'Rust Valley Restorers' is holding a massive auction of tonnes of cars


Former highway rock scaling contractor Mike Hall got himself his own Rust Valley Restorers TV program – now broadcast around the world – because he was trying to sell more than 400 cars. He had been buying old cars since he was a teenager, and they were scattered over his five-acre property in the tiny hamlet of Tappen, on the Trans-Canada Highway in the centre of British Columbia. […] Now, his cars will be sold at a live auction on Saturday, October 2 as part of season four of Rust Valley Restorers.

Although most of the sale will be for project or parts vehicles, bidders will have the opportunity to buy three restorations completed by Mike Hall and his Rust Valley crew on episodes of the show: a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro; a 1955 Chevy two-door station wagon; and a 1970 Chevy K5 Blazer.

I’ve been watching Rust Valley Restorers for a couple of years and enjoy the show quite a bit. Mike does have a terrible habit of acquiring cars that he can’t do anything with. This auction must be eating him up inside … 😕
