Mecum To Offer Late Rock Star J. Geils Collection Of Italian Exotics  • Eight Vehicles from Legendary Rocker at the Daytime Auction in Monterey, Aug. 16-19

WALWORTH, Wis. – Aug. 10, 2017 – 'My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold …' If the '80s pop-rock hit 'Centerfold' from the J. Geils Band isn't instantly stuck in your head after reading those lyrics, it would be shocking. Hits pumped out by the J. Geils Band proliferated the memorable decade that was the wild and flamboyant 1980s, including others like 'Freeze-Frame,' 'Love Stinks' and '(Ain't Nothin' But A) House Party.' Lead-guitarist and band namesake John 'J.' Geils was passionate about more than music, however, and with his passing in April of this year, his treasured collection of Italian exotic cars and motorcycles is now in search of new caretakers. This Aug. 16-19, these vehicleswill find their new homes when they are auctioned off to the highest bidders at the 2017 Mecum Daytime Auction in Monterey, California.

All set to cross the auction block on Saturday, Aug. 19, without reserves, the collection includes five iconic cars and three stunning motorcycles. The headlining vehicle of the assemblage is Geils' gorgeous 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 (Lot S44), which boasts an attractive blue and gray exterior color combination and the original 3.0-liter V-12 engine with 5-speed transmission. Also in the lineup are a 1967 Lancia Flaminia 2.8 3C (Lot S45) and a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder (Lot S46), to name a few. For the fans of exotic beauty equipped with just two wheels, Geils' collection includes a 1983 Benelli 900 SEI (Lot S49), a 1976 MV Agusta 125 SS (Lot S50) and a 1970 Ducati 350 Desmo (Lot S51). Also on offer will be five of Geils' personal racing suits (Lot S52).

Whether you're an avid listener of '70s and '80s iconic rock music or a devotee of the fine automotive art that has come from some of the most respected Italian automakers, this collection knocks it out of the park.
