Attention Rush fans: Neil Peart’s car classic sports car collection is going up for sale

While he was with us, Rush drummer Neil Peart was best known as a motorcyclist, often riding his bike between gigs while Rush was on tour and then heading out on the road to clear his head at various times during his life. But Neil was also very much into cars–and he had quite a collection

Gooding and Company, a Pebble Beach, California, auction house, has been entrusted with selling off Neil’s cars, a collection he called his “Silver Surfers.” And before you ask, there is no red Barchetta for sale.

This picture shows a 1964 E-Type Jaguar (estimated price: US$160,000), a 1970 Lamborghini Muira (could go for up to US$1.5 million), a 1963 Corvette with a split back window (US$180,000), a 1973 Maserati Ghibli (US$300,000), a 1965 Maserati Mistral Spider (US$650,000), a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 (US$725,000), and a 1964 Shelby Cobra (maybe US$1 million). Nice taste, dude. Details here.

The auction takes place on August 13 and 14.

  • I’m a huge Rush fan and drummer for almost 50 years. I knew Neil had a great car collection and figured it would be just a matter of time before his cars would go up for sale. I’ll take the 63’ split window Vette since I love Corvettes and was born in 1963. Now I just have to go rob a bank to pay for it!

  • I’ve been on the lookout for something similar, and I’m eager to learn more.
