Barrett-Jackson is pleased to have been selected to sell the Ron Pratte Car and Automobilia Collection. Ron is internationally reconized for his car collection but what most people don't realize is that he also accumulated an amazing 1,600 piece automobilia collection. We will be selling the collection January 10-18 in Scottsdale Arizona. All of the automobilia will be selling at No Reserve including 104 porcelian neon signs, over 800 tin and porcelain signs, 160 gas pump globes, 66 of the rarest pedal cars ever assembled plus more. There will be live, phone, absentee and internet bidding available.
We're still wrapping up cataloging his items but there's over 1500 pieces viewable on the on-line docket with more being added daily.

Here's a link:

Also today (Saturday December 13) Velocity Channel (281 on Direct TV) will be broadcasting a one hour special on his cars and automobilia at 3:00 PM Central time.

Regards,
Rory

Rory,

Is there any chance Velocity will be broadcasting any of the Automobilia auction this year, considering the magnitude of this collection?

Robert,
Unfortnately Velocity will only be broadcasting the car auction but will be showing highlights from the Automobilia Auction. I need Old Gas members to email Velocity expressing that they would love to see Autobilia broadcast also and hopefully in the future based upon deman it will happen.

Mike,
Mr. Pratte built one of the finest collections of Cars, Airplanes and Automobilia the world has ever seen and is now moving on to other interests including builiding a private race track at the Dunes. He also wants to spend more time flying and seeing the world. Ron worked extremely hard in life for everything he has and is a very charitable and philanthropic person. A true role model for us all.

Regards,
Rory

If Ron had it I can imagine it is prime stuff.

Those globes would be awesome if they weren't upside down.

Rbonitz,

If you had a chance to see the television show or have seen pictures of the museum…the way Ron displayed his globes created a beautiful look…truly impressive.

We photographed all of the globes as they were hanging for the catalog. Since then they have all been taken down and the lenses have been rotated to proper placement (without any being damaged).

Regards,
Rory

Thanks Rory. I was just kidding. Have been thinking of trying to hang some of my globes...but I'd be too chicken to hang a glass one. Looking forward to the auction.

If you buy the entire collection do you get the building for free to display it all? LOL, Should be quite the auction! Sad to see such an awesome collection go. Hopefully a good amount of it stays here on US soil.

At first, it looked pretty good. But I think the "That Good" looks kinda computer generated.


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.
