SARATOGA AUTO AUCTION ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF THE NO-RESERVE DAMMERMAN COLLECTION FOR THE 2018 AUCTION
Forty-four vehicles, all offered at no reserve, consigned from the exclusive collection of the late former Vice Chairman of General Electric, Dennis Dammerman

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (Aug. 13, 2018) – The Saratoga Automobile Museum has announced the addition and consignment of all 44 vehicles at no reserve from the collection of Dennis Dammerman, the late Vice Chairman of General Electric. The auction will once again take place at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on Sept. 21 and 22.

The collection, comprised largely of a variety of mid-century domestic convertibles, coupes, and sports cars, is the largest single consignment in the auction’s history. All vehicles will be offered at no reserve.

“The Saratoga Automobile Museum is thrilled and privileged to have the opportunity to feature the Dammerman Collection at this year’s Saratoga Auto Auction,” said Gary Brown, treasurer of the board of trustees for the Saratoga Automobile Museum. “I, along with the board of trustees and the staff at the Museum, could not thank Marsha Finn Dammerman enough for consigning this incredible collection of motor vehicles for the auction. Mrs. Dammerman’s generosity and support of the auction will help fulfill the Museum’s mission for years to come.”

"We are incredibly honored and excited to have the Dammerman Collection featured in our Fall 2018 auction. We are fortunate to have earned the confidence of Mrs. Dammerman to promote and sell the collection on the stage at SPAC this September. This has taken our auction to the next level with the offering of all 44 cars of the Dammerman Collection being offered at no reserve,” said Jeff Whiteside, auction director.

An Iowa native raised in Grand Mound, Dammerman - who passed away at the age of 67 in 2013 – was the late vice chairman of General Electric. Mr. Dammerman was 38 when Jack Welch named him GE’s chief financial officer in 1984, the youngest CFO in company history. He held the position until 1998, when he became a Vice Chairman and Executive Officer of GE and Chairman of GE Capital Services, Inc. The same year, CFO Magazine honored Dammerman with its first Life Achievement Award for CFO Excellence.

Dammerman joined GE in 1967, shortly after graduating from the University of Dubuque in his native Iowa. He joined GE’s financial management program and held various financial assignments in several GE businesses. He was appointed to lead GE Capital’s real estate financial services division in 1981, a job he held until Welch named him Senior Vice President-Finance and CFO.

Dammerman was not only a car collector and enthusiast, but a trustee, supporter, and advocate for the museum. In 2009, Dammerman displayed 16 of his vehicles in an exhibit entitled, “Mid Century Marvels.” Now with this generous consignment, the Dammerman Collection sale at the Saratoga Auto Auction will help support the museum’s educational programming, including its Distracted Driving Safety Program.

“The addition of the Dammerman Collection to the auction will undoubtedly help support the museum’s array of educational programming,” said Carly Connors, executive director. “We cannot express enough gratitude toward Mrs. Dammerman for her trust and support of the auction and the Museum.”

Dammerman remained active in business after retiring from GE, serving on the boards of directors of BlackRock, Inc., one of the largest publicly traded investment management firms in the U.S.; Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd.; Capmark Financial Group Inc.; and Discover Financial Services. He also served on the boards of various entities associated with his summer hometown of Saratoga Springs, including the New York Racing Association, Skidmore College, and Adirondack Trust.

In addition to his service on numerous boards, Dammerman spent his retirement years indulging his passion for horses and automobiles, both classic and contemporary. Following his retirement, he and his wife, Marsha, made their primary home in Wellington, Fla., where Dammerman was a founding partner of Wellington Equestrian Partners, which developed the Winter Equestrian Festival into the largest and longest-running event in the sport. He enjoyed watching his wife compete in the Winter Equestrian Festival and throughout the Northeast.

ALBANY COUNTY PARTNERS WITH SARATOGA AUTOMOBILE MUSEUM TO DISPLAY HISTORIC MILITARY VEHICLE ON BEHALF OF FEED OUR VETS AT TIMES UNION CENTER ATRIUM
Customized 1991 HMMWV Humvee, to be auctioned off at second annual Saratoga Auto Auction, will support Feed Our Vets charity

ALBANY, N.Y. (July 30, 2018) – Albany County and the Saratoga Automobile Museum (“SAM”) have announced that a special customized 1991 Humvee will be on display inside the atrium of the Times Union Center in partnership with Feed Our Vets. The Humvee will be auctioned off at the second annual Saratoga Auto Auction, taking place from Sept. 21 and 22 at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center where 100 percent of the proceeds from the Humvee’s sale will go to Feed Our Vets.

“Homelessness and poverty among our veteran population is a growing issue in this country that I have long fought to address,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy.  “Today I am proud to partner with Feed Our Vets and the Saratoga Automobile Museum to raise crucial funding to support those who sacrificed so much to preserve our way of life.”

The customized 1991 military High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle to be auctioned at the Saratoga Auto Auction in September was developed by the military as a replacement for Jeeps previously used in Vietnam. This vehicle was regarded as one of the toughest and most reliable utility vehicles of its time and aided in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Since then, it has been refurbished by nationally recognized restoration specialist Steve Hale (History Channel’s American Restoration).

Using the Humvee as a salute and benefaction to veterans began with an idea from the founder of Feed Our Vets, Rich Synek, when he saw CNN restore a H1 Hummer that has been used in the Iraq was auction at $1.35 million for charity.

“Feed Our Vets is proud and honored to have our totally refurbed FOV 1 military Humvee showcased inside the Times Union Center in Albany. This amazing opportunity made possible by County Executive McCoy will bring attention to the new face of hunger in the United States: The American Veteran,” said Rich Synek, founder, Feed Our Vets.

“We’re excited to partner with Albany County Executive Dan McCoy to promote the auction in support of our veterans,” said Carly Connors, executive director, Saratoga Automobile Museum. “We’re proud to support Feed Our Vets for this year’s auction and we appreciate the County Executive’s efforts to help men and women who have served our country.”

"I encourage people to come by the Times Union Center to view this customized 1991 Humvee. The refurbished and customized vehicle is truly remarkable with the proceeds going to the wonderful cause of Feed Our Vets," said Senator Neil D. Breslin.

“The Capital Region is filled with remarkably generous people and local businesses that want to give back to our community, whether it be through food drives, donating winter clothing to school children, charity auctions, and many other initiatives,” said Downtown Albany BID executive director Georgette Steffens. “We are fortunate to have an impressive venue like the newly renovated Times Union Center atrium to showcase the charity Humvee, and with the incredible events they hold that attract thousands of people it will encourage even more auction bids to benefit the honorable Feed Our Vets mission.”

After 1,000 hours of rejuvenating the Humvee, completely cleaned, repainted, and renovated, it is ready to be auctioned this fall. The original engine, a 6.2-liter GM diesel V8 with GM fuel injection has been freshened and is in excellent condition. The transmission is a three-speed automatic and features an independent four-wheel drive accompanied by a rebuilt suspension. With four doors and a wide wheelbase, there is a good amount of room in the interior, which has been redone as well.

The 1991 HMMWV Humvee is sparking with its off green and black paint theme and is sporting its new paint job courtesy of Crystallance paints which includes crushed glass in the mixture to provide an extra sparkle. Additionally, the vehicle has 13 stars painted on its hood, along with saluting soldiers and the Feed Our Vets logo on the truck sides.

The Humvee will be displayed at the atrium throughout the month of August and early September before returning to Saratoga Springs ahead of the auction.
