    Ohio collector to auction 700 antique, classic cars in mid-July

    When Ron Hackenberger was 15, he borrowed money from his grandfather to buy his first car: a 1948 Studebaker. Then he kept buying.

    In July, that Studebaker won’t be on sale, but about 700 other vehicles collected by Hackenberger, now 81, will be.

    “I would guess there’s probably going to be a lot of bidding activity,” says Craig Jackson, CEO of Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. VanDerBrink Auctions is handling the sale for Hackenberger, a private collector from Norwalk, Ohio, which is roughly midway between Toledo and Cleveland.

    Private auctions of this size can generate great enthusiasm among classic-car collectors. In 2013, thousands of buyers convened Woodstock-like in a Nebraska field for a weekend auction of nearly 500 vehicles owned by Ray Lambrecht, a former Chevrolet dealer. The auction yielded about $2.8 million in sales.

        3. I bet you're right

        I’d take one of those Citroëns.

      5. My body aches looking at them

      I spent too much time in the past fixing them. I’ll pass.
