SHOUT-OUT!

Mecum car auction/car show Kissimmee 1/2/20 -1/12/20

I am already  looking forward to our adventures in the up coming year. I cannot believe that 2020 is just a few weeks away.

Therefore, I am already looking at the first shout out of the year.   I am referring to the worlds largest collector car auction/car show, Mecum Car Auction that comes to Kissimmee January 2-12.     To make things even more interesting, we have one of our own members, Dave Myers who will be putting his car in the auction.  His car is tentatively scheduled for Saturday January 4.

I am still working on the specific details, and I do appreciate any and all suggestion. There has been some discussion of perhaps getting a group together for some condos/or even a house to share.

This is a 10 day event,  that will host over 3000 cars in the sales inventory, plus lots of entertainment, road art and fellowship with other car enthusiast. It is so large that you really will not be able enjoy it all in just one day.  Which is why I would recommend the advanced purchase of a bidder's pass for $100.00 that gets 2 people into the entire 10 day event.   You can also slide a 3rd person in under the bidder's pass for and additional $50.00. So if you did go every day, that would make the admission price of $5.00 per day, per person.   You can purchase advanced bidder's tickets through January 1, 2020.  It is well worth the upgrade from the single day tickets, which is $20.00 per person in advanced, or $30.00 at the gate. 

I personally do not purchase the bidder's pass with the idea that I am going to bid on a car, but for all the rock star perks that goes along with it.  It gives you access to all area's of the auction, including private dinning area  

I know that some of you have indicated that you may not be able to go as you may still have family in town.  However, this is an event that would be enjoyed by all.   Dodge will be there providing "thrill rides" for free.   I call this event  Disney for Car lovers

If you go, I am sure you will not be disappointed, and you will find yourself walking down memory lane.  You may see your first car, your parents first car, or even a car from the movies from your childhood.   

This year one of the "TV Stars" is going to be "The Bullitt" the 1968 Ford Mustang, which was driven by Steve McQueen.  

If you have mobility issues, I recommend either bringing or renting a mobility scooter.  If you have access to a mobility scooter, but doe not have room in your vehicle, we will probably be driving the Avalanch, which we could fit 2-3 scooters in the back of.
