Worldwide Auctioneers returned to Auburn for its fifth consecutive fall sale. This time around the event was held at the National Auto and Truck Museum, and $345,000 was raised for the museum on the sale of three vehicles alone. The new setup placed the cars in the midst of auction-goers instead of running all of the lots across the block, which was a nice contrast to the less-than-intimate, two-stage approach employed by Auctions America in Auburn. The sale itself was scaled back to two days following 2011’s three-day, 500-car event. As a result, sales totals were predictably lower, but were still ahead of 2010’s numbers by half a million dollars. Overall, Worldwide sold 70% of their more than 125 vehicles for a total of $5.1M.
