And on top of that, before the auction you can go to the Mecum website and see all the cars that will be up for auction. Typically, the lower end cars will go on the block on the first day or two of the sale, with the more expensive cars saved for the weekend, especially the final day. What this means is you may actually find a kinda, sorta dream car you might be able to afford. For instance, there might be a 1969 Camaro Z28 in the auction which will typically go somewhere in the $50,000 to $150,000 range on Sunday, depending upon who is there that wants one, but there might also be a 1969 Camaro with a 307 or 350 that will for for $15,000 to $30,000 on Wednesday or Thursday. This could be a car you’ve always wanted, which you now could get for about the cost of a new compact car (or even less), and then could modify yourself as time and money allowed. Also, you don’t even have to be there to participate: you can bid online or by telephone - you just have to pre-qualify and put down a deposit, just as you’d have to do if you were there in person. I’m not saying this is for everyone, but it could be an option for some people.
