AUBURN, IN.- As its highly anticipated annual Auburn Spring sale draws closer, Auctions America announced an exciting list of additional attractions for the multi-day event.

In addition to the auction and the previously announced Antique Automobile Club of America Central Division National Spring Meet and Carlisle Events’ car corral and swap meet, the upcoming Auburn Spring weekend will feature a series of attractions for the whole family. Hot rod aficionados will have the opportunity to meet Richard Rawlings, star of Discovery’s hit TV show, Fast N’ Loud and owner of world-renowned hot rod shop Gas Monkey Garage during a special appearance at the Auburn Auction Park. Richard will be onsite May 9 for an autograph session in the main auction arena. The Saturday event program also incorporates extreme entertainment for all ages, including the high-flying, interactive Solution Action Sports BMX demonstration, as well as a Jet-Powered Smart Car demonstration, the latest creation from Wild West Entertainment. Full attraction details are available at auctionsamerica.com.

“This year’s Auburn Spring event offers a complete collector car weekend for motoring enthusiasts,” says Donnie Gould, president, Auctions America. “In addition to a diverse roster of quality collector cars and memorabilia slated for the auction block, the weekend will also incorporate a number of other attractions set to celebrate the automotive hobby. We look forward to welcoming clients new and old back to the Auburn Auction Park for what promises to be another memorable weekend.”

Savvy collectors are also well catered for with more than 500 collector cars expected to cross the auction block during the weekend. Leading a long list of recent highlights confirmed for the sale is an AACA National First Prize winning 1930 Packard Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton, richly presented in black with green leather interior and a black convertible top and fitted with the desirable “Super 8” inline eight-cylinder engine. The sale will also lift the gavel on a striking 1938 Cadillac V-16 Convertible Coupe with Fleetwood coachwork and finished in yellow with a new red leather interior and black canvas top. Equipped with a desirable V-16 engine measuring 431-cid, 185hp, it features twin carburetors and a three-speed column-shift manual transmission along with skirted fenders, streamlined louver trim, a vee’d “egg-crate” grille, covered dual sidemounts with attached mirrors, and abundant and distinctive brightwork; along with a meticulously restored, Candyapple Red 1967 Ford Fairlane 500XL R-Code showing just 2,877 miles from new and featuring an extensive, documented period drag racing history.

Additional recent entries include:

· a freshly-restored 1903 Cadillac boasting excellent performance by the standards of its day and featuring 12-spoke wood wheels fitted with white tires and eye-catching brass components;

· a desirable 1929 Hudson Dual Cowl Phaeton with coachwork by Biddle and Smart, and one of only seven known to exist;

· a handsome 1935 Lincoln Mark K V-12 Series 301 Seven-Passenger Limousine powered by a 150hp, 414-cid V-12 engine with three-speed manual transmission and recognized as a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America; and

· a freshly-restored 1952 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster complete with Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certification

In addition to the automobiles, the Auburn Spring sale will also feature a dedicated single-day of automotive memorabilia on Thursday, May 9, including select pieces from the respected John O’Quinn and Wade Jennings Automotive Artwork collections.
