"My two passions in life, one is auctioneering, I have been doing that for over 30 years, doing the collector cars is my second passion, so I get to put the two together,” he said.

Besides all the cars that were up for bid, there were many pieces of memorabilia that was up for grabs including car parts, a vintage gas pump, and much more.
