Russo and Steele auction reopens Sunday


The Russo and Steele collector car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., will reopen Sunday morning, and the firm will hold auction sessions on Sunday and Monday.

The auction was closed Friday and Saturday after high winds Thursday night ripped two tents from their anchors. Some cars on the site were damaged by debris or rain water.

In a posting on the company's Web site, auction CEO Drew Alcazar said, "There were a lot of cars with halos around them that did not sustain any damage."

Alcazar met Saturday morning with people who had consigned cars to the auction. The consignors were then allowed to check on their cars. But the auction site was kept closed to the public all day Saturday as cleanup work continued, and forecasts calling for more rain and wind.
