NEW YORK CITY — It’s been almost seven years since the last auto auction.
The last time the auction house that once took over the city’s streets was shuttered was in June 2011.
Now, with the end of the year fast approaching, we asked experts to rank the most popular auction houses in New England and the Midwest.
The results were shocking.
We’re guessing you’ve heard of the auction houses that have been around for a decade, but what do the experts say?
“If you’re not a resident of New England or the Midwest, I would strongly recommend not going to the auctions at all,” said Scott Regan, president of the New England Auto Auctioneers Association.
Regan is one of the world’s leading auctioneers of cars and trucks.
“The people who run them have been doing it for over 50 years and have done it well.
They are a fantastic place to come and buy a car or truck.
I think the big sellers are the brands, the models and the brands that have built their reputation.”
The Biggest Bids In New England The Big Four automakers are in a virtual dead heat with the four most popular auctions.
The most popular seller in New Hampshire and Vermont is Ford, which has sold over 1.2 million vehicles in the last seven years.
The only other vehicle to make the list is the Lincoln Navigator, which sold 2,921 cars in 2016.
The best seller in the Northeast is the Cadillac ATS, which had a top spot in New Jersey with more than 2.2 percent of the market.
The top seller in Massachusetts is the Nissan Altima, which sells nearly 1.8 million vehicles each year in the state.
The second best seller is the Chevrolet Camaro, which made the list in Maine with a share of almost 1 percent of its sales.
In Connecticut, Cadillac’s Buick LeSabre, Nissan’s CX-7 and Mercedes-Benz’s CLS have all been sold, with about 1 percent each.
“These big automakers are all selling well,” said Regan.
“They are not only the big brands, they are the biggest sellers.”
