On Saturday, March 26, Classic Motorcar Auctions will hold its second antique auto and memorabilia at the John S. Knight center in downtown Akron. This is an outstanding venue for this type of event during the last doldrums of March. Bob Lichty, the owner of the auction company, has done a great job with his staff in assembling a nice variety of fun automobiles with examples to appeal to the novice collector as well as the seasoned automotive connoisseur.

 The doors will open for previewing the cars at 9:00a.m. The auction will begin at 11:00 with a nice selection of memorabilia to decorate your garage, office or den. The first car should cross the block right around noon and the auction action should remain fast and furious until all of the estimated one hundred cars have had their time in the spotlight.

 For more information on how to participate as a spectator, bidder or consignor, visit A comprehensive list with photos of all of the featured lots can also be viewed on the website. A certain orange Packard has caught my eye, so I'll definitely be there. Check out the website and make a comment about the car you would most like to win.

I was at the auction and felt that it was a very well run event. I bought a car and two of my friends sold cars. We were dealt with very professionally; my title came within a week and my friends received payment within five days. Very few of the large auction houses can claim that kind of performance. Additionally, as Frank noted, the hospitality was outstanding.

Frank is correct in stating that the memorabilia auction went on longer than it should have but his sales percentages are way off. According to the notes I kept on my auction sheet (and I was there for the entire sale), approximately 40% of the cars were sold. I'm sure the auction company would have liked a higher sell-through but it seemed that several sellers had set unreasonably high reserves on their cars.

Overall, I believe the sale was a success and a great event to be held in our community during a typically dreary time of year. I look forward to their next sale.

Sell access to government surplus auctions with rock bottom prices. Automotive shoppers fall in love with the prospect and you profit handsomely!

Uh-oh frank pelly wrote in all caps. Just because your car didn't sell doesn't mean its a deep rooted conspiracy ran by underground mob bosses running a money laundering system.

It was the 2nd annual not 20th annual auction, so likely there is not a real big following yet. Or was it suppose to be Barrett-Jackson Akron edition
