Auburn, IN – July 28, 2010 — The Auctions America by RM team has been enjoying an extremely busy month since the entity’s formation was first announced on July 1 with the purchase of the 235-acre Auburn Auction Park and its intent to hold a sale of up to 1,500 collector cars at the facility over the Labor Day weekend.

Backed by the world’s leading classic car auction house, the excitement and good will for Auctions America by RM and its inaugural Auburn Fall Collector Car Auction weekend has been overwhelming. Quality consignments are being booked on a daily basis with Auctions America well on the way to filling its Labor Day weekend’s roster of automobiles, with an emphasis on American classics, Detroit muscle, customs and hot rods. The diverse lineup of 475 motor cars already consigned spans from a classic 1932 Ford Five-Window Coupe to a like-new 2008 Ferrari F430.

“Based on the impressive volume of enthusiastic inquiries we regularly receive, we anticipate Auctions America’s upcoming Labor Day sale will be a huge success with clients secure in the knowledge that the auction will be conducted in a highly professional manner,” said Ed Cepuran, Chief Financial Officer, Auctions America by RM.

Jim grew up in a small neighborhood of car guys, so the bug bit him early, and rides in his neighbor’s over-powered street rods sealed the deal for good. His first car was a ’66 Caprice with a big-block Chevy—a car which landed him his first job as a mechanic after high school and through college, got him into drag racing, and much to the distress of his wife Kristina, caused his recent home search to take a full year—the Caprice is 19 feet long and gets parked inside. In addition to the Caprice, also maintains a 1972 Chevrolet K10 4x4 and a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.
