It was an ordinary day. Snapping photos left and right! Just love the cars that are scattered all over the Farm Show Arena, inside and outside, for the 1st Mecum Auto Auction. My friend Dale and I made a trip to see the auction in real time, since watching it on TV just about every day wasn't good enough. Dale just called to tell me that the projected sales of $10 Million had turned out to be $20 Million, so they have decided to return next year. I have included photos and some basic information about some of the cars that were crossing the auction block during the three-day auction in Harrisburg, PA. Hope you can find one that you may have been interested in bidding on during the auction. I'm sure that reruns of this auction will find their way onto Velocity Network in the near future. It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
|(3 photos) This subdued looking car is a 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne. It's small chrome hubcaps, beautiful blue paint job and light blue interior doesn't lead one think to think that it has a 454 Cubic Inch with 350 Horsepower under the hood.|
|(4 photos) This 1937 Ford Custom Pickup is great. It has Ford power with a 351 engine stroked to 393 CI. The hardtop is removable and the leather interior is beautiful. The silver paint seems to glow and I love the raked looked of the truck.|
