Stacy Pucket is the Specialist Operations Manager at RM Auctions in Ontario, Canada. As a graduate of the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, she didn’t plan on a career in the classic car hobby. But after a lifetime of attending car shows with her parents, it wasn’t until she purchased a 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 that the car bug bit her. Instead of grad school she went to the acclaimed McPherson College and received a degree in auto restoration. She trained as an apprentice mechanic with Mercedes-Benz at their Classic Center in Fellbach, Germany. From there she spent time at the LeMay Museum and then five years as a Resource and Research Manager at the acclaimed Paul Russell and Company. There she worked on many different prestigious vehicle restorations including the 1928 Mercedes-Benz 680S Sautchik Torpedo that became the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show winner. Stacy has also been a judge at the Greenwich, Barrington, Misselwood and Radnor Hunt concours. Now at RM Auctions Stacy gets to play with some of the finest motorcars in the world.
