MACKEYVILLE - It will once again be "the best of the best" for auto collectors and dealers at the 11th Annual Classic and Antique Car and Truck Extravaganza, hosted by Central Pennsylvania Auto Auction owner C. Grant Miller this weekend.
Hundreds of people are expected at the auction this weekend, and some of the lucky ones will go home with their own personal treasure - the title to the classic car of their dreams.
This exciting event evolved out of Miller's personal hobby of collecting classic cars, purchasing and selling thousands of them through the years, as he first entered the car business in 1959. The auto auction is celebrating its 25 anniversary this year.
While the auction of 350 vehicles will start tomorrow morning, activities actually kick off this evening with a reception at Miller's house for consignors, buyers and guests with hors d'oeuvres, libations and live entertainment from The Impact Band.
The first 175 vehicles go on the auction block from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow, with a gala celebration for all at Miller's house from 7 p.m. to midnight with food, drinks and entertainment once again from The Impact Band.
The remaining 175 vehicles go up on the auction block then Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Of the 350 vehicles, 50 will come from Miller's personal collection.
Some of those vehicles include a 1953 MG TD Roadster, a 1936 Packard Standard 8 Touring with an estimated value of between $160,000 to $180,000, a 1956 Chevrolet Belair four-door sedan, a 1956 Ford Thunderbird, a 1966 Plymouth Baracuda two-door hardtop and a 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder convertible.
