Car collectors everywhere are heading to Pomona, California, to check out the latest collector vehicles to cross the auction block. This weekend, February 16 & 17, the Mecum Auction will not disappoint Dodge fans at The Fairplex in Pomona.
This event is a Dodge fan favorite. Who wouldn’t love a reason to be in Southern California and escape the winter cold? If you were there last year, you probably remember the torrential rainfall that had detailers scrambling to get cars ready to cross the auction block. Luckily, the forecast for this week is nothing but sunshine and low 80s. Perfect!
Mecum is a family-run business with Dana Mecum at the helm and his family keeping the show going. They’ve grown to be the largest seller of classic and collector cars in the world. Last year alone, they sold more than 20,000 cars, including a number of high profile Dodges! Speaking of Dodge, there are a number of interesting ones rolling across the block this weekend:
