World’s Largest Collector-Car Auction Returns to Kissimmee, Florida, with Massive Lineup
WALWORTH, WI – November 22, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Mecum Auctions, the world’s largest collector-car auction company, will return to Kissimmee, Florida, for the world’s largest annual collector-car auction offering more than 3,000 classic and collector cars at Mecum Kissimmee 2018 this Jan. 5-14.
Now in its 12th year at Osceola Heritage Park, Mecum Kissimmee will once again be the focus of the collector-car market as 60 acres are taken over by a fantastic showcase of 3,000 vehicles ranging from entry-level collector vehicles to multimillion-dollar investment pieces. The mega auction with its massive car-show-style layout will be complemented by thousands of Road Art offerings—including automobilia, petroliana and more—as well as the “Dodge Thrill Ride” and other attractions that add to the festival-like atmosphere of the immense auction.
This year’s auction lineup includes an amazing array of vehicles headlined by world-class drag cars and top-shelf vintage American muscle. With nearly two months still left until the auction, the current roster is already loaded with an abundance of Porsches, Shelbys, Yenkos and Hemi-equipped Mopars. Hundreds of Corvettes, Chevelles, Camaros and Mustangs are also set to cross the auction block, highlighted by some of the finest vintage original examples along with professionally restored and Resto Modded vehicles as well. No-reserve offerings number into the hundreds, and throughout the 10-day event, dozens of well-known and renowned private-collection offerings from all over the country will also be offered for sale.
In addition to the 3,000 cars, Mecum’s Road Art segment will bring a whole added aspect of excitement to the auction block with two full Road Art-only auction days and thousands of items, this year highlighted by the Flexlume Sign Collection—the holy grail of pre-neon and neon lighted signs.
