MECUM HEADS TO SCHAUMBURG FOR THE CHICAGO AUCTION
This week we are heading to Schaumburg for the annual
Mecum Chicago Auction,
Thursday, October 6, through Saturday, October 8. This may not be their
biggest auction, but the fact is Nobody sells more than Mecum. Nobody. Mecum
Auctions is our Official Title Sponsor and is the world leader of collector
car, vintage and antique motorcycle, and Road Art sales, hosting auctions
throughout the United States. And don’t think for a minute that this is a
small auction, as Dana and the crew have over 1,000 vehicles scheduled to
cross the block along with some great Road Art.
We will be set up with a display to talk about the upcoming Muscle Car and
Corvette Nationals show. And if you aren’t on our mailing list or not sure
if you are, be sure to stop by and sign up. Our brand new MCACN 80 page
magazine is on the press right now and we will be mailing it out in a few
weeks. You can get your FREE copy by signing up at the Mecum Auction or
here right now. I am very proud of the
new magazine. It is filled with cars and people that you will see at the MCACN show this year. Although there is no way to cover everything, it
certainly gives you a good pre-show peek at what we’ve been up to, and I’m
confident that after reading it, you won’t want to miss the show when we
return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (suburban
Chicago), Illinois, just minutes from the Chicago O’Hare Airport. And
speaking of the O’Hare Airport, let me say there are some really great deals
on flights right now. Since there is no need to rent a car, you can fly in,
take one of the free shuttles either right to our show or to one of our
Official Host Hotels, and enjoy the show!
HOST HOTELS UPDATE; YES...it is true that the DoubleTree O’Hare and the
Embassy Suites O’Hare are now sold out.
We have taken up nearly every room
in both of these hotels, but not to worry...we have availability at THREE
Official Host Hotels, all with great rates and extra perks for our MCACN participants and spectators. The Hyatt O’Hare has Kings at a rate of
just $119 per night with $10 daily parking. This hotel is attached to the
convention center via an overhead “bridge” so you never need to go outside.
The Crowne Plaza O’Hare, right across the street, has Kings at a rate of
$108 per night with parking at just $10 per day. Then we have the cool aLoft,
located behind the Crowne Plaza and right across from the big 150 store
outlet mall, with rooms at $127 per night with FREE daily parking and door
to door shuttle service. So there...we have the bases covered with great
hotels, excellent rates and perfect locations!
Car Entry; We are just about full with limited remaining openings. We have a
few spots in our Corvette Central Triple Diamond display and competition and
the Modern Muscle area and some single car spots. We are set for nearly all
of the Invitational displays, but still looking for a White Boss 351, a few
1966’s, and 2-3 more Barn Find/Hidden Gems. If you have something that you
would like to show, please
let me know asap as we will be in a “standby/sold
out” mode very soon.
Vendor Entry; Commercial “A” is now sold out. We do have limited openings in
Commercial “B” area. This is a great way to get your business into the
action and rates are just $200 per 10 x 12’ space. Must be automotive
related, as we do not allow headset hawkers, travel agencies or other non
car related businesses.
Sell Your Car at MCACN; We have openings in our standard Car Corral for sale
area at the back of the “big” room. Price is just $100 per spot and we move
these cars in Saturday morning. We have five remaining spots in our VIP Car
For Sale area at $250 per car. These cars must be pre-qualified high quality
muscle cars or Corvettes, and they will be located in the center hall with
larger spots. We stanchion the perimeter of this special showcase section.
We also have on onsite staff member stationed here during open show hours to
contact you when a hot prospect shows interest in your car, so that you can
enjoy the show and not be tied to it all weekend. No additional fees are
assessed for either Car For Sale area.
Hope to see you at the Mecum Chicago Auction!
