 Mecum Auctions’ most recent collector car auction in Kansas City, Missouri, topped off a great year. The event brought $11.5 million in sales, boosted the year’s total to near the coveted $300 million mark. With 520 lots sold at the Kansas City Convention Center, a strong sell-through rate of 65 percent was reached.
 Kansas City’s crowning achievement and top sale was a 2012 COPO Camaro (Lot S135.1). This purpose-built, factory drag car hammered at $140,000. The Twister Specials, built exclusively for the ford Kansas City Sales District dealers, refused to be outdone in their own hometown. Lot S89 brought in $140,000 as well with the next lot (S90) bringing $130,000.
