Silver Car Aution:  January 17-18, 2014, Silver has skillfully established a solid reputation for auctioning affordable collector cars in this January-in-Arizona extravaganza. Silver’s auction continues to grow each year because it is filling a much-needed auction alternative. Thousands of buyers and sellers want an auction where they can buy and sell in an arena that they are personally comfortable in. Silver provides that alternative for the greater Phoenix area since 1992. Silver’s Fort McDowell auction offers real buyers and sellers, real cars and real deals. Held at Fort McDowell Casino, for more information go to Silver Auction.  Gates open both days at 8:00 am, admission is $20.

Russo and Steele:   Held in Scottsdale near the 101 and Scottsdale Road, European sports cars, American muscle cars, hot rods and customs are the focus at Russo and Steele. The organization refers to the auction as an event “for enthusiasts by enthusiasts.”  In 2014, they are continuing with their signature “Auction in the Round” format, and will offer 5 days of Auction excitement and over 700+ classic cars.  January 15-19, check out more at Russo and Steele.

RM Auctions:  Beginning as a car restoration company in 1976, RM Auctions has grown into a well-respected investment-grade collector car auction company, offering the finest motor cars to a discerning clientele. Collectors and admirers of vintage automobiles flock to Arizona each winter, and RM Auctions is high on the list of must-attend classic car auctions. In October 2011 RM Auctions sold the world’s oldest running motor car, a historic 1884 De Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout, for an impressive $4.62 million. That was a record!  January 15-17 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel.  For more information:  RM  Auctions
