The heirs of industrial designer, artist, and sculptor Viktor Schreckengost (1906-2008) have dropped the idea of creating a new museum to house his legacy in Cleveland and have decided instead to auction key pieces and to donate others to the Western Reserve Historical Society.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions will hold a May 13 auction for at least 28 lots that will include a pair of iconic Schreckengost 1941 "Pursuit Plane" pedal cars, and a 1931 portrait bust of an African tribal woman, "Jeddu."
