Today marks the first of 10 straight days of continuous muscle cars and more crossing the block with Mecum hosting the world’s largest collector car auction at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida. The 3,000-car lineup set to sell at the Jan. 18-27 event is a number never before breached and is where the mantra, “Where the Cars Are,” derives from.
Among the endless variety of cars slated to appear, over 300 Corvettes and nearly 170 Camaros will cruise along Mecum’s distinctive red carpet. The expansive inventory guarantees that each one of the 10 days in Kissimmee will have something unique to offer, including an entire day dedicated solely to Road Art on Monday, Jan. 21.
Sellers, bidders and spectators are all welcome to view the cars and watch Mecum’s Kissimmee auction live in the arena. General admission tickets can be purchased at the gate for $20, and there is still time to register to bid. Onsite bidder registration can be completed at the Osceola Heritage Park grounds at the booth located in the auction arena. Online bidding for Road Art items will be available at www.Mecum.com.
A total of 32 hours of this exciting event will be broadcast on live national TV on Discovery’s Velocity network. For additional consignment and bidder information, call (262) 275-5050 or visit www.Mecum.com.
