Auto memorabilia auction; Tommy Sparks collection up for bidding

If you're a car lover take a look at these, hundreds of items from Hot Rod Legend Tommy Sparks' personal collection hitting the auction block.

"Everything you can imagine, there's neon signs, clocks, thermometers, everything and anything anybody would want," said Josh Levine. 

Tommy Sparks became an icon in the car world for his ability to design and restore powerful street roadsters, hot rod cars, trucks, and other classic cars.

On Wednesday people had a chance to check out the memorabilia before it goes up for auction.

"There's not many reproductions in here, most of the things in here are all authentic and period restored," he said.

During his life, Sparks collected more than 40 classic cars which are still used in Hollywood films today. Unfortunately, none of those are up for auction, but still this collection is expected to go quick.

"An auction like this will probably be about three hours until we sell everything in this room, it looks like a museum today, and tomorrow it will be empty," said Levine.

The auction begins Thursday morning. J-Levine Auction and Appraisal will open its doors at 9 a.m. and bidding starts at 11.
