A motor auction held in Houston, Texas, earlier this month contained more than a few classic cars for sale, alongside plenty of more modern autos to tempt buyers from a range of backgrounds.
A total of more than 7,500 cars went under the hammer at the event, hosted by Mecum Auctions, which returned for a second year after the success of the first back in 2012.
There were a third more cars on offer at the 2013 auction, including a variety of classic and exotic autos from across the world.
Buyers were able to bid on everything from a BMW Alpina to 25 specially selected vehicles plucked from the Gerald Byrd Collection, including a 1930 Studebaker Dictator.
There were even muscle cars and custom hot rods on offer, so all tastes were catered for by this auction.
Auctioneer, Sam Murtaguh, said that collectors came from far and wide to visit the auction, in some cases crossing the country to secure the classic car of their dreams.
For those with more modern tastes, or an eye on future classics, there were exotic supercars like a 2009 Audi R8 available over the course of this month's auction.
