Known best for its white sandy beaches and, what seems like, its infinite number of golf courses, its something else that takes center stage on the tranquil barrier island Halloween weekend – world class automobiles. Auctions America just announced the newest addition to its 2015 schedule of events, a collector car auction on Hilton Head Island as part of the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance. The sale, featuring approximately 100 investment-grade vehicles, will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, at The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.
From American classics to European sports cars, the Hilton Head Island Auction will shine the spotlight on a broad variety of automotive styling and engineering.
