(WXYZ) - Some of the rarest and most collectible cars in America are cruising into Novi, this week-end, for the Classic Motorcar Auction. The event will take place both Saturday and Sunday and include more than 150 vehicles.
Bob Lichty, the auction organizer, says the event is for car lovers of all ages. "Many of these vehicles will never be made again. There is a push now for electric vehicles. These V-16s and Hemis are disappearing. As they go away, the ones that remain get more valuable."
Some of the gleaming beauties that are heading for the auction block include a pristine 1949 Mercury with a flawless blue paint job, and two rare 1941 convertibles.
The Classic Motorcar Auction takes place Saturday and Sunday, April 21st and 22nd, 2012, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
Doors open at 9 AM. Tickets are $10 per day or $15 for the week-end.
