Motors are revving up in Auburn for this year's Auburn Fall Auto Auction.

Officials say they're expecting an injection of over a hundred thousand people into the region.

People come from all over the world to check out some of these classic autos.

But you don't have to find a car from around the world.

You can find a great one that comes from right here.

"It's one of the most iconic muscle cars you can think of,” says Auctions America Auction manager Keith Koscak.

Check out this 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

A rare find- branded as a "Road Runner."

It's local, and at this weekend's Auburn Fall Auto Auction, it could be yours.

"The cool thing about this car is that it was originally delivered to Huntington, Indiana, not too far from auburn here. And the original owner still owns the car. And he's trusted us to sell it within this weekend,” Koscak says.

And it could go for a pretty penny.

"I would think it should go between a hundred twenty five to a hundred fifty thousand (dollars)," Koscak says.

It's one of the over twelve hundred classic and collector cars available at this year's auction.

This year, sponsor Auction America has upped the ante.

"To honor the hundred-year Duesenbergs that are actually being offered up for auction this year. They're all expected to bring right around a million dollars, a little bit over,” Koscak says.

That road runner is on the block Saturday at noon.

The auction is open through Sunday starting at nine in the morning.

And hey, if you can't make it out this weekend- don't worry, some of it will be broadcast on the NBC Sports channel.

Check your listings for that.

Something new this year- you can even make bids on some of these cars online.
