; watch a MOPAR go across the auction block at any of the big auctions and as soon as the auctioneer says it has a Hemi the […]

Helping You Purchase Your Collector Car

Helping You Purchase Your Collector Car

There is one thing that prevents many of us from purchasing that Legendary Collector Car of our dreams…MONEY. Until recently I believed no one would lend money to purchase a collector car or a classic car. That all came to an end when I became aware of Woodside Credit. When I sold our 1969 AMC […]

Project “Bulls Eye” 1963 Dodge Dart GT; Part 3

We have started on Project Bulls Eye and so far so good. I called around to some friends and found another 14 inch wheel from a Dart with a tire mounted on it. It is a steel radial, I know this because I can see the steel coming out of the tread! That’s ok, it […]

Tired of all the high dollar “I’m scared to drive it!” muscle cars? Tired of high horsepower gas gulping collector cars? We love these kinds of cars but even more we love to drive our old cars. Most of the time these two desires are in conflict with each other. Therefore we have jumped off in […]
