Over 12,000 attendees filled the auction ring as 708 vehicles crossed the block April 13-14, 2012 at The Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Mecum offered an exceptional variety of cars during their two-day inaugural auction, achieving an incredible 80% sell-through rate with total sales exceeding $18.5 million for the weekend.
Dana Mecum, President and CEO of Mecum Auctions commented, “There has always been a perception that no collector car auction company has ever been able to have a successful auction in Houston. I am happy to report that Mecum certainly made it happen in Houston. We received a warm Texas welcome from the moment our crew set foot on the grounds until the final fall of the gavel at The Reliant Center. We certainly look forward to coming back to Houston in 2013.”
