This past weekend was the annual Mecum Auto Auction in Anaheim, Ca at the Convention Center. The auction featured a number of great classic cars, muscle cars and hot rods all up for sale. There was also a great collection of nostalgia and collectibles up for auction as well. Here are some of my photos from Saturday morning.
The halls of the convention center were packed with 100's of classic cars like this Chevy Impala. Since you have the chance to walk up and look inside all of the vehicles, it really is like going to a car show. Mecum auction coverage is broadcast on the VelocityNetwork, but here are some photos of everything you might have missed.
