Another record setting sale is in the books for Mecum’s annual January visit to Central Florida. We’ve been attending Mecum’s Kissimmee auctions since the end of last century and we are still amazed at just how large this sale has become.
We had the run of the place on Saturday to watch some of the significant Star Cars and during the visit we ran into many friends including collector Ken Lingenfelter, top Corvette restorer Kevin Mackay and Terry Michaelis of ProTeam Corvettes.
Mecum’s 2017 Kissimmee auction featured a huge amount of Corvettes among the 3,000 cars for sale during the multi-week auction. Of the 272 Corvettes presented, 192 were sold which was a sell through rate of 70%.
