Collector cars from high-profile collections and individual offerings that stand out as headline-worthy attractions all on their own have been added to the lineup for Glendale 2022, Mecum’s fourth annual auction at State Farm Stadium in Arizona slated for this March 16-19. The auction will feature an estimated 1,500 classic and collector vehicles on offer along with approximately 200 pieces of Road Art and memorabilia.
