If you've never been to the Auburn auction, you need to go. Go into Auburn and visit the Auborn, Cord, Dussy Museum too.

My dad and I went a couple of years back. They had one of everything for sale, and two of most. The car corral has as many cars as the auction itself. After a while you just get numb there are so many cars there.

How many places can you go and buy a 427 Thunderbolt Fairlane, a '65 Shelby, a Boss 302 in about every color made, and a rusted up early frame complete with "K" data plate in one big field? Plus, there are so many cars you can get an idea for where the market is on each one. We rented a golfcart, because my dad just can't walk that far anymore, but I was glad to have it too. It's huge.

Is that a Krause action??? If so it is worth the price of admission! They don't have cars like that at museums!

And you get stories too at no extra charge! "I could have bought a(n) 'your favorite car here' for 'a really unbelievabley low price'. Darn I wish I had the money on me!" or this one.. "I would have gotten it but I just had no way to get it home!"

My wife and I went last year. I was especially impressed with a 67 GT 350 that was bought out with the regular people cars, then transferred into one of the tents. They had a sign on it like they owned it for years! Plus, someone suggested they bought it at about 17.5, well it had a $29000 price tag now. Like anything else, buyer beware.
Didn't see a single deal I could live with but the Auburn parade was cool as was the Museum.
