One family’s exceptionally diverse car collection is going to auction

The father and son team of Paul and Chris Andrews have partnered with RM auctions to find a home for three-quarters of their excellent classic car collection. The 100-strong collection is as varied as it is exceptional, from vintage american pickups to exotic European sports cars.

Carefully researched and preserved collection was a shared hobby between the two family members, the senior a successful entrepreneur and the younger Andrews a businessman artist. As for why they wished to pair down the collection, it was a matter of preference. “We want to get down to a smaller number of cars – perhaps 15 to 20 – that we very much enjoy driving and that we can use on events with the family. There are a number of events we’d still like to try overseas and here in the United States, and in order to do that, we need to focus on a more manageable collection,” says Chris.

Among the collection can be found a variety of different examples of automotive history, such as a 1963 Shelby 289 Competition Cobra, Lamborghini Countach, and a ’67 Toyota Fj45 Land Cruiser pickup. All the vehicles going to the auction block will be offered without reserve, going home and joining the collections of the highest bidders.
