AUBURN, Ind. (WANE) - Gear up, and let the bidding begin.
The third annual Auburn Fall Auction is this weekend. The event goes from August 30th- September 2nd. Thousands of people came from all over the United States to see the more than 2,000 cars that were up for sale. 1,100 of those cars were auctioned off while another 1,000 were available for private sale.
Auction goers had the chance to see some vintage cars, meet Barry Weiss from A&E's Storage Wars, and even take helicopter rides around the entire auction area.
The cars auctioned are consigned, and the highest bidder has a new gift to take home at the end of the weekend.
"We happen to have a few Shelby cars for sale, and we just enjoy doing it, and the camaraderie of meeting other people and other bidders and buyers, and we always come with the intention of 'no, we're not going to buy anything,' well, we're already a day into it, and we've bought two vehicles and a boat," said George Munsterman, Auburn Auction buyer and bidder.
The money raised will go to helping improve the surrounding community. On Sunday, Barry Weiss will be leading an auction where proceeds will benefit wounded military men and women.
The auction ends Sunday at 7 P.M.
