Mecum is stacking them deep in Dallas!

A car auction weekend is as good as it gets in our world. Whether we’re selling a car or looking to buy, going into a weekend filled with absolutely astonishing cars, you can’t go wrong with plans like that. If we’re selling a car, and it brings home good money. We party. If we’re selling a car, and it’s a bust. We party. Either side of that coin is a good time waiting to happen. What makes a weekend like this even better is when it’s in our own backyard.

Mecum has rolled into Dallas from October 15th through the 17th. Lined up are a collection of incredible cars that almost anyone would be happy to see in their garage. As we were doing our homework, a handful of them stuck out and we didn’t just want them to fall into the abyss of our internet history. While we won’t say whether or not these are the cars we are going to be going after, if you interested in buying or just looking at some top-notch classics, these are the cars to look out for.

2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster- Lot S120.1

Okay, okay, you already know that this is one of the cars that we will probably be passing on, given it initially retailed for $2+ million. Despite our champagne tastes on a beer budget, you’ve got to appreciate an absolute piece of art that Pagani’s are. Horacio Pagani is truly an artist in ever sense of the word, just his art pieces are on 4-wheels and top out at 238 MPH.
