MECUM AUCTION KANSAS CITY AND LOTS OF
MUSCLE HITS SW MUSCLE CAR NATIONALS THIS WEEKEND!
This is going to be another great weekend if you are a Muscle Car and Corvette enthusiast, like me!
Open right now is the Mecum Kansas City Auction, with over 750 great cars; “Muscle Cars & More” is the Mecum Auction Company tagline, and that surely tells the story! The auction is being held at the Kansas City Convention Center in KC, Missouri. For those of you who have been to a Mecum Auction, we don’t have to tell you how much fun they are. For those that haven’t, we recommend you check them out. Dana Mecum and his crew have a full schedule of Auctions this year, and if you aren’t able to make it to all of them, not to worry; you can sign up for free for their Mecum InfoNet and watch the auction online as it happens! The InfoNet system also allows access to a wide variety of special features and constant updates on prices and bids. Believe me, you will find all kinds of great stuff there, so sign up now!
If you are in the market for a cool car that you can bring to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, November 17-18, chances are you will find it at the Mecum Kansas City Auction! Go to www.mecum.com for a full list of cars, motorcycles, boats and memorabilia that is going across the block this weekend, and if you can’t make it to the auction, sign up to bid online!
If you are closer to Albuqurque, NM, plan on heading over to the Expo New Mexico, (formerly the New Mexico State Fairgrounds) for the Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals, March 29-31. Matt and John Torres and Matts wife Annette launched this show back in 1989. It was the very first indoor mixed make show with a true emphasis on Muscle Cars. Vicki and I had the pleasure of attending the show last year and we had a blast! In addition to spending some quality time with Matt, Annette and John, we also got to hang out with MCACN alumnus from AZ that put together the cool Desert Classics display at the MCACN show. (Thanks Guys!) These folks own some of the finest Muscle Cars in the country and Matt tells me they will be a part of Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals show again this year.
You will see plenty of great cars and meet lots of cool people that share our passion at this show. There will be a special Shelby display, all kinds of prime Mopars and Fords, and not to worry, GM will be well represented with some gorgeous Buick’s, Oldsmobiles, Pontiac’s and Chevy’s, including some show-stopping Corvettes. Yep...there were some sweet AMC’s there too and I am sure there will be more this year. For all the info you need, go to http://www.swmusclecarnats.com/home
