Jay Leno’s 2000 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson sold for $200,000 with proceeds going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Leno was on hand to promote bidding. Burt Reynolds was also in the house to help see the original 1977 “Smokey and the Bandit” Trans Am across the block. It went for $550,000.

A new 2016 Ford Focus RS sold for $550,000 with proceeds benefitting the JDRF Diabetes Foundation. A 2016 Chevrolet COPO Camaro sold for $500,000 with 100% of the hammer price benefiting Kettering University.
