RM Auctions to put the Sam Pack Collection under the hammer
The renowned Texan entrepreneur and car collector amassed the collection over a lifetime (even opening the Pack Automotive Museum to showcase them), but recently enlisted RM and Auctions America to help reduce it to a more manageable level. As a result, more than 130 cars – ranging from a 1920s Ford Model T to a 2012 Mustang Boss – will be sold at the single-collection sale with ‘no reserve’ attached.
A lifelong passion
“I’ve had a love affair with cars since I was a teenager; it’s in my DNA,” says Pack, whose family has (fortunately) supported his passion: “They get as much joy out of the cars as I do.” And the winning bidders might be able to persuade their own families to do the same, as Pack has clearly been selective in his choices. “My collecting philosophy is simple: buy what I like, but always with an emphasis on quality.” The sale will take place at the Pack Automotive Museum on 14 and 15 November 2014; the full lotlist can be found in the Classic Driver Market.
