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.
The auction is scheduled for early May, being held in Fort Worth, TX. Lots being sold from the stunning and diverse collection can be seen on RM’s site.
