One of the largest auctions of classic cars for sale on the planet is being held in Indianapolis this week, with in excess of 2,000 vehicles expected to go under the hammer between now and Sunday.
There is a $15 entry fee for anyone who wants to get in to look at the vintage vehicles and perhaps place a bid, while the total value of the cars on sale is estimated to be over $60 million.
The State Fairgrounds are being used to host the event and a sea of tent canopies can be seen as you approach, protecting the row upon row of classic cars from the elements.
People are travelling from across the country in order to get a glimpse of the classic cars on sale and there should be vehicles for big spenders, as well as more affordable lots for average enthusiasts.
There were some concerns about the safety of the tents housing the cars, as a collapse last year was heavily criticised by organisers.
However, this year, it seems that those in charge are confident in the safety of the rigging and everyone is hoping for a smooth run through the auction.
