We’re Watching These Beauties

3 years ago Events

We have all been chomping at the bit to get back into the swing of things. With car shows, races and auctions cancelled across the country, we have been going a little stir crazy. This weekend starts the first Mecum event since the pandemic shut everything down. July 10th through the 18th, Mecum Auctions will be in Indianapolis, Indiana, with over 2,500 vehicles up for grabs. As usual, there are a few that have piqued our interest and we will be watching. If money was no object, which one would you pick?
