Eastern Museum of Motor Racing
AUTO AUCTION & SWAP MEET
The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing is excited to host the first annual Auto Auction
and Swap Meet. Our objectives of the Auction and Swap Meet are to bring people with
an interest in Automobiles and Racing together at the Museum and Fairgrounds to buy,
sell and swap some of our treasures. All of the proceeds from the Auction and Swap
Meet will benefit the Museum and Fairgrounds, which is a non- profit organization.
The highlight of our first annual Auction is a vehicle that is iconic with hot rodding and
classic cars. It is a 1950 Mercury Coupe. It was owned by the late Smokey Snellbaker.
Smokey was also an icon in Open Wheel Racing. He competed in Open Wheel racing
in Central PA for decades. He had great success winning for numerous car owners on
many tracks, multiple Track Championships and is in the National Sprint Car Hall of
Fame. His Mercury will be auctioned off at 1:00 PM. The proceeds for the sale of this
car will all go to the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing. There has been much interest
in this car. We will be accepting reserve bids before the start of the auction. A signed
form and proof of payment will be required (credit card or letter of bank credit).
