Collector car auction, show coming
A Red Deer company that specializes in the sale of collector cars will hold its seventh annual Red Deer Speed Show and Collector Car Auction at Westerner Park March 15 to 17.
EG Auctions (formerly known as The Electric Garage) plans to auction more than 100 classic vehicles, with these ranging from a 1930 Ford Model A to a 1969 Plymouth Cuda Formula S Fastback. Another 50 will be on display and competing for cash prizes in the car show, said EG Auctions president Todd Schwindt.
On hand will be Brett (Big Schwag) Wagner, host of Speed Channel’s Pass Time; Ian Roussel, whose vehicle builds have been featured on Speed Channel’s Car Warriors; and car artist Michael Irvine.
A variety of celebrity memorabilia will also be auctioned off during the three-day event, with these including items signed by the likes of musicians Jim Morrison, Bob Marley and Bruce Springsteen, and actors John Wayne, Clint Eastwood and Marilyn Monroe.
Friday’s hours will be 5 to 9 p.m., with the cars available for viewing and a memorabilia auction at 7 p.m.
On Saturday, doors will open at 9 a.m., with sales starting at 10:30 a.m. and the day’s events wrapping up at 9 p.m. Sunday’s hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the auction beginning at noon.
In addition to the Red Deer Speed Show and Collector Car Auction, EG Auctions organizes a fall sale in Red Deer each year, as well as annual collector car auctions in Edmonton, Calgary and Penticton, B.C.
It also brokers deals between car buyers and sellers year-round, through Internet marketing, classified advertising and eBay auction hosting.
