Mecum Auction Indianapolis Recap

The Mecum Auction was here in Indianapolis last month. The Mecum Auction Company is the world leader in collector cars and motorcycles and they host auctions all across the states. For Indiana, it is the biggest car auction in the state each year they come. This year’s particular event was televised on NBCSN. Two members of our team, Steve, and Jason were trusted enough to wipe down the cars right before they hit the stage to be auctioned off. There were some very beautiful cars that went across that stage that went for a lot of money. Here is a recap of some of the most expensive cars that were sold that week:
