SARATOGA SPRINGS — According to the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau, a first-ever classic car auction will take place on September 22 and 23.
The Saratoga Auto Auction, presented by the Saratoga Automobile Museum, will put up for bid 200 unique and vintage autos, classic boats and motorcycles, all scheduled to be auctioned from the stage at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) as well as online via Proxibid and by phone.
Celebrated auctioneer Brent Earlywine will preside. With its inaugural September event, the Saratoga Auto Auction will be the first of many to follow.
This is not only an auction, however. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the museum’s educational programming, including training regional high school students on the dangers of distracted driving.
Auto enthusiasts from all over the country enjoy the family-friendly museum, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit located in a stunning building within the Saratoga Spa State Park which formerly housed the Saratoga Bottling Plant.
A special guest, the Discovery Channel’s Paul Teutul, Jr., will be on hand both days to sign autographs alongside a display of his rare, custom bikes. Spectators, consignors and bidders will also enjoy a full auto event complete with food and beverage offerings, and new car manufacturer displays including Porsche, Ferrari, Tesla, Infinity, Maserati and Alfa Romeo.
Spectators, consignors, registered bidders and the media will be welcomed with an early preview on Thursday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The main auction times are set for Friday, September 22, from 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
