REV UP for the McCormick's 51st Palm Springs Collector Car Auction FRIDAY-SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18-20, 2011 SPA RESORT CASINO Keith McCormick and his family are living their dream lives, hosting one of the most successful exotic car auctions in America from one of the top vacation destinations in the world! What makes McCormick's Palm Springs Collector Car Auctions so unique? "For one thing, our company is family owned, so we never lose the personal contact with our customers. They can pick up the phone and call us anytime with questions," Keith said. He added that most of the company's employees have been with them for over 20 years. "So they're like family. We treat them the way we want to be treated." Each event combines the sale of highend cars with the excitement of a luxury vacation. Keith highlights another important reason the McCormick auctions have become popular with national and international audiences. "Where else can you conduct business in a world-class resort setting, hit the slots, jump in the pool, dine in a Zugat-rated restaurant and hike up a mountain?" The 51st McCormick's Collector Car Auction, held at the Spa Resort Casino in downtown Palm Springs November 1820, 2011, will feature over 500 mint antique, classic, exotic, muscle, sports and special interest autos. Lot numbers are currently for sale. Call (760) 3203290 to book. For general info on the auction and company, visit:
