12:30 to 4:30 pm

Thank you to everyone who joined us and made the 4th Annual Auburn Heights Invitational a great success! We hope you will mark your calendar for next year’s grand day — on Sunday, September 25, 2016!

The annual Auburn Heights Invitational features an exceptional array of historic automobiles from the classic era. This year’s fundraiser event includes a spotlight display on limos and landaulets, alongside a broad representation of high-end motor cars from the dawn of the automotive age through 1942. Selection is based on significance of the marque, authenticity, presentation and the history of the vehicle. Limited to approximately 20-25 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.
