Sixty-five collector cars and 120 pieces of automobilia from a single collection will be auctioned – all at no reserve – in Waxahachie, Texas, on Saturday as Motostalgia offers the McPherson Collection to the highest bidders.

Motostalgia describes the collection with such words as “eclectic” and “diverse,” noting that it is comprised of British, European and American cars, trucks, classics and sports cars, from pre-war through modern exotics and muscle cars.

The collection is owned by the McPherson brothers, Glen and Dale, who also own and operate Retro Motors, a classic car dealership in Waxahachie that they describe on their website as “a labor of love founded around a shared passion for cars genetically infused by our dad, Orville.”

A rare 1958 Facel Vega coupe is part of the collection

The auction will take place at the McPhersons’ main vehicle warehouse in Waxahachie, which is south of Dallas. The auction coincides with the NHRA Fall Nationals at the Texas Metroplex motorsports complex, located about a mile away from the auction site.

“The McPherson brothers are passionate about two things: cars and diligent care,” according to a Motostalgia news release. “Their collection was assembled with the main focus of gathering the cars that they loved and finding the best example of each model.

“The result was a diverse collection that showcased their eclectic taste and passion for meticulous care.”
