If you’re a car love looking for a vintage ride, the four-day Mecum Auction Show at the Pennsylvania Farm show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg is the place to be.

The auction kicked-off on Thursday. Mecum Auctions is the world leader in collector car and vintage motorcycle sales in the United States. This is the first time the company has hosted a show on the East Coast.

“We’ve spent a lot of time studying the northeast. The northeast is a hotbed for the collector car industry, and we finally settled on Harrisburg. We thought that Harrisburg is the place for collector cars. We picked the right spot because they’re here, and they’re not just here from Pennsylvania, they’re here from all over the northeast,” Mecum Auctions CEO Dave Magers said.

AN estimated 1,000 collector cars and 200 vintage motorcycles will be auctioned off during the event.
