Crowds Pack New England Auto Auction 

The prices ranged from a few hundred dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars – it was the 32nd Annual New England Auto Auction today in Owls Head. Nearly 200 cars were up for auction, including lots of classic and special interest vehicles.The bidding went for several hours, on everything from a 1911 Buick Roadster to a 2006 Maserati.Folks at the Owls Head Transportation Museum say the turnout today was tremendous, with crowds spilling out of the tents they had set up. And we’re told all those cars come from all over.”I would say a good 80-percent are consignments, some cars, some of the Model A’s that we’ve been putting up just now, have been donated. All proceeds benefit the museum and that’s a great way for us to raise money,” says Park Morrison.Morrison says hundreds of volunteers also turn out to help run the event.This is the museum’s largest fundraiser. Last year, it brought in more than 200 thousand dollars.
