The summer GAA Classic Car Auction is shaping up to be an interesting event. Not only has COVID-19 rewired the way auction houses are hosting sells, this has been a record time for auction companies. While many people speculated that the collector car market would take a hit, it seems like the opposite is happening, with enthusiasts investing in cars at a higher rate than expected. Here are some of the best No Reserve cars that will cross the auction block this week.
This mid-engine Japanese supercar is a highly collectible modern classic, with prices that position it in a reasonable price range. The example at GAA is a right hand drive model that just might sell for a bargain for the right bidder.
-Owner states less than 86K original miles
-Import Honda NSX with right hand drive
-17-inch Enkei aluminum wheels with Kumho ZR rated performance tires
-Silver exterior with Black leather interior
-Power Black leather bucket seats
-Power windows, power door locks, and power mirrors
-Cruise control and driving lights
-Kenwood DDX364 Excelon CD stereo system with Sirius XM
-First year mid-engine NSX supercar with low miles
The Cougar is a true American classic, that’s always been a little different than other V8 powerered sedans. One would come just shy of calling it a muscle car, even though it shares a lot of the same parts as a Ford Mustang. This clean example would be fantastic for top down summer cruises.
-351 cubic-inch engine
-103K original miles
There’s a few factors to thank for the skyrocketing rise in the popularity of older SUVs, and this Blazer might be the smartest thing you buy this year, if you’re looking to cash in on the craze. The next buyer can swoop it up, restore it, and sell it when it dives deeper into the vintage zone in a few years, or have one cool daily driver to keep around.

-New tires in April 2020
-All original interior and mechanical

TH0096 – 1991 Land Rover Defender
Vintage Military vehicles have always had a niche following, but they’ve become more mainstream in recent years. This Land Rover Defender doubles as both a Military collectible, and SUV that will appeal to the off-road market.
-Ex-British Army Defender
-New timing belt
-New rear main seal
FR0062 – 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
The third-generation Camaro has had a curious and fascinating rise to the top of the modern American muscle/classic market. While popular in its own day, it had a few awkward years when it was regarded as the underdog of the f-body family, only to make one of the biggest comebacks of all time in the last 7 years. Now, this generation Camaro is highly-deserable, and hard to find in this kind of condition.
FR0229 – 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
The Cutlass is another vehicle on the list that skirts the lines of being a muscle car, without actually making the cut for most people. It has an agressive appearance, beefy engine, and is a two-door sedan, combined with mid-range luxury options that appealed to a broader crowd than most cars.
-Owner believes to be 51K miles on the clock
-Comes with original build sheet
-Bucket seats with Console
-Original seat covers
-Power disc brakes
-350 cubic inch engine
FR0242 – 1962 Chevrolet Corvette
Not putting a reserve on a 1962 Corvette might seem insane, but it also might be a brilliant move by the owner. The iconic last year model of the first-generation Corvettes is a highly-coveted collector car, and fuelie ‘Vert.

-RF Coded 360-hp 327 cubic inch fuel injected engine

TH0047 – 1985 Chevrolet S10
This small size truck is a model that’s had many hits, and for different reasons, throughout the years. 1980s trucks are hot now because the vintage truck niche is doing so well, but it’s also a truck that had success in the mini truck performance market of the early 2000s. Given the modifications, and beefy tires at the rear, this S10 can probably move!
-Pro Street Truck
-350 cubic inch engine with aluminum heads and intake, Holley carb
-Turbo 350 automatic transmission
-Manual valve body
TH0022 – 1995 Toyota Tacoma SR5
The Toyota Tacoma trucks representive another class of mini/small size trucks, but it’s a little different than the S10 above. While the S10 is more performance orentintaed, this Tacoma is a do-it-all kind of truck, with a set of beefy tires and wheels, and the suspension to make it a killer off-roader, or fun weekend truck. Not to mention, it has a manual transmission, so it’s going to be a fun truck to drive!
