Auction Fever Hits Akron

By Steven S. Brooks Published: August 21, 2009

If you're like me, you've watched the big Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions on TV and wondered why we don't have events like that closer to home. The fact is that, up until very recently, collector  car auctions were illegal in the state Ohio.

Bob Lichty, president of Classic Motorcar Auctions in Canton, worked with his state legislators and recently had the laws changed to formally allow these types of events in Ohio. As a result, the first  auction of it's kind will be held at the John S. Knight Center in Akron on August 29-30.

A wide variety of collector cars is expected from pre-war Classics to
ever popular '50's Chevys. This is a great opportunity to see a very
cool event without traveling to Scottsdale and, quite possibly,
acquiring the car of your dreams. Check out the auction's website
at www.classicmotorcarauctions.com.
