LINCOLN, NE - Nebraska Auto Auction hosted one of the largest specialty car auctions in the region April 14-15. The Midwest Muscle and Specialty Car Auction featured 400 hot rods, muscle and sports cars, classics, and motorcycles at CenturyLink Center, a premiere facility in downtown Omaha, Neb.

This was the third specialty car event to be hosted by Nebraska Auto Auction, following on the heels of two very successful hot rod sales held in 2011, reported Eric Bigler, president and owner of Nebraska Auto Auction. 

“There’s a tremendous interest in hot rods and classic cars in this area, and we’ve watched the participation grow by leaps and bounds since our first event last April,” said Bigler. 

“We’re pleased to announce that this year’s Midwest Muscle and Specialty Car Auction was also sponsored by Speedway Motors and featured cars from the personal collection of ‘Speedy’ Bill Smith, an icon in the hot rod parts business and a Nebraska native,” added Bigler.

With 400 items in the sale, there’s sure to be something to please any car-lover at the auction, says Bigler.  “The lineup included everything from a 1932 Ford Roadster to a 2007 Mustang Shelby. We’ve even had a Phillips Gas Pump from the 1940’s in the sale!”
