Dealers Auto Auction of Oklahoma City (DAA/OKC) celebrates the arrival of the peak summer market with its Mid-Year Party Sale, set for June 26. Planning for a consignment topping 2,000 vehicles and more than $20,000 in giveaways, DAA/OKC promises a full day of fun, food, and prizes to accompany blazing hot action in the auction lanes.
“Our Mid-Year Party Sale is the biggest and most exciting auction in the state of Oklahoma, and we’re all looking forward to a spectacular day of buying and selling,” said Jon Reininger, DAA/OKC general manager.
“A highlight of the day will be the special interest units and Collector Car Corral, which will catch the eye of anyone who loves classics and hot-rods the way we do,” Reininger continued. “Customers from far and wide are bringing their specialty vehicles to show and sell. With so many classic and special interest cars, it may feel more like Hot August nights than mid-June, but it will be a great event for all our customers.”
Topping the list of featured consignors at DAA/OKC’s Mid Year Party Sale are Ally Auto Remarketing Santander Consumer USA, Avis/Budget Group, Littleton Motors, Midwest Car, and Hertz Corp. Smith explains that these consignors are also sponsoring prize giveaways in their lanes. Buyers will qualify for drawings for a flat screen TV (Santander Consumer USA), $100 after every 5th car sold (Littleton Motors), and Garmin GPS units (Midwest Car and Hertz Corp.
At the conclusion of the sale, all buyers and sellers will enter the drawing for a sizzling array of prizes, including 70” flat screen TV’s, barbecue grills and smokers, telephones for home and office, electric key boards, Visa cash cards, microwaves, remote control cars, mountain bikes, cameras, tablets, iPods, surround sound stereo systems, even a popcorn machine.
“A sale like this wouldn’t be complete without great food, and we’re happy to announce that Ross Magness, who managed our café in years past and has catered many a party sale since, will be back to fire up the grill,” said Reininger. “No one can cook for a crowd the way Ross can, and he’s planning a menu that will satisfy even the biggest appetites, with grilled chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, shrimp, hot links, polish sausages, shish kabobs, wings, and gumbo.”
“Summer is here and we’re looking forward to celebrating in a big way at our Mid-Year Party Sale,” concluded Reininger. “We’ll have one of the best selections of vehicles in the region, ranging from late-model, low mileage units to classics, and everything in between, and we know that buyers will be out in force to bid on them all!”
