auction set for this weekend
per the Houston Chronicle, May 3, 2006
What is a very Elegant car and boat show at the Lake Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas. The car show will be Saturday and Sunday, the auction will be Saturday, May 6.
Five cars are expected to sell for more than a million each. The proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston. Most of the time when I hear that organization someone has been sentenced by the court to do public service. Last year the donation to charity from the auction was $6.6 million.
You can see the cars for sale and read about the show at www.theWWG.com (link to the 'list,', complete with pictures). If somebody counts the cars for auction, please tell us in a comment. For the younger guys there are a couple of Shelby Mustangs.
My low budget favorite is a 1940 FORD DELUXE COUPE (link), expected to bring between $40,000 and $50,000.
I also like this 1963 TRIUMPH TR3B ROADSTER (link). They think it will be a little less, between $30,000 and $40,000.
General admission is $20, or $17 advance through www.keels-wheels.com.
