Eclectic collection of orphan cars headed to auction


“For Mr. (Raymond) Andrews it was more fun in the ‘hunt’ for old cars. He loved finding them and bring them home to add to his collection,” VanDerBrink Auctions says in its online catalog of the upcoming sale of the Andrews Collection in Clear Lake, Iowa.

The auction, featuring unusual or “orphan” vehicles, is scheduled for September 8 at the Hidden Lakes Campground.
