I am just a girl who loves muscle cars and wants to share her joy. I recently bought a new Camaro and am enjoying the muscle car scene at West Houston Muscle and H-Town Camaro.

Mecum 2012

Mecum Auctions came to Houston, Texas, for the very first time this year, and I was lucky enough to win tickets (thank you WHM president for the win!).  It was also my very first time going to a Mecum Auction.

Lots of amazing cars were up for auction, including some very nice looking Camaros. (Of course I had to mention Camaros, I am Camaro Kitty...what were you expecting? ;) Some of my favorites, aside from the Camaros, were the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car, the 1931 Cadillac V12 Roadster, and the 1980 Excalibur Phaeton Convertible. I enjoyed looking at many more cars, but I am sure you would rather just view the pictures than read a list of favorites. ;)

Aside from looking at the cars for sale, I also got to sit front row at the auction and watch the bidding. It was a good thing I wasn't registered to bid, or the temptation would have been too great! (No, I didn't bid, this Kitty needs to save up some money!) The seats were awesome though, and there was some fast paced bidding going on all around me! 

The top sale was a 2010 Ferrari California Spyder that went for $177,500 and second highest was a 1931 Cadillac V12 Roadster 368 CI, 3-Speed that sold for  $165,000. They both came from the Sterling McCall Old Car Museum Collection.

I thoroughly enjoyed going to the auction, and will definitely be attending again the next time they are in town!

  1. Wow! I’m seriously envious that you got free tickets! But anyway, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed splurging in Camaro classics and other vintage cars. I noticed you’re really into muscle and sports car. You’re such a cool girl! :) I love Roadsters too, by the way. I’m addicted to sporty handling and open cars.
