Sales kick off Thursday, October 25th and runs through Saturday, October 27th at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois. Velocity will provide 12 hours of live auction coverage from the event.

Here’s how the 104 Corvette consignments sort out by generation within the 1,000-vehicle St. Charles docket:
