St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Lumière Place Casino & Hotels is proud to announce a premier partnership with St. Louis Car Museum & Sales to exhibit some of the world’s finest classic cars, inside Lumière Place. An extremely rare 1932 Deusenberg Model J Tourster valued at $799,900 is one of three automobiles available for purchase in the initial roll-out. To celebrate this new partnership, Lumière Place will also be giving away two classic cars to two lucky guests late summer: A 1958 cascade-green Thunderbird and a cardinal-red 1971 Pontiac GTO.
“We are pleased to feature these beautiful and unique classic automobiles that our guests can either enjoy for viewing or to purchase and enjoy on a great American highway," said President and Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle Entertainment, Anthony Sanfilippo. "The St. Louis Car Museum features classic cars that are sure to evoke many past magical memories from our guests and possibly create new magical moments.”
On exhibit and available for purchase inside Lumière Place: A rare 1932 Deusenberg Model J Tourster; an exceptional 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary Limited Edition; and the unprecedented 1979 Dodge Lil Red Express. Valued at $799,800, the Model J took the Deusenberg brothers 21 months to develop and another 6 months to deliver the most elegant and powerful car ever offered to the public. Less than 485 Model J’s are in existence. The 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary Limited Edition is a virtually untouched classic that survives with just 26,288 original miles on the odometer. Under the same ownership for the last 29 years, it has never been restored or repainted, remaining as true to the original as possible. Finally, the 1979 Dodge Lil Red Express coined the “Adult Toy” was the fastest American-built production vehicle in 1978 and 1979, outrunning the Trans Am, Camaro, Mustang and Corvette, surpassing speeds of 100mph.
“Whether you’re an avid collector or simply passionate about classic cars, these exceptional vintage automobiles are sure to get your heart racing and what better place to showcase them than ‘the pulse’ of St. Louis, Lumière Place,” said John Faust, Sales Manager, St. Louis Car Museum & Sales.
