No matter what the business, the most successful enterprises are the ones who stay on the leading edge. Ontario’s RM Auctions is one of the top automotive auction houses and they didn’t get that way by following the herd.
Most gearheads love nothing more than to wander around an auction, looking at the cars and maybe even bidding on a potential new toy. For many folks though, the time needed to visit an auction site just isn’t practical. For those buyers, RM is holding an online only auction and August 9. That’s right, sit at home, check out the cars and bid at your leisure without worrying about being scooped by someone at the actual event.
If we had the drawer full of gold nickles it would require, I’d be throwing a bid on the 66 Hemi Belvedere up above. You can’t tell me that this monster did not play a huge part in the cruising scene on Woodward Avenue back in the day.
