INDIANAPOLIS – Mecum Auctions is back at the Indiana State Fair Grounds for Dana Mecum’s 35th Original Spring Classic.

The collector car auction is underway now through May 21 with nearly 3,000 cars that will be up for auction at the annual event.

Mecum Auctions CEO Dave Magers says this year’s auction could be their biggest yet.

“This, with very little doubt, is going to be the biggest and the best Spring Classic that we’ve had in our 35 year history.”

Magers says this will be the most cars they’ve ever had at the event with nearly 3,000, compared to the estimated 2,000 cars they had last year.

“When you have more cars, that usually means better quality of cars. And, when you have more cars and better quality you get bigger crowds. Ultimately that turns into sales dollars and that’s how we measure the success of an auction.”

Magers says they’ll run about 350 cars a day through the auction block.

The Dana Mecum Original Spring Classic runs through May 21 and is open to buyers, sellers, and anyone interested in cars. Doors open each morning at 8 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at the fairgrounds and online.
