In this blog post, we will take a closer look at Mecum’s 2024 Kissimmee Event and its impact on the collector car world.

History of Mecum Auctions

Mecum Auctions was founded by Dana Mecum, who grew up around cars and developed a passion for them at an early age. In 1988, he held his first auction in Rockford, Illinois with just 14 cars. Today, Mecum Auctions has grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise with auctions that feature thousands of vehicles.

The company’s growth can be attributed to its customer-centric approach and dedication to providing a platform for car enthusiasts to buy and sell their dream vehicles.

Mecum Auctions specializes in a variety of vehicles, including collector cars, motorcycles, and road art. Collector cars are by far the most popular category at Mecum auctions, with a wide range of makes and models available.

The motorcycle division was introduced in 2011 and has quickly become a hit among enthusiasts. The road art category features automobilia, memorabilia, and other items related to the automotive industry.

  1. I have a full-body Winston Cup, 1997, # 23 Jimmy Spencer car. The one he wrecked in Atlanta during qualifying in 1997. No motor, transmission, or rear end. Just the complete body. I also have other sheet-metal; roofs, hoods, bumpers, as well as the full side of the Jeff Gordon #24,and a Camel car #23. I also have several drivers’ suits. I wasn’t able to attend your auction in January in Kissimmee. I am possibly interested in selling my collection in the future and would appreciate if you could furnish me with what the 33 individual NASCAR cars sold for.

    Thank you for any assistance you can offer me.
