Auburn Fall: Collector Car Auction & Tradition



Each year, Auctions America gives us an incredible event during Labor Day Weekend: The Auburn Fall Auction. Since 2010, this company has provided attendees, from near and far, with an exciting event that people of every age can enjoy!

So, what makes the Auburn Fall Auction so exciting each year? To begin, this far, they have been able to bring an ACD Trifecta every year. This means, at least one Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg has been up for auction at the Auburn Fall. This year is no different, with one Cord, two Auburns, and two Duesenbergs… the 2016 auction will be one to remember!

Though automobiles are the reason this very event exists, there is so much more to look forward to as well. As said above, the weekend provides fun for every generation! People can anticipate a car corral, swap meet, monster truck shows, and freestyle sport bike shows! For even more thrills, helicopter and monster truck rides are available during the event! More information can be found here!

Newly introduced this year is a Cars & Coffee car meet on Saturday morning! This activity has become quite successful and will be an aspect of the Saturday auction you won’t want to miss! Also, Auctions America is providing a Wine & Microbrew Garden that numerous local vendors will be participating in! Bill Goldberg, a well-known professional wrestler and car enthusiast, will be at the Auction Park on Saturday to sign autographs and enjoy the auction too!

Being that younger generations will be in attendance, Auctions America even has some exciting activities for kids! This year, they will be providing a “scavenger hunt” for children to explore the Historic Auction Park! The National Auto & Truck Museum will be giving all ages a hands-on opportunity to learn more about some incredible historic vehicles!

This year’s Auburn Auction will be featuring many automobiles to be auctioned off! Besides the renowned Cord, Auburns, and Duesenbergs, more incredible cars will be crossing the block! This includes two Shelby Cobras (here and here), the Triple Crown Collection which is composed of more than 40 vehicles, mainly American made classics! There is also a “Batcycle” up for auction that was used in one of the famous Batman movies and much more! Probably the most unique item to cross the block stands on four legs…Wendell the Mechanical Elephant! A portion of the sale of Wendell will be going to Kate’s Kart, a local non-for-profit that provides free books to children in hospitals. On Friday, September 2nd, Auctions America will be offering a special Buy One, Get One Free on admission with the donation of a new children’s book for Kate’s Kart!
