Higgenbotham Auctioneers International (HAI) hosted a crowd of 500 plus spectators and bidders at the 2nd Annual Lake Mirror Classic Car Auction on Saturday in downtown Lakeland Florida. The auction featured forty-one classic and high dollar vehicles.
Conducting the auction from a refurbished trolley car, HAI Founder and President, Marty Higgenbotham commented, “We have some excellent vehicles for you today,” as he laid out the auctions terms and conditions. “It doesn’t matter were you go, today here are some of the best automobiles available on the collectors market. Now you can watch auctions on TV and wish you were there or you can raise your hand and take one of these beauty’s home. The choice is yours but they are going to go,” Higgenbotham concluded as he whipped bidders into a frenzy as car after car crossed the red carpet.
HAI offered online bidding through their website at Higgenbotham.com and 66 bidders took advantage of the live auction interface. James Drew commented, “HAI’s online interface is easy to use and very intuitive. It’s just like being at the auction.”
The Lake Mirror Classic is considered one of the “must do” collector car shows in the southeastern United States. The display of more than 600 show vehicles on and surrounding the restored 1920’s, art deco-inspired Lake Mirror promenade in downtown Lakeland, Florida provides one of the most scenic venues in the country.
The event is known for its beautiful lakefront setting and friendly atmosphere. In addition to attracting over 35,000 spectators, the Lake Mirror Classic draws top car collectors from the southeast and serves as a support event to the prestigious Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
The Lake Mirror Classic has become a source of pride for the city of Lakeland. Area residents and public officials welcome the opportunity to showcase Lake Mirror Park and historic downtown to thousands of visiting car show guests. The event has helped raise $250,000 for various local non-profit groups since its inception in 1999.
