Auburn, IN. – Worldwide Auctioneers has confirmed that its 17th annual Texas auction will include a No Reserve collection of motorcars, expertly assembled over many years by well-known Texas collector and franchised dealer, Eugene Knies. The Collection of Pamela and Eugene Knies comprises 78 cars, featuring high line exotics and a myriad of low mileage motorcars, spanning the decades. “It is unusual to come across such a striking collection of low mileage and largely original vintage American cars and modern exotics, distinctive for their condition and the obvious care that has been expended on them”, said John Kruse, Principal & Auctioneer. “Mr. Knies was a knowledgeable and passionate collector and we are happy to be in position to offer this outstanding Collection in Texas next month, entirely without reserve”. The Texas Classic Auction is scheduled for Saturday April 21st at the Arlington Convention Center in the Dallas metroplex, close to the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers. The sale will once again run in conjunction with the Concours d’Elegance of Texas, now in its sixth year.
Highlights from The Pamela and Eugene Knies Collection range from street rods such as a 1932 Ford Boydster and 1957 Chevrolet Cameo 3100, to a 1977 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham Coupe (5478 miles), 1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z (541 miles), 2002 BMW Z8 (3673 miles) and a great selection of other extremely low mileage modern exotics including a 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible, 2011 Ferrari California, 2011 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG and 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead.
