The fun of a Mecum Auction is that there is something for everyone. Classics, trucks, rods, sports cars, exotics, they all cross the block about once a month wherever the next Mecum auction is held. In this case, it’s the annual Mecum Chicago Auction at the Schaumberg Renaissance Convention Center, ending today after a three-day sale.
For a collector car fan, it’s like a great, big candy store. So in choosing my favorites from the massive Mecum catalog, I placed some parameters on my choices.
In the spirit of the diverse catalog, I picked one from the following categories: trucks, ‘50’s cars, muscle cars, hot rods, imports, and sports cars. In the spirit of Everyman, I limited my selections to the cars parked outside in the tents rather than the marquee cars inside the red-carpeted showroom.
