An Extraordinary Life and Collection Mike Drury Collection

Mike Drury was born to race as a kid he started with go-carts, then graduated from one sport to another, dominating each along the way. Motorcycling, water-skiing, drag-racing, offshore boat racing, hang gliding… high speeds and adrenaline has been Mike’s passion. He has traveled the world in pursuit of faster finish times and top-podium spots. Mike served our country with the 101st Airborne Division of the US Army. After two tours in Vietnam, he resumed a busy life back home racing and running successful businesses. Some of Mr. Drury’s accomplishments include setting the world speed record in offshore powerboat racing, setting another world speed record for Mercury Marine with a boat that he custom built, winning the national championship for hang gliders, racing for Suzuki Motorcycles, racing for Oldsmobile and more. Mike’s entire car collection is special, but the 1969 White and Gold Hurst Oldsmobile is the car that stands out the most to him. He drag-raced it in Indianapolis and placed second in the Nationals against Jerry Dover, against whom he raced many times. After an unfortunate accident that left Mike unable to drive and care for his collection of cars in the way that they deserve, Mike is selling his collection. It is his intention to see that the cars go to new owners who will enjoy them for years to come.

Henderson Auctions is proud to represent Mr. Drury as his auctioneer. We are proud to call him our client. We are honored to call him our friend.
