Rob Myers, founder of RM auctions, recently announced that a subsidiary of his company, Auctions America by RM had purchased the 235 acre Auburn Auction Park, previously owned by Kruse Inc. Kruse has experienced financial difficulty in recent months and had it’s auction licenses suspended in its home state of Indiana. The purchase of the auction park divests Kruse of any interest in the park, but Auctions America by RM has stated that it will put on an auction alongside the Auburn-Cord-Dusenberg festival, which has been a staple of the park for 40 years.
The purchase is also significant, because the 1974 running of the A-C-D festival represented the very first time that Myers himself attended a collector car auction. “All of us within the RM group of companies are very excited to take on these new opportunities and we look forward to upgrading the auction park and continuing to serve our clients,” he stated.
