Now, at 76 years old, Brown is auctioning off his 69-car collection, along with an array of parts.

Classic car collectors brace for an auto tariffs crash

The Trump administration's proposed auto and auto part tariffs may claim an unexpected casualty: The more than 20 million Americans who spend an estimated $1.5 billion annually on classic and antique cars, trucks and motorcycles, according to specialized insurer Hagerty Group. Though many classic car sales are by wealthy collectors and cost in the tens of millions, the average classic vehicle's value is less than $35,000, according to Hagerty Group.
