was raked-in by seven collector car auction companies in January 2015 which is a moderate increase over last January 2014 that hovered around $322 million dollars. These are still big numbers that show that collector cars and Corvettes are desirable and sought after commodities. Highlights

As 2014 was drawing to a close, Hagerty, the classic car valuations and insurance leader reports North American classic car auction sales had reached a $1.3 billion total for the year. Powered by strong third quarter auctions, 2014 sales surpassed the $1.2 billion witnessed in 2013. Hagerty predicts 2015 will see slower growth after five years of consistent double-digit increases with more modest gains – approximately 5% - across the entire classic car market. This shows that the popularity of Corvette collecting in on the rise. Questions or comments? Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
