THE MOST EXCITING COLLECTOR AUTOMOBILE AUCTION IN THE WORLD
Russo and Steele was created to provide a highly targeted alternative to the world of collector car auctions. Specializing in European sports cars, American muscle cars, hot rods and customs, Russo and Steele delivers a unique, highly personal and visceral experience in an intimate environment. It is an auction that focuses on the specific needs of primarily the buyers and sellers of high quality collector automobiles.
Embracing decades of experience in collector car restoration and harboring a true passion for quality cars, co-owners Drew and Josephine Alcazar had a very specific design for the type of auction experience they wanted Russo and Steele to embody. Drew developed an auction block that has never been created before or since, and the “Auction in the Round” concept was born.
This incredible auction innovation puts buyers, sellers and spectators right on the floor with the cars, providing an all access, high energy experience with no cars on stages and no separation with a ground level auction ‘arena’ and elevated platform seating 360 degrees around the stage. This creates a virtual ‘boxing ring’ or ‘coliseum’ effect which funnels buyers to the epicenter of the action. The Auction in the Round format thus creates a very interactive auction block now known industry wide to generate not only high levels of excitement, but a sense of urgency and personal emotion resulting in extremely intense and spirited bidding – After all, that is what live auction events are all about!
The principals and staff of Russo and Steele are fellow enthusiasts, actively participating in Concours shows, road rallies, auctions, vintage racing and other collector car events each year. This “for enthusiasts by enthusiasts” approach not only fuels camaraderie between clients, but also produces events that consistently create a long term memorable experience for all attendees.
Russo and Steele takes great pride in being the most knowledgeable and the most in tune Auction Company within the car collecting hobby. This results in the highest quality automobiles at every auction, with the strongest possible results.
