Mecum Auctions – the largest collector car auction company in the world – will introduce a new auction to its already vast 2014 lineup extending its reach further into the East Coast. With 12 classic and collector car auctions and four vintage tractor auctions on the 2014 docket, Mecum will take the action to Harrisburg, Penn., in July for three days with an expected 1,000 cars crossing the auction block.
Set for July 24-26, this new auction will be held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center which encompasses nearly one million square feet of indoor floor space and is one of the premier event locations in Pennsylvania.
“People have been asking for years when we would host an auction on the East Coast,” commented Dana Mecum, president and founder of Mecum Auctions. “We’re excited to reach a great community of classic and collector car fans that have long been there. This new location is truly a mecca for many collector car enthusiasts and we look forward to becoming a staple in the impressive lineup of car events already held in the area.”
“We see the Mecum Auction as the final crowned jewel, completing a royal list of annual events now hosted in our region for automobile enthusiasts," said Mary Smith, President of the Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau. “Collectors and connoisseurs know and love the Hershey Harrisburg Region for such world-class car events as The AACA Eastern Regional Fall Meet, held in Hershey since 1955 and now considered one of the largest antique automobile shows and flea markets in the U.S.; and most recently for The Elegance at Hershey, a charity event at The Hotel Hershey featuring a Concours d’Elegance and vintage racing."
Mecum’s newest addition and the Hershey Harrisburg area’s crowned jewel event will open for consignments in February of 2014.
