Rust Valley Restorers auction to sell off Tappen field full of 500 classic cars

Field of dreams for auction

The future of a popular History Channel TV show filmed in the Shuswap may be up in the air with the sale of a field of dreams, at least for classic car fans.

Electric Garage Auctions is holding a no-reserve live auction of TV personality Mike Hall's 500 cars on Oct. 2 on Hall's Tappen property.

Hall, otherwise known as Rasta Blasta for his signature dreadlocks, is known for his large field of muscle cars and collectibles.

His listing of the property for sale in 2017 led to the TV show Rust Valley Restorers as he tried to liquidate the cars by restoring and selling them.

Now the property has apparently been sold, EG is selling the entire collection.

Only registered bidders will be allowed on the property.

There will be viewing of the vehicles on Thursday, Sept. 30 and Friday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Bidders can also take part via a live stream of the auction.

"Over 500 classic selling to highest bidder," EG Auctions says on its Facebook page.

Despite the question mark over the future of the show, there will be at least one more season coming.

In May, Corus Entertainment announced a fourth season would begin airing in February.

"Rust Valley Restorers follows car fanatic Mike Hall as he barrels into his third year in business with his son Connor at ‘Rust Bros’ restoration shop – and his first year without his best friend Avery, who’s gone out on a limb to open his own restoration shop, joining the Rust Valley ranks of passionate locals working to make a buck restoring dilapidated classic cars and oddball vehicles of all kinds," the History Channel website states.
