America’s Most Prolific Car Collector Is Selling His Entire Collection

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona is one of the biggest auto sales events of the entire year. For the last decade, it’s been about what one man, Ron Pratte, would buy. But in 2015 he’s selling every single car he owns at that auction, including a GM Futurliner. And he hasn’t given a reason.”

” The notoriously private Pratte has a car collection with some of the most significant cars in the world. He got his start in 2003 when he bought 52 (that’s not a typo) cars at the Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, and he’s been coming back ever since. His collection includes the aforementioned Futurliner, one of two Shelby Super Snakes, and the first production Ford Thunderbird, among other crazily significant cars.”
