Last year’s Mecum auction at Kissimmee proved a resounding success, with in excess of 1,500 vehicles selling for a grand total of over $58 million in sales with a 73% sell-through rate. The 2013 event is set to be no less impressive, with thousands of cars, motorcycles, and pieces of automobilia available in this highly anticipated event on the collector car calendar.
