Over 100 vehicles to be auctioned off this weekend

Automobile lovers, rejoice.

An auction of approximately 115 vehicles along with vehicle parts will take place on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot Saturday, Aug. 29, starting at 9:30 a.m.

The collection belonged to Minot native Roger Borkhuis, whose love for cars caused him to hunt for, buy and repair these “treasures” throughout his lifetime. He had a love for speed unmatched by many.

The collection includes many Big Block GM cars, from a restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 convertible, many other Chevelles from 1968 to 1972, Corvettes including a 1959 Corvette roadster, Camaros including a 1969 Z28 302 Camaro and a wrecked 1970s Camaro, Tri-Five and Impalas, 1957 Nomad, 1957 2-door HT, 1958 Chevrolet and more.

“There is something for everyone from projects, originals and restored vehicles,” said Yvette VanDerBrink of VanDerBrink Auctions. “It’s a Chevy dream.”

The auction will also be available for online bidding through www.proxibid.com. Everything will be sold no reserve to the highest bidder.
