The 32nd Spring Daytona Turkey Run at International Speedway was good for Jim Burke.

Burke sold his 1958 Ford Fairlane Skyliner, a retractable hardtop convertible, on Sunday, the last day of the annual three-day spring auto show.

“I have a buyer and we are close to closing the sale,” Burke, of Viera, said as onlookers gathered to watch the car with the top up. “I was asking $54,900 for it.”

Selling and exhibiting classic cars is part of the Turkey Run, said Zac Celesti, the event’s marketing and public relations manager.

“At Turkey Run, we have the car corral where people can bring their cars and put them up for sale, and make a deal with any of the spectators who come to see them,” Celesti said.
