Thompson Classic Car Collection

On October 14th, the Thompson Classic Car Collection went on the auction block at the Overland Park Convention Center. The collection is the result of Frank Thompson’s life-long passion for collecting classic and rare automobiles. The evening prior, Evangeline and Frank Thompson and many of their friends gathered for a cocktail reception among the cars to pay tribute to the Thompson’s many contributions to their community.
