May, 2016 -- Back home again in Indiana… from May 5-7, where Auctions America held one of its two Auburn auctions at their complex in Auburn, Indiana. Close to 500 American classics, muscle cars, exotic sports cars, hot rods and motorcycles were auctioned over the three-day event.
Wayne Carini, of “Chasing Classic Cars,” offered a selection of six cars from his personal collection, and was onsite Friday and Saturday, filming segments of his show and signing autographs. Highlights from his collection were a CCCA Full Classic 1933 Pierce-Arrow Model 836 Sedan and a 1966 Dodge Monaco Two-Door Hardtop. All proceeds from the sale of the Monaco were donated to charity. Also, vehicles from The Smoky Mountain Museum, The Driscoll, and the Russell Cameron Collections were on Auctions Americas’ roster.
Other highlights of the weekend were a two-owner 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, with less than 17,000 miles; a 1966 Shelby GT350, which was signed by Carroll Shelby; and a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air II Hardtop Coupe, restored to concours condition. Proceeds from the sale of a 2006 Ford Shelby Terlingua Mustang Coupe Tribute went to Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.
In addition to all of the auction excitement, Auburn Spring also played host to a car corral and swap meet, along with the Antique Automobile Club of America’s (AACA) Special National Spring Meet, which brought an additional 300 cars to the grounds of the Auburn Auction Park.
