TULSA, Okla. — The Dan Kruse-Leake Collector Car Show and Auction just announced this week the addition of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to their San Antonio line-up. The Challenger was featured in the movie “The Bucket List”, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. This car was built by Picture Car Warehouse specifically for the movie.

“They did not spare any expense building this car,” stated Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “The Challenger is equipped with a 5.7 Liter Hemi Crate Motor, magnum force front end, and Wildwood cross drilled brakes. Just the fact that Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman used this car in “The Bucket List” is sure to generate excitement.”

The buyer of the Challenger will also receive a certificate of authenticity from Picture Car Warehouse, a framed movie poster from “The Bucket List” as well as an autographed photograph of Jack Nicholson with a certificate of authenticity.

As well, the auction will include the 2001 Harley-Davidson Night Train motorcycle that will be featured in “Transformers 2, Revenge of the Fallen” movie, slated for release on July 3, 2009. The motorcycle has been customized by Southern California’s HYEVON with the following options: Harland kit with 180 rear tire, performance machined wheels and brakes, custom HYEVON paint and rear fender.

A 1952 GMC truck from Tim Allen’s upcoming movie “Crazy on the Outside” will also be auctioned. The motor, transmission, rear end, front suspension and brakes have been replaced with Corvette parts. The truck comes with the movie decals for the doors, autographed picture of Tim Allen and a framed poster from the hit TV show “Madmen.”
