ROYAL OAK
Some of the country’s top hot rods and classic cruisin’ cars will be up for bid this year at the Woodward Dream Cruise as the world’s largest one-day automotive event holds its very first classic car auction through the American Concours Foundation.
The ACF is facilitating the online auction, with automotive classics available for bid via the eBay Motors Web site, to raise money for the police and firefighters funds from the Dream Cruise’s nine host communities. A selection of cars will be on display during the Aug. 16 event at the Woodward “Dream Show” event at Northwood Shopping Center (Woodward and 13 Mile Road) in Royal Oak. The auction will continue through August of 2009. One of the first items up for bid is a limited edition 2008 Woodward Edition RZ Rod signed by Chip Foose, car customizer and host of TLC’s “Overhaulin’.”
Vehicle owners participating in the auction may designate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their vehicle (from 5 to 100 percent) to the Woodward Dream Cruise. A 501(c)(3) corporation, the American Concours Foundation has raised more than $450,000 for charity through the sale of collector cars over the past three years at such top events as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Meadow Brook Concours.
For sellers, the ACF handles all aspects of the vehicle sale in a turn-key manner, including inspection, photography, online listings, auction management and post-sale paperwork.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day celebration of car culture, attracting more than 1 million visitors and over 40,000 muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and special interest vehicles.
