Classic Car Auction Thrives

Auctions AmericaAuctions America has restored Auburn, Ind., to its position as the ‘Classic Car Capital of America,' posting the company's strongest sale results to date along with record attendance at its annual Auburn Fall Collector Car Weekend, Aug. 28 - Sept. 1.

Sales topped $28 million, with 80 percent of all lots sold.

Held during the famous Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, this year's sale attracted more than 70,000 enthusiasts to the historic Auburn Auction Park, surpassing last year's attendance by nearly 40 percent. New this year, NBC Sports Network broadcast from the event for three days, delivering coverage of the sale to more than 80 million homes across the U.S.
