Lot T70.1 stands for LT1, the LT1 Corvette is one of the most awesome Vette’s ever created in my opinion. This on is a factory AC car, which was a one year only option making it among the most rare. This one will surly fetch big money!

 

Lot T79 should let all those guys with 454SS Chevy trucks stuck in their garage if their investment was worth while or not. With less than 5 miles, never dealer prepped, this has to be the nicest most collectible 454SS in the country.

 

Lot T155.1, the Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am, probably the strongest preforming mid 70’s muscle car of them all. These cars, like all Trans Am’s have really came on the money. My dad had almost this identical car but in a 1974 instead of 1973. Wish he would have kept it! This car is a survivor, be interesting to see how it stacks up against a fully restored car price wise!

Being a Challenger T/A owner myself, you know I couldn’t pass this one up. Lot T142 is a great example of a very nice T/A. Hope it brings some big money!

Lot 905: 1991 GMC Saudi Syclone

What makes this one cool: We mentioned another GMC Syclone earlier in the week, but this one is one of 31 “Saudi” Syclone’s that were built for export. Ultra rare, I can’t remember the last time I saw one up for sale. This one has been modded a little bit so we will see how that effects its final auction price.

 

Lot 999: 1969 Ford Talladega 

What makes this one cool: By this point, you know I have a thing for Talladega’s!

Lot 1004: 1970 Plymouth HEMI ‘Cuda Convertible

What makes this one cool: HEMI, ‘CUDA, CONVERTIBLE. Need I say more?

Lot 1024: 1970 Ford Torino King Cobra “Recreation” 

What makes this one cool: Speaking of the Ford Talladega, this one is its evil big brother. A VERY rare car and personally one of my favorites of all time, this one is actually a clone. But even in clone form, this one has a lot of nice parts on it and as rare as they are, I expect this one to go for somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 grand.

Lot 1037: 1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455

What makes this one cool: These cars were factory beasts, rare, and always bring good money.

Lot 1069: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO

What makes this one cool: A lot of COPO cars you see are restored or kept in their factory condition, but honestly, that’s not what they were meant to do, they were meant to drag race. That is exactly what this one did. With its history, it will be interesting to see if that helps or hurts its value.

Lot 1051: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

What makes this one cool: Being that there is one in my garage, I gotta keep my eye on this one!

Mecum Kissimmee 2013: Saturday Cars To Watch

Everyone knows Saturday is the biggest day at any major auction. Mecum Kissimmee is no exception. I mean, I don’t even know where to start. This is such a stacked line up I should probably just post all the cars as ones to watch. But SOMEHOW I’m going to make myself only talk about ten cars. BUT I am going to simply post pictures of some more under “honorable mention”.

TOP-10

Okay, wait a minute, I mean have you looked at the cars at Mecum Kissimmee? Ten? No way. There is more than ten Corvette’s going across the block today that deserve mention. So lets do this, check out my Top Ten Corvettes for Saturday by CLICKING HERE. Even with the Vette’s out of the way it was really hard to pick a top ten. To give you an idea of just how many nice cars are here before I pick the top ten cars to watch for Saturday here is the “honorable mentions”.

69

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Resto-Mod

I have saw and photographed this car in person on several occasions. The attention to detail is out of this world, the flat black paint on top is sinister looking. Tied in with the black vinyl top this is just one good looking Camaro.

hemiracecar

1967 Plymouth Hemi Belvedere Factory Race Car

Hemi, light weight, factory drag car. Need I say more?

bluemule

1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro

The “Blue Mule”.  A very nicely modified, highly optioned, COPO car.

cross ram

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 “Cross Ram”

Cross Ram cars bring a fortune, mix in the big brakes and this one should fetch well into the 100k range.

boss

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429

I’ve saw this one in person too, very nice low mile car. 8,064 miles to be exact.

68

1968 Ford Mustang Factory Lightweight

Our second lightweight car of the day. This one is of the Ford variety.

cuda

1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 

Low miles, unrestored, excellent condition. This car should fetch a mint.

bird

1970 Plymouth Superbird

One of two Superbirds to cross the block today. Four speed, six pack, national show winner. Very curious to see what this one goes for.

33

1966 Ford Mustang Shelby SCCA Race Car

1 of 16 made. With Carol Shelby’s name on it, this car should bring big money.

pontiac

1963 Pontiac Tempest 421 Super Duty

1 of 6 produced. 421 Super Duty. Known as “World’s Fastest Tempest”.
