Atlantic City Car Auction 2015
If you’re an automobile enthusiast, you’d better make plans to take a road trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey, this February, because you don’t dare miss the 40th annual Atlantic City Classic Car Auction. This auction and car show has been drawing car fanatics from across the country ever since it began in 1973. It is the biggest classic car show and auction on the entire East Coast, and if you plan ahead by booking yourself into one of the affordable Atlantic City vacation rentals and finding a low-cost airfare, you’ll be one step ahead of every other collector who wants to challenge you for the ride of your dreams.
2015 Auction DetailsThe auction is held at the Atlantic City Convention Center on a weekend in late February each year. General admission, to attend and watch, is generally under $20, and it is well worth the price. Over 60,000 fans and collectors are expected to make the pilgrimage to New Jersey this winter to ogle, admire and both buy and sell some of the finest cars ever made. Or you may be interested in selling your vehicle on site, and/or bidding on someone else’s. Over 1,000 of these beautiful machines will be presented for sale that weekend. The world’s biggest entertainment wholesaler, Piece of the Past, Inc., will also be on hand with genuine historical and entertainment memorabilia.

Past Auto ShowsEach year offers a different combination of spectacular auction entries over which to vie. Up for sale in 2010 were a 1958 Impala, a 1948 Bentley Mark VI, a 1946 “woody” Mercury station wagon, a 1966 Corvette convertible and a 1936 Ford Phaeton. Bidding for a 1968 Pontiac GTO Ram Air II got heated, and the car ultimately sold for a whopping $400,000. A 1931 Pierce Arrow convertible coupe also drew considerable notice.
The 2011 Atlantic City Classic Car Auction was special in a different way. Several cars from the HBO series Boardwalk Empire were on view, and visitors could even bid on one of them. The auto show featured the black and blue 1920 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost that Boardwalk Empire’s gangster character Nucky Thompson rides in. Collectors were even invited to bid on the antique Westcott that was featured in Boardwalk Empire’s first episode.
Visiting Atlantic CityThe Atlantic City Classic Car Auction (to be held February March 1 - 2, 2013) isn’t the only attraction in Atlantic City, which is known up and down the Eastern Seaboard as an entertainment mecca, the Las Vegas of the East Coast. The city is filled with casinos where you can play blackjack, craps, poker and other exciting games of chance.
Fine dining and shopping malls can be found all over Atlantic City. Of course, there is also the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk isn’t just the most expensive piece of real estate in the game of Monopoly (which is based on Atlantic City), it’s also a popular destination in its own right. It runs along four miles of beautiful beach (nice to look at, even in February), and is lined with casinos, restaurants, piers, and retail outlets.
