This just in…Severe rain and wind in Scottsdale caused two tents at the Russo and Steele auction to collapse. Most importantly, it seems there were no injuries. The force of the wind tossing the tent material and supports have caused significant damage to cars, but the extent is not fully known.

It is noted in the news coverage that R+S head Drew Alcazar immediately put the safety of attendees and workers first. A leader in the industry…we’ve found Drew to be a true class-act and a straight shooter. Those consigning cars at the show should feel confident that R+S will make everything whole. We’re guessing that as soon as Drew could confirm the safety of everyone, he was hard at work making sure every last customer — be it seller or potential bidder would come away feeling like R+S went above and beyond.
