John Shearer: Attending The Howard Baker Car Auction


Saturday, March 14, 2015 - by John Shearer

Saturday morning at the Howard Baker Center by the University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville, several dozen people were gathered in one room coming to agreements in a manner that the late U.S. senator would have admired.

But this group was talking cars, not politics.

As part of the settling of the late Senator Bakerís estate, the Furrow Auction Co. was auctioning off six vintage automobiles collected over the years by the former Senate majority leader and White House chief of staff.

When all the shouting and hand waving were completed in just a little over a half hour, some $285,500 had been raised for the center from the sales.
