Mecum Auctions, Osceola Heritage Park, Kissimmee, January 3-12, 2020 — Part II: Ford-Watson

Tags: ,

This is Part II of Mecum Kissimmee, starting with Fords and ending with Watson (as in legendary Indy mechanic, crew chief and constructor A.J. Watson.) It’s a little shorter than Part I, mostly because it doesn’t have to include all those Camaros and Corvettes. It does, however, include the highlight of the auction calendar’s first […]

When Mecum set up shop in Kissimmee eleven years ago it was an audacious bet that the team from Marengo, Illinois could – from scratch, without any tradition and a week before the long-established Scottsdale auctions – build a big mainstream collector car auction in the fields of central Florida. And have they ever done […]

Mecum Auctions, Kissimmee, January -13, 2019 Part I: Acura-Ferrari

I have some help with auction reporting these days, which is a Good Thing. But sometimes a Good Thing becomes a challenge, and that was true at Kissimmee this year where Jossan Elias and Andrew Newton added 135 observations. Combined we took advantage of the opportunity Mecum presents to give an early year cross-section of […]

It is doubtful that even the ever-optimistic Dana Mecum thought that Mecum Auctions’ 2010 venture into central Florida the week before the Scottsdale auctions would become in and of itself a celebration of collector cars. That first year there were 1,071 cars in Kissimmee. 701 were reported sold (65.5%) and a total of $26,161,356 changed […]
