FULL VIDEO REPORT
RICK WALKER / SST CAR SHOW
A last minute flurry of consignments has added some real spice to an already impressive and eclectic mix of collector cars being offered for sale this weekend at the Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction - produced by Collector Car Productions.
The mix of cars has grown to include not just automobiles, but some special interest vehicles and even motorcycles. A three wheeled "Slingshot", and a 2010 Indian Darkhorse are among the additions that are in the motorcycle or non-automotive groupings. There is even a motor-home up for grabs.
A 1944 Indian Chief Motorcycle will also be turning heads. The Indian is rare and in need of some TLC, but it is so unique, and these bikes are so desirable, there is no doubt there will be serious bidding taking place when it winds up under the lights on the auction block.
The sale is Canada's largest collector car auction. It is open to the public and has become a spectacle that provides entertainment for families, and a venue for car enthusiasts to gather marking the end of the outdoor car show season.
Inside the International Centre in Mississauga there will be hundreds of cars crossing the auction block and on display. The size of the event, and the number of cars involved makes the auction one of the biggest indoor car shows in Canada by default.
