CARLISLE, PA – Carlisle Auctions returns for its Fall Carlisle Collector Car Auction, September 30-October 1 at the Carlisle Expo Center. Powered by THREE great ways to bid, it’s never been easier to buy, sell, and bring the automotive world the fun that is a Carlisle auction.

Starting 12 p.m. daily, the auction brings together decades of automotive opulence. Current lots span from the early 1920’s through modern era with at least one ride from the 2000’s available. Cars, trucks, street rods, best of show gems, and daily drivers are all available to the highest bidder each day. The expert team with Carlisle Auctions WILL yield results, as the collector car market, much like the real estate market, has never been hotter. Cars in the auction don’t just come from a dealer looking to move inventory, they come from the average Jane or Joe who enjoys a classic but wants to move on from their current ride in favor of something “new.”

Carlisle Auctions is still actively taking consignments too, meaning that something “new” is coming to America’s Automotive Hometown daily. One of the featured attractions of the auction is the growingly popular all-truck hour. This time around, it’s taking place on Thursday, September 30 at 4 p.m. As part of this hour, a charitable venture will happen, as a 1952 Ford F3 truck will cross the block. Buyer’s and seller’s fees are waived and proceeds directly benefit the Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue and Pups for Vets. This truck is just one of more than a dozen that will cross the block during that hour and one of dozens that are available overall.

ALL NEW for the Fall Carlisle Auction is a more popular and industry supported way to bid online. Carlisle Auctions is teaming with Proxibid (content/live interface coming soon) to offer online bidding, literally to the world. By way of the Proxibid web page, interested buyers can not only bid from anywhere online, but can watch a live stream in real time of the auction. The stream will also be posted on the Carlisle Auctions web page daily.

The Fall auction also runs in conjunction with Fall Carlisle presented by eBay Motors (September 29-October 3) at the neighboring Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. Registration as a buyer or seller offers reciprocating access to Fall Carlisle. Here, even more cars are for sale, in the car corral, as well as millions of automotive pieces, parts, merchandise, and collectibles within the automotive flea market and midway. Speaking of auctions, on Friday, October 1 at 10 a.m., Carlisle Events co-owner Bill Miller will host an auction of his own items, amassed from years of collecting. This auction happens at the fairgrounds stage. In addition, Bill is putting a 1985 Plymouth Horizon from his own personal collection in the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Auction too. The car will cross the block at approximately 4 p.m. on October 1. A gallery of items from the Bill Miller Collection, plus details on the Miller auction and Fall Carlisle itself are available at CarlisleEvents.com.
