"We are very excited to offer this classic car collection at online only auction," said Bonnette. "We are especially pleased to offer not one, but two '68 Shelby GT500's up for bid - a GT500KR and a GT500 convertible - both are numbers matching with Marti Reports. We've also got a 2005 Ford Mustang GT up for bid. These are a hot ticket right now."
"These are more than cars," commented Bonnette. "These are works of fine collectible art that not only appreciate in value, but can also be enjoyed now and make memories for generations."
"After all, that's why we are in love with these machines, for the experience of it," she explained. "We seek them, we hunt for them, we pine for them, we dream about what they will be when they are restored ... that's the romance we have with the classic cars."
Some of the other cars up for bid include: a '61 Chevy Impala SS; a '69 Camaro Z/28 numbers matching; a '64 Chevy Malibu SS; a '69 Dodge Charger R/T; a '55 Willy's custom pickup; and a 2010 Maserati Gran Turismo convertible.
"According to Super Chevy Magazine, only 453 Impala Super Sports were built," Bonnette noted. "They estimate that only five to ten percent of these remain. We are pretty excited to have one up for auction. It should make for some spirited bidding!"
"We also have 2 dragsters on the block," said Bonnette. "A custom 2008 Murph McKenny Chassis Scott Sheffield 540 CID 7.90 top fuel dragster and a Chevy Corvette Pro Mod that will run 770's all day long at 180mph."
