Mecum Launches New Monterey Week Auction

Mecum Auction Company announced the formation of a new auction that will take place on Saturday, August 15, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Resort & Spa on the Del Monte Golf Course in Monterey, California. The one-day auction will feature 100 cars up for bid.

“Mecum Auction is starting a new chapter in our exhilarating company history book by expanding into new market areas,” said President Dana Mecum.  “Although we have specialized in muscle cars, our expert team is extremely knowledgeable about selling exotic sports cars, classics and other high-end collector vehicles.  In fact, Mecum was selling world-class Ferraris in the late ’80s.  We are thrilled to launch the Monterey Auction and look forward to giving attendees a new event they’re sure to never forget.”

Cars will be displayed outside the Hyatt Regency Monterey’s beautiful, centrally located site while the bidding arena will be staged in a 10,000-square-foot ballroom.

“The convenient location of the facility and our decision to create a Saturday afternoon auction from noon to 5 p.m. will fit nicely into the week’s schedule for bidders and attendees,” Mecum said, adding they will also host a pre-auction brunch the morning of the sale.

The Mecum experts are currently consigning collections for Monterey and interested parties can contact Dana Mecum at (815) 568-8888. For additional information, visit
