“Auburn has long been the bedrock of the collector car community,” said Auburn Mayor, Norm Yoder. “Over the years some of the most important cars ever built were bought and sold here, by people who made the journey to the Auburn Automobile Company in the 1920s and ‘30s and in later years, to auction. The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum and the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States (NATMUS), housed in the original Auburn Automobile Company headquarters and factory buildings and the celebrated Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, for decades attracting visitors from across the U.S. and overseas, bear testament to this town’s unique heritage. We are all passionate about building upon this inheritance and ensuring that Labor Day Weekend in Auburn is the undisputed destination of choice for automobile enthusiasts, this year and far into the future.”
