Dick’s Classic Garage car museum in the Texas Hill Country has recently closed, and now close to $1 million worth of classic vehicles and vintage car paraphernalia is headed to auction on Saturday, January 12. Those interested in viewing items prior to the sale can do so on Friday, January 11 between 12 and 6 p.m., as well as Saturday, January 12 between 8 and 10 a.m. In conjunction with the live auction, an internet sale will run simultaneously. However, visitors are encouraged to physically come to the site and view the items. The worth of this collection from the San Marcos museum is rare to see in a single auction. And this is only a portion of it. According to the auction house, the main car collection, estimated at approximately $10 million in value, will be sold at a later time.
