Me and a couple friends went to the Mecum auction in Indy yesterday. Here's some cars I thought were interesting. I'll add more pics later.

Oh man i wanted to go,but couldn’t.I watched it on Motor Trend...Only problem was too many commercials,lol.There sure we’re some nice cars though..I can’t believe that huge pick up on the Dodge chassis went for $200K???Crazy.The rest of the auction will be even better.Even nicer cars.

Yes there were some huge p/u trucks there and also some brand new Broncos with huge wheels/tires from the factory.

Love that Marlin. Funny how so many cars I would not give a second look to back in the day seem so darn cool now ! Same way  with models.

I know what you mean. I think the cars that didn't catch our eye back in the day really stand out now, compared to most new cars that for the most part look the same.

MAN!!!!

I bet that one-off 54 Vett goes for at least $150,000 

EDIT : Oops, just noticed , it's a reproduction. $35,000.

This is just the second time I've been at Mecum in the last 5-6 years. I was there for just 6-7 hours but you need at least two days if you want to see most everything. Here's some more pics....

Did you have a favorite car?There are so many,I really like that gold Smokey Yunick turbo Vega.But my favorite so far has to be that green Hemi Daytona which sold yesterday for over a million dollars.Not to mention that Orange 69 Superbee.Love those Mopars.Looked like you really enjoyed yourself.Watching as much as i can on Motor Trend.

Hard to say which was my favorite, there were so many! But lately I really like Ford Torinos. Especially that orange one with the 429 shown in my previous post. But I really like Mopars also, especially Challengers and Daytonas.
