GAA Classic Cars’ summer auction wrapped up on July 24. After 2 record breaking spring auctions GAACC is proud to announce 91% of July’s auction vehicles sold!
Located at 301 Norwalk Street in Greensboro, NC, GAA Classic Cars Auction (GAACC) consigns vehicles from all over the country with an assortment ranging from pre-war to present day unique vehicles. The auction is held at The Automobile Palace. The facility is owned by GAACC and expanded last year to 5.5 acres of enclosed, climate-controlled auction space. An additional expansion was just announced for 2021 and should be completed before their fall auction in November.
The July auction featured a No Reserve Collection from the former owner of the Charlotte Hornets, George Shinn. The George Shinn collection consists of a mix of vehicles like a 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S and a 1970 Mercedes 280SL to several outstanding Ford Galaxies, Bel Airs, and Mustangs.
Part of Mr. Shinn’s collection featured a bright orange custom ’51 Ford Crown Victoria which George donated to Olympic champion Scott Hamilton’s charity, The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation for cancer research. This vehicle sold for $55,000. In addition to this donation GAACC bidders donated $60,000 for a total of $115,000 for cancer research!
A few noteworthy lots include the custom ‘58 Corvette Resto-Mod built by Jeff Hayes of American Speed Shop. It sold for $190,000 and will head across the globe to its new Arabian home. A very popular ‘70s Chevelle SS 454 sold on Saturday for $250,000 and the low riding ’72 customized Blazer from Street Outlaw’s Shawn Ellington’s shop brought $80,000.
