Sure, the bright lights of Scottsdale, Arizona lure in high-dollar muscle machines for the Barrett-Jackson auction. The beautiful seaside town of Monterey attracts the ultra-rich as they down champagne alongside the stages of the RM and Gooding auctions. In the town of Kissimmee, Florida, however, we were in attendance for a different auction. Yes, there were plenty of mighty machines on display, and a bit of booze flowed forth from the VIP section just off the stage. But it’s a different experience to take in a Mecum auction event, thanks to the quality crowd and varied machines.
Mecum plays host to a long-running, well-choreographed auction affair that unfolds in various cities across the country. You’ve probably caught one of their auctions on the Velocity network, and taking one in live is far more fun than doing so from the comfort of your couch.
