Worldwide Auctioneers’ 17th annual Texas Classic sale will feature 78 cars, all offered at no reserve, from the Pamela and Eugene Knies Collection, the auction company has announced.

“It is unusual to come across such a striking collection of low mileage and largely original vintage American cars and modern exotics, distinctive for their condition and the obvious care that has been expended on them”, John Kruse, one of the principals in Worldwide, was quoted in a news release.

“Mr. Knies was a knowledgeable and passionate collector.”
