RK Motors Auction Coming To Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.c. – RK Motors Collector Car Auctions (RKMCCA) is bringing its unique brand of automotive auction experience to the world-class Charlotte Convention Center, in Charlotte, N.C., Nov. 1-3, 2013.
Situated in the one of the country’s most automotive-minded regions, and adjacent to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the three-day RKMCCA auction will be the first-ever automotive auction for the facility, as well as the debut of RKMCCA unique benefits, such as on-site experts and a referral program.
With more than 500 world-class hand-selected automobiles expected to cross the stage and an exclusive panel of experts on-site to counsel buyers and sellers, RKMCCA is creating the same concierge-level environment that worldwide customers already enjoy at its sister company RK Motors Charlotte, the nation’s leading retailer of investment-grade classic and high-performance cars and the top automotive destination in the country, according to Hot Rod Magazine.
“Our auction team brings the same passion for accuracy, transparency and building trust that has been the hallmark of our success at RK Motors,” said Rob Kauffman, owner and chairman of his three namesake companies. “In addition to celebrating and preserving the finest collector cars from around the world, our mission is to provide an open and fair marketplace at every RKMCCA auction.”
Verifying the automobile’s provenance and technical correctness is one critical element of achieving that mission, and RKMCCA’s on-site expert panel, along with other partnerships, will play an important role in ensuring consigned vehicles are accurately represented.
Panel members include some of the world’s leading collector car experts, such as award-winning Corvette specialist Kevin Mackay, a 27-year veteran of Corvette restoration and repair and a top Corvette Concours judge, including a quarter century as NCRS Master Judge and Bloomington Gold Benchmark Judge.
Other expert panel members include a who’s who of muscle, performance, race and classic automobiles, including Bob Perkins (Mustang); Rick McLaughlin (Pontiac Trans Am); Mike Haluska (Restoration/Modification/Engineering) as well as other technical and market value specialists for the collector car category’s most coveted brands.
“Classic car enthusiasts can look forward to an action-packed three days in Charlotte, with a wealth of entertainment choices for the whole family,” said Bill Mathews, VP of Auctions, RKMCCA. “For the serious collector, we will also be announcing some very high-profile and rare automobiles over the coming weeks, and we expect an active and successful weekend for the collector car community.”
