Top Ten Corvette Sales at Mecum's Kissimmee 2016 Auction


We’ve attending Mecum’s annual Kissimmee auction for over 15 years now, from its humble beginnings as part of the NCRS Winter Regional in Old Town to now being a 10-day, 3000+ car extravaganza held on the grounds of Osceola Heritage Park, and we have to say the 2016 auction was one of the best we’ve ever seen.
