'A high-energy crowd and eager bidders participated in our flagship Original Spring Classic Auction, which had a final sell-through rate of 66%,' said President Dana Mecum. 'As our largest annual event, we strive to give enthusiasts a wide variety of vehicles to see, enjoy and purchase. The buildings at the Indiana State Fairgrounds were packed wall to wall with everything from rare pace cars, exotic Mercedes-Benz and Model Ts to wooden boats, tractors and neon signs. There truly was something for every taste and budget.'
