'With over 20,000 anticipated visitors and an amazing selection of cars guaranteed, we encourage collector car enthusiasts to make their attendance plans as early as possible.'

The Motoring Festival is a perfect fit with our existing events calendar, both in terms of its timing, as well as its location; Auctions America specializes in hosting events in some of the country’s leading automotive destinations, and Hilton Head Island is certainly a hub for collector car enthusiasts.
