It’s “Peart, Neil Peart.”

Rush drummer-lyricist Neil Peart’s personal car collection, which includes a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 made famous as driven by Sean Connery in the first James Bond film, Goldfinger, will be auctioned off at Pebble Beach in August.

The formidable collection of seven vehicles, which Peart dubbed the “Silver Surfers,” and also includes a Shelby Cobra 289, and a Lamborghini Miura P400 S, will be sold Aug. 13-14 by at Gooding & Company’s 17th annual Pebble Beach Auctions

“Peart’s love of cars was a lifelong passion, and his hunger for knowledge included learning everything there is to know about automobiles, inside and out,” says Gooding & Company in a release.

“Classic cars were what he dreamed of owning for many years, and upon purchasing his first, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5, he exclaimed that he had dreamed of owning this car since he was a boy.”

Peart, who moved from Toronto to L.A. in 2000, said he came up with the name “Silver Surfers” for his collection while driving the DB5 up and down the Pacific.

“It felt right to me, I guess – the idea that I was just one of the wave riders,” wrote Peart.

After bravely battling brain cancer for three and a half years, Peart passed away on Jan. 7, 2020.

“We are beyond honored and humbled to be entrusted with the sale of Mr. Peart’s beloved collection of classic cars,” said Gooding & Company President-Founder, David Gooding in a statement.

“Neil Peart touched the lives of so many through his groundbreaking career in music, including my own, and we are confident that his personal curation of classic cars will resonate with passionate collectors, finding them new homes with the same appreciation for them as the icon himself held.”

The estimated costs of the cars range at the low end from $140,000-$160,000 for the 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8-Litre Coupe to $1,200,000-$1,500,000 at the high end for the 1970 Lamborghini Miura P400 S.
