Vanderbrink Auctions set to sell a treasure trove of Michigan muscle


#1

As the summer sun sets in the Midwest, builders are scrambling to find their upcoming projects for winter hibernation. If you’re one of those builders, Vanderbrink Auctions has a treasure trove for you, all at no reserve. The Tom Brown collection contains an array of mouthwatering projects, ranging from older restorations in need of a simple vetting to rolling shells awaiting a massive overhaul. Not to mention, the auction offers a slew of big-block engine parts to support the process.

Boy, I wish I had some cash to try and buy one of these cars!

Nevertheless, I am happy with my investment in my 68 Dodge Dart GT convertible. It was about all I could afford to buy myself 4 years ago, as a retirment gift to myself. But two years later, I had to rebuild or replace the motor. I was lucky to stumble upon a 1970 340 T/A 6 pack motor restored to factory specs.

More money!

All this being said and looking at the treasure trove of cars on the auction block, I can’t help but wonder,
Will the market ever drop out?
Is there a new generation of gear heads, car nuts, automobile aficionados who will carry the torch?
or are we the last of the Vroom, Vrooms!

Let’s hope not.
