  1. Seinfeld was a previous owner. Not the current seller. Also, this auction is in Midland, Texas. Not in San Antonio. San Antonio is the home base of the Kruse Family and Business. I just wanted to clear that up. Thanks for the write up.

  2. The other 17 celebrity cars are notable as well. They are currently owned by Jeff Allen of “The Car Chasers” & now “Skidmarks” fame. I believe they are all selling at no reserve.
