Antiques Roadshow Appraisers Open Automotive Auction House

When I was young, I never thought about old things. Why would you want something old when you could have something shiny and new? I was never interested in antiques, but that has certainly changed now that I am somewhat of a relic in my own right.

If you have ever read my posts on this blog, you know that I am a big fan of American Pickers. As a guy who writes about transportation related things, the classic cars, trucks, motorcycles, and parts that those guys come across are very interesting to me.

Keeping historic things alive is a very meaningful endeavor, and that is genuinely part of why I'm interested in antique collecting and classic vehicle restoration. However, I'm human, and I live in the material world, so I also dream of acquiring that crazy bargain that is worth a fortune.

How could these dreams be fueled? One thing that keeps me optimistic is another television show that I look forward to every week. Antiques Roadshow has been on PBS for a good number of years at this point, and I record every episode that I can. Seeing items that were purchased for a song that are now worth a bundle is quite inspiring. Some people might find it to be boring, but to me, each episode is an hour of very cool and educational entertainment.

When I first started watching the show, I was a little confused by an appraiser who was always there. Why is this guy named Keno sometimes called Leslie Keno, and at other times, Leigh Keno? Eventually, I came to recognize the fact that they are actually two different people who are identical twins.

Because of the nature of the show, you might think that these guys would not be the motor head types, but in fact, they say they are car guys first and antique guys second. They have been into classic cars and racing all of their lives, and they have decided to put that passion to work for them.

The Keno brothers have started an automotive auction house that, as you might imagine, is called Keno Brothers Fine Automobile Auctions. They are naming their first auction “Rolling Sculpture,” and it will be held in New York City on November 19th.

There are going to be some amazing cars on the block, including a 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S, a 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Coupe, and a 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona N.A.R.T. Competizione that is expected to go for between $5 million and $6 million.

It should be quite an event, and you can visit their website to obtain more detailed information.
