This year GAA Classic Cars (GAACC) has added an additional spring auction to its lineup of events. March 30 through April 1, 2023, will feature the Jerry Smith No Reserve Collection. The auction will consist of 400 collector vehicles and over 1,000 pieces of memorabilia.
March 30 and 31 will offer the majority of the memorabilia from the late Jerry Smith, at no reserve, followed by 125 vehicles from other consignors each day. On Saturday, April 1, a no reserve, 150 vehicle collection from Memory Lane Classic Car Museum in Hiawassee, Georgia will cross the block. All auctions will take place at the GAACC facility in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The memorabilia consists of gas pumps, neon signs, porcelain signs, pedal cars, NASCAR items, antique tools and toys. Feature pieces include a large Dog N Suds neon sign, an Evan’s gambling wheel, and a couple Tydol large double sided porcelains.
Jerry Smith’s vehicles from Memory Lane Classic Car Museum are a mix of American muscle and hot rods with a large selection from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Remember to take note of a few feature vehicles: the Alpine White 1970 Plymouth Superbird, the 1964 Lincoln Continental convertible with a 5.0L Coyote Engine producing 420hp and the flawless black 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible with an LS3 engine.
Jerry Smith was a longtime customer and good friend of the GAACC team. Jerry was a self-made successful business man, charitable giver and community supporter. In his youth a track car racer and until his passing last June, a passionate collector of hot rods, classic cars and memorabilia. He will be greatly missed.
This additional spring auction is not the only exciting news for 2023. GAACC recently announced the return of general admission for each auction. February’s auction marked the first auction since the pandemic where the public could purchase general admission tickets at the gate. Going forward the daily general admission price per person is $40 and parking is always free.
