If You Need Me on Yom Kippur: The Mecum Car Auction's Coming to Dallas

Mecum Car Auction
Called my dad the other day and asked him: "You know what's coming to the Dallas Convention Center the first week of October?" To which he replied, very matter-of-factly: "Yeah, the Mecum auction." Which he knows because my father, a second-generation car-parts man, spends his occasional free Saturday nights watching the Discovery Channel's HD Theater, which broadcasts the classic-car auctions a few weeks after they were held, usually somewhere in the Midwest.

The press release that pulled into the in-box said the Dallas auction will be broadcast live. I spent the better part of Erev Rosh Hashanah perusing the dozens of pages' worth of autos that'll be driven through across Dallas Convention Center floor October 6-8. What you see at top is what I'll be bidding on, assuming I can find a bank willing to write the letter of guarantee, and I doubt I will. Still, it's never too early for a midlife crisis -- or to fill out the necessary registration forms. What? You say this is during Yom Kippur? I'll apologize next year.

An incredible number of automobiles are sold at supplier auto sales every year. These sales are limited for the community and only certified traders can take part.

Amazing car I must say. I simply love this model as this is very sleek and smart.

We watch that show often, thanks for pointing out that they will be here, we will likely attend to gawk with the peanut gallery (and not to buy anything, mind you, I mean, c'mon, who has that kind of scratch to throw around these days?).

For car buffs, this show is gold, definitely recommended viewing.

I will be bidding on this nice piece of GM muscle so I can pick up my shady friend Angel and deal with crimes left for me to solve on my answering machine.

Do it Robert. So what, you have to pen one extra article a month to pay for it. I'm not a Pontiac fan, but damn those interiors colors were just crap back then, of all makes/models. Wish I still had my 69 chevelle or 70 Mach 1.
