Classic car buffs, especially those with lots of money to spend, may want to head to the Gaylord Texan next Saturday.
A collection of 175 automobiles, owned by longtime Texas car dealer and Houston Rockets basketball team owner Charlie Thomas, will be auctioned.
The collection includes many classic convertibles, muscle cars from the `60s and premier names from the glory days of the American auto industry.
Thumbing through the catalog, here’s a sample of what will be on sale: a 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner convertible and a 1965 Mustang convertible; a 1956 Chevy Bel Air Nomad station wagon and a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 Coupe; a 1946 Chrysler Town & Country roadster and a 1953 Mercury Monterey station wagon.
