Mecum Auctions has announced a two-day auction extravaganza, Texas style! The largest collector car auction company rolls into Houston, Texas, for its inaugural event April 13-14, 2012. The Reliant Center will accommodate over 600 vehicles all conveniently displayed under one roof.
A wide variety of vehicles will cross the auction block; highlights include longtime Houston businessman and collector Sterling McCall offering 25 cars from his “Old Car Museum,” such as a 1931 Cadillac V12 Roadster (Lot S98) and a 1936 Cadillac V16 Sedan (Lot S94). Amos Minter, a well-known Thunderbird collector who also hails from the Lone Star State, will auction an award winning Red/Red 1957 Ford Thunderbird (Lot S117) from his personal collection.
President and CEO Dana Mecum expressed, “Last October our company made its Texas debut in the city of Dallas where we were met with a rollicking response. We recognized that Southeast Texas was also hungry for the Mecum brand of auction action, so naturally we gravitated toward the great city of Houston and are excited to bring our auction experience to The Reliant Center.”
The Houston auction is open to the general public beginning Friday morning and continues through Saturday. Gates open daily at 8 a.m. Central Time with tickets available at the door for only $15. Discovery’s Velocity Network will broadcast live from The Reliant Center during both days of action. Don’t get left out in the cold, as the consignments are quickly filling the schedule; if you want to be part of this historic inaugural auction event as a buyer or seller go to www.mecum.com or call 262.275.5050.
