The collector car market is alive and well. That’s the message we got from the Lakeland Winter Auction here in Lakeland, Florida. In live “in-person” bidding on Saturday top cars got competitive bids, and some strong numbers. As our Cars-On-Line newsletter readers and Facebook fans joined us for the Saturday afternoon action, they saw strong bidding for mid-year Corvettes and resto mod Camaros. The top sale today was a Marina blue 1967 Corvette 427/390 Convertible with only 31k miles. The winning bid was $91,000 after the seller dropped his reserve.
Bidding was active all day. The big action came in the middle of the afternoon as a staccato of top cars crossed the auction block. You can review the taped live auction here on their YouTube Channel by clicking this link.
Here are some of the cars we will be watching on Saturday.
With much of the U.S. frozen in snow and cold, the one place that has escaped the chill is Florida. That’s fortunate for us as we look forward to the Lakeland Winter Auction at the Sun ‘n Fun Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida. The collector car auction will be held Friday and Saturday, February 19-20, 2021.
Every February a trio of airplane hangars come to life as the Lakeland Winter Auction invades the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus. The event, a two-day classic and collector car auction powered by Carlisle Auctions, hosts 400+ pieces of automotive history along with buyers, sellers and a hard-working staff. The Lakeland Winter Collector Car Auction, slated for February 19-20, is a means to connect buyers and sellers with an investment that truly accelerates. More so, the auction is a means to start or add to an existing collection. Some rides are head turners but are ultimately daily drivers. Others are top of the line, best of show type consignments. In between, there are a few that the owner can simply have fun with along the way.
