If you grew up in a metropolitan area where used-car dealers could afford to advertise on television, you may remember a guy in a flamboyant sports coat interrupting your evening’s entertainment to tell you about all the great, low-mileage beauties waiting for you on the lot.
We’re not comparing Worldwide Auctioneers to those hucksters of a bygone era, but the Indiana-based collector car auction house does have quite a few low-mileage cars on the docket for its 17th annual Texas Sale, scheduled for April 21 at the Arlington Convention Center, which is near the homes of the Dallas Cowboys football team and the Texas Rangers baseball team.
