All three automobiles will premiere at Gooding’s Scottsdale Auctions in Arizona come this January 29th and 30th, 2016.  Then they will officially roll across the auction block on the following March 11 during Gooding’s Amelia Island Auction in Florida.

According to David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company, “We are grateful and honored to be entrusted with these superb examples from the collection of Jerry Seinfeld.  These cars epitomize the highest of quality and pedigree.”

In that same prepared statement from Gooding, Seinfeld is quoted as saying, “I’ve never bought a car as an investment.  I don’t really even think of myself as a collector.  I just love cars.  And I still love these cars.  But it’s time to send some of them back into the world, for someone else to enjoy, as I have.”
