AUBURN, Ind. -- Organizers of a long-running classic car auction in northeastern Indiana point to improved attendance and sales as signs that they've put behind the financial troubles of its former owner.

Auctions America by RM says big-ticket car sales from the Labor Day weekend event in Auburn include a 1935 Duesenberg Model J selling for $456,500 and a 1932 Auburn boattail speedster at $275,000.

The company says the auction drew nearly 50,000 people to about double from two years ago soon after it took over the former Kruse Auction Park.

Auctions America President Donnie Gould tells The Star of Auburn he believes the sale is heading in the right direction.

Worldwide Auctioneers tells The Journal Gazette it sold a 1934 Auburn 12 salon cabriolet for $473,000 at Auburn's other weekend car sale.
