TULSA, OK -- A popular car auction rolls into Tulsa. It's the 38th year for the Leake Collector Car Show and Auction. 

Not only will you find a wide variety of cars, but the event is also benefiting charity.

More than 700 cars are on the auction block this year and organizers say there's something for everyone, including a few with a celebrity touch.

Vehicles being auctioned this weekend at the QuikTrip Center include one built for Amelia Earhart, and another is one of Richard Petty's Farewell Tour race cars.

Another is signed by Charlie Sheen. 

And two 2010 Chrysler 300 eco style vehicles are being auctioned for charity. One is signed by Colin Firth of Bridget Jones's Diary. The other is signed by Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives and William H. Macy of Fargo. 

With hundreds to choose from, the cars will go for a wide range in price, but if you're looking for something fancy, it'll cost you.

"I think one of the highest ones I saw was $200,000. Last year we sold one for $1 million. So you never know, cars can go for as little as $5,000 and they can go for well over $100,000 to $200,000," said Jennifer Tetley, Leake Auction Company.

Proceeds from the two Chrysler 300 eco style vehicles will go to the charities the celebrities choose.

You can still catch the auction Saturday and Sunday starting at 9 a.m. It will run each day until about 5 p.m.

The cost is $15 for adults and $7 for children younger than 12.
