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!
