Collector Car Productions Auction (a.k.a. RM Auction) Toronto

Michael and I have exhibited his automotive artwork at the Toronto auction for about 3 years now. It's always been a good venue for us, even though we were tucked away in the hall adjacent to the actual auction. In fact, it's been the venue where we've shown many pieces for the first time. And this time is no exception ... we are pre-releasing his next two paintings —both sure to be super hot sellers! And, you may remember, it's where last fall, Michael was interviewed by Old Autos TV!

Recently, Dan Spendick, an RM shareholder and manager of the Toronto auction, purchased the Toronto auction, itself. The auction is now being run by Collector Car Productions, which was the company that the Toronto auctions actually started out with, until RM purchased it from Mr. Spendick about 20 years back. You can find information about the auction on RM's website: Collector Car Classic Car Auction Toronto

At first, we were a bit unsure of what, if any, changes there would be that might affect vendors, like ourselves. I don't know if it's due to the change in ownership, but for us, this year has been great. We've moved into the main hall where the auction is held. And consequently have already met a whole new group of collectors. On another good note, many of the staff that ran and organized the auctions in years past are still there. They are a great bunch and really make the whole experience that much better.

If you're in Toronto this weekend, stop by International Center, Hall 3. The doors open at 9:00 am daily, closing at 9:00 on Saturday, and late afternoon on Sunday. There are some really nice cars as well as some incredible deals to be had.

We hope to see you there. — Linda
