Somewhere along the line, car-mad father & son duo, Paul and Chris Andrews, might have gotten a little bit carried away with their hobby. Next month, they’re selling off nearly their entire collection of cars to get down to something “more manageable”. They plan to settle for around 20 cars rather than their inventory of nearly 100 rare and vintage automobiles accumulated over the years, and will be selling them along with a wide assortment of automobile memorabilia that decorated their undoubtedly jaw-dropping garage. Like I said, the garage sale of the century.
But Mr. Andrews Sr. didn’t always have cars coming out of his ears…
In the early 70s Paul worked as a bible salesman after being laid off as a military components buyer for General Dynamics. With just a desk and a red telephone in his wife’s tiny apartment living room, he launched a company brokering electronic parts and some forty + years later, he is CEO of the world’s largest distributor for industrial, military, aerospace and consumer electronics manufacturers.
Other items being cleaned out of the Andrews garage include anything from a 1945 gas-powered child’s car and an original coca cola vending machines to vintage garage tune-up testers and fully-equipped gas pump stations.
There’s also enough neon signs to fill an art gallery up for sale too.
But back to the cars…
From a custom 1932 Ford Roadster ↑ to a 1962 Chevrolet Corvette “Gulf oil” race car ↓, there’s no denying this father & son team have impeccable taste in cars…
