“Manheim Pennsylvania was thrilled to host our annual “100 Grander” Sale on March 14. This sale combined five highly sought after vehicle categories: vehicles over $100,000, classic cars and muscle cars, and vehicles between $75,000-$100,000,” said Tim Van Dam, VP and GM of Manheim Pennsylvania. “We also chose The Wounded Warrior Project™ as our benefit charity because of its impact on the lives of Americans who have given a tremendous sacrifice to defend our freedom.”
