HERSHEY, Pennsylvania - In what can only be described as an historic event, two of the world’s oldest and grandest car clubs, The Antique Automobile Club of America and the Classic Car Club of America, will join together this Spring to host a combined national meet. Scheduled May 11-13 in the Classic Car Capital of America, Auburn, Indiana, the ‘Triple Crown’ Meet will coincide with Auctions America’s Auburn Spring weekend at the Auburn Auction Park.
The event represents the first time in the history of both clubs that the two organizations have worked in tandem to host a joint Meet. At the May event, AACA members and CCCA members who own full classic automobiles will be able to have their cars judged the same day and vie for their club’s special awards. This massive cooperative effort could not have happened without the outstanding enlightened cooperation of each club.
“We hope to have as many as 100 classic cars for our members and guests to drool over during the weekend,” states William “Tom” Cox, 2017 AACA National President. “To be able to join together with our brothers and sisters in CCCA will be special for all of us. This is going to be a great weekend for the collector car hobby,”
As part of the weekend’s program, members will have opportunity to visit four local automobile museums in the Auburn area, as well have the chance to buy one more piece of memorabilia or even another car if so inclined at Auctions America’s Auburn Spring event. On Friday there will be judging schools and seminars, followed by a free evening concert for club members and VIP guests. Saturday will see the car show and judging, culminating with a Midwest barbeque awards presentation.
CCCA President Jones puts it succinctly, “We are all about history. We collect history. We drive history. At the Auburn AACA/CCCA event, we will make history.”
Both clubs extend thanks to Donnie Gould, Ed Cepuran and the Auctions America staff for the gracious hospitality.
Steve Moskowitz, Executive Director of AACA adds, “The facilities at the Auburn Auction Park are great, the people friendly, the food filling and the auction exciting. What a great way to start the summer show season!”
A Spring tradition for collectors and enthusiasts across the country, Auctions America’s Auburn Spring event is the first of the company’s two annual Auburn sales. In addition to playing host to this year’s ‘Triple Crown’ meet, the weekend will also feature a 500-car auction, as well as an onsite swap meet and car corral.
