Car enthusasiast from all over South Central Texas have enjoyed this popular auction for the past 37 years. It has been held in San Marcos, New Braunfels and Fredericksburg in past years, and is coming to Austin for the first time.

Approximately 200 cars are expected to be auctioned off at the event, making it the areas big event this season.

We are hoping for a very good crowd of enthusiasts and buyers by holding the event in Austin at the Palmer this year."

1963 Chevy Corvette
Split Window Coupe

One thing I can say, they sure have a lot of convertibles up for sale!

One of my personal favorites is this beautiful, and hard-to-find, 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe! It's rare to find a '63 with the original split window in tact. There was a time when it was common for owners to have the split window taken out and replaced with one piece glass. This proved to be a big mistake.
