Legendary Hot Rod builder Boyd Coddington,
host of TLC’s hit TV show AMERICAN HOT ROD, announces three Boyd Coddington
Collector Car Auctions scheduled for 2007:

1. June 1st and 2nd in Springfield, MO at the Missouri Entertainment
and Events Center

2. August 11th and 12th in Pomona, CA at the Los Angeles Fair Grounds

3. November 2nd and 3rd in Springfield, MO at the Missouri
Entertainment and Events Center

Every Boyd Coddington Collector Car Auction will consign a select 300 cars
of all types, including hot rods, customs, muscle cars, race cars, antique
cars and exotics.

The first auction will be held in Springfield, Missouri on June 1st and 2nd
at the Missouri Entertainment and Events Center. “The Springfield market was
an excellent choice last year in launching our collector car auctions.
From the hospitality of the City of Springfield to the excellent
consignments received and the overall feeling we had for the market, made it
a natural choice to continue our relationship with the city. We sold over $2
million dollars worth of collector cars in our inaugural event and we feel
that we can build on this result in the future,” Coddington said. A second
auction in Springfield will be held on November 2nd and 3rd.

Pomona, California is the host of the second Boyd Coddington Collector Car
Auctions, to be held at the LA County Fairgrounds on August 11th and 12th.
“Southern California is my home, and I felt very strongly that we should
have an auction in this market,” said Coddington.

An exclusive invitation-only gala event kicks off all three Boyd Coddington
Collector Car Auctions in 2007. Expect excellent food & beverage,
entertainment and a charity auction. “At the gala held in Springfield in
2006, over $70,000 was raised to benefit the ‘Arc of the Ozarks’, a local
charity,” said Event Coordinator Stewart Howden. Howden added, “This year
we will have the Gatlin Brothers perform at our Springfield gala and it
promises to be a very exciting event.” Please visit
for more information about attending a gala
event. All collector car auctions are open to the public and ticket prices
are $10 per person. There will be numerous vendors, food courts and
showroom cars that will be for sale. Consignments and bidder registration
are currently being accepted for all three events. For more information
