Some people just know how to collect things, Nick Alexander is one of those people. Not content with owning just one classic car, Mr. Alexander (you may recognize the name if you live in Southern California from the Alexander BMW / Mini stores) set out to amass a collection of wood trimmed Ford and Mercury “woodies” that represented every aspect of the style, restoring many with painstakingly detail. After assembling one of (if not) the finest collection of woodies in the world, Mr. Alexander has decided to pass along the beautiful automobiles (for what I’m sure will be a healthy sum of money) this coming August 12th & 13th at the Sports & Classics of Monterey auction which coincides with the renowned Pebble Beach Concours dâ€™Elegance.
The remarkable collection must be a sight to see in its entirety in person. If you are in Northern California and have forty bucks, that is exactly what you can do. The New York Times had a little teaser on the Nick Alexander collection at Pebble Beach in this weekend’s paper. More photos of the collection below.
