The annual Auburn Heights Invitational features an exceptional array of historic automobiles from the classic era. The 2014 event included a spotlight display on electric vehicles (touted in the 1900s as “A Car of Refinement”), alongside a broad representation of high-end motor cars from the dawn of the automotive age through 1942. Selection was based on significance of the marque, authenticity, presentation and the history of the vehicle. Limited to approximately 25 autos, the Auburn Heights Invitational offers a rare opportunity to compare and contrast early and later classic-era vehicles — all at the elegant Auburn Heights estate.
