Texas’s Oldest Classic Car Auction to be Held at Flat 12 Gallery in Lubbock [Audio]
Friday, Chad Hasty hosted his show at the location of tomorrow's Flatland Collector Car Show and Auction, to be held at the Flat 12 Gallery by the stars of CNBC's "The Car Chasers," Jeff Allen, Meg Bailery, and Eric Ables.
The car auction is the oldest in the state. It will begin at 9 a.m. tomorrow, showcasing 175 cars of a variety of types and prices. The auction is open to the public and entry is $5, or free for kids 12 years old and younger. There will be numerous food vendors out at the location. Allen noted that there would be something for everyone who might have a few thousand to spend. When asked what buyers should look for when they are checking out the cars, Allen and Bailey both emphasized a need to look for what you love, as well as being rational about such a purchase.
Tom Souter, also known as the "Roundman" and Allen's father, praised the couple for their success in bringing something like this to West Texas. He said, "I feel like this is an opportunity for the people in West Texas and the Lubbock area to enjoy something that my son and his wife have been brought to the South Plains that's never really been done: a classic car auction." He also noted it would be worthwhile to those who have cars at home that are being worked on to see what cars can be worth.
