“As the collector car market continues to thrive, Dallas has become an emerging market for new collectors,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “This is the first Dallas Spring sale we have done in quite some time, and the two-day sale was definitely a success. The interest in collector cars is at an all-time high.”
