Virginia Beach is an independent city located in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area of Virginia, on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Although Fairfax County is the most populous jurisdiction in the state of Virginia, Virginia Beach is the most populous city in the state, as well as the 39th largest city in the United States, with a population of 437,994 according to the 2010 Census. Virginia Beach is the easternmost city of the Hampton Roads (or "Tidewater") area that makes up the core of the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC MSA. This area, known as "America's First Region", also includes the independent cities of Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Suffolk, as well as other smaller cities, counties and towns of Hampton Roads. Virginia Beach is a resort city with miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels, motels, and restaurants along its oceanfront. Every year the city hosts the East Coast Surfing Championships as well as the North American Sand Soccer Championship, a beach soccer tournament. It is also home to several state parks, several long-protected beach areas, three military bases, a number of large corporations, two universities, Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment, and numerous historic sites. Near the point where the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet, Cape Henry was the site of the first landing of the English colonists, who eventually settled in Jamestown, on April 26, 1607. The city is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the longest pleasure beach in the world. It is located at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, the longest bridge-tunnel complex in the world.
"Several of us certified auto appraisers decided to attend a Collector Car Auction Virginia Beach last December. We were amazed at how many people were at this car auction. The vehicles were spectacular. Rare cars such as the Mercedes Benz Gulf Wing and Shelby Concept were up for auction. Vendors like Meguiar's Car Care Products and Continental Tires were among some of the vendors that displayed products for the show.
The show last 3 days, starting on a Friday and ending on a Sunday afternoon. We were amazed at how much vehicles were going for and how fast the hit $5 million in sales. I think the mark was hit mid day on Friday. During our time away from the car auction we spent some time talking with local certified auto appraisers. We were curious to know how the local climate affects the condition of a vehicle. Its always good to talk to others that are in the same industry as you will always learn something whether is they way you condition a vehicle or dispute a total loss claim with an insurance company. I would have to say the trip to Virginia Beach, VA was well worth the time and money. Not only did we enjoy being around vehicles that we love; we also got to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather in Virginia."
