So, who watched/are watching the Kissimmee 2022 Mecum Auctions? Some of THE most exquisite restorations, orginals, customs, etc. that I have ever personally seen. Something for everyone. January 14 brought a ton of really stunning vehicles. Huge money for some really awesome cars. I watched January 14, Episode 5 and was blown away. I just saw a 1957 Chevrolet 150 Custom with black and white paint (Black Widow replica) with a 350 cu. in. fuel injected engine that sold for $95,000. It was preceded by a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 'Lonnie' (stunning all around) that sold for $325,000. Another 1955 Chevrolet 150 Custom with 454 cu. in. power and stunning red and black paint (gorgeous) sold for $155,000. It went on and on and on. So must automotive eye candy.

There were lots of Hemi Cudas, a custom 1970 Hemi Charger (sold for $300,000), Corvettes, Mustangs, trucks, and so much more. One of the absolute best auctions I've seen. I still have to watch an earlier January 14 episode, and January 13 (two episodes).

Anyone else get to watch Kissimmee 2022 Mecum Auctions?

Here's a link to the main page of featured lots. Click on dates to see some of the stuff going on the block. You won't see sale prices unless you are registered member. Easy to do. Just provide your name and email address. Create a password. You may be asked for your address and car preferences, which I had no problem providing. I follow Mecum so I like being able to see sale prices when I'm browsing their site.

I have been watching on line all week (had it running at work off on a side screen), even bought something last sunday (not sensational, to most).

BTW today a 93 Cobra (non R) red, black cloth, 1200 miles, sold for $110k..... wow...... Many crazy numbers.....

I've been at the auction since Wednesday and you're right. There are some fantastic cars here and the prices reflect it. I bought a Thursday car and probably paid too much but couldn't help myself. It is a 1969 l78 "375hp 396" number matching orange chevelle with a black vinyl top.

Did you guys see the reef blue notch, I think it went for mid 40s. Prices were definitely up there. This is a must go for car guys "and girls" put it on your list.

We need some photos of that soon. Hugger Orange? And what trans?
Hope to have my L78 done and in my Impala before spring is over.

Pricing was nutty dating back to 2016 and ramping up since. 2020 was the year to buy anything as it dropped off and 2021 was a little off but 2022 appears to be rocking upwards where 2019 left off. It’s too late to 2nd guess now. If you felt good then, then you’re happy. Congratulations on the new acquisition. Most likely the stuff I’d be interested in, is out of my price range anyways, but I’ll blame that I’m just cheap and stingee lol.

We were watching at work and some of the kids were amazed that they could get an older non-collectable great looking car for under $30k.

Really at the point you’re buying for the experience vs getting a deal. Between the bidder card, 10% buyers fee, transportation, tax, etc etc. you’d better off buying or even paying more for a private party pickup where you can get into the nitty gritting of what you’re getting and for what. Show caters (rightfully so) to the exclusive, rare, high quality/ low quantity cars that you’re not going to find on car gurus dealer lots etc etc.

The reef blue with an auto, and Coyote? Ahhhh, that went for $71.5k.....

Agreed auctions are a LOT of fun, off to Scottsdale auction week, next week. Even if your not buying, its a fantastic car show.

IDN Bob watching those auctions is like watching paint dry....... Nothing ever sells and everything is over priced.

That’s why I record each episode, and then fast forward, stopping at only the cars or collections I’m interested in.

Most of these 3 hour blocks on motortrend I can bang out in under an hour.
