AZ Big Media Art Director Mike Mertes spent some time on the auction block this past Saturday taking these photos of the many collector cars that rolled through the auction block. 

There were more than 800 cars that crossed the block from Jan. 17 to 21 at Russo and Steele this year. There were over 130 vendors, and of course, many beautiful cars.  

This was the second year of the auction at Salt River Fields. Russo and Steele updated the layout this year, from the previous year, to include hard surface asphalt for the entire auction pavilion, along with a boosted vendor area.
