The ZR1 is the “King Of The Hill”, for years, THE Vette I always wanted. This particular ZR1 in Lot 7004.1 is the “Active Suspension” prototype, making it ultra rare out of the GM Heritage Collection.

 

Lot 1289.1, yeah, that’s a Pontiac Fuel Injected car, ultra rare! Ultra cool!

 

Lot 1456, the JFK Ambulance, always a car surrounded in a little bit of controversy. One things for sure, it always makes for good TV!

 

Lot 1390, better known as CERV 1. Developed by Zora Arkus-Duntov, one of the most innovative, important pieces of automotive history in American history. This car has a real chance at being top seller of the weekend in my opinion.

 

“Tanker” Corvette’s are cool, split window coupe’s are cool, Z06’s are cool, cars owned by famous people in the automotive world are cool. Well Lot 1363 has all of that and more! Check it out!

 

Honestly, there is just too many awesome cars to talk about today! Just get in front of the TV and watch all of Velocity’s coverage!! It’s gonna be epic!

Sadly in the collector car world “Hemi” just doesn’t do what it used to, but when you ad convertible to it, it still rings the bell! The GTX convertible is one of the rarest of them all! Lot L77┬áis 1 of 11!

 

 

Lot 82.1 not only carries three legendary drivers signature, but one of them on the door as well. Signed by Shelby, Unser, and Bondurant. This Bob Bondurant racing Mustang is a cool piece of history for anyone’s collection!

I love a Superbird, but the white on Lot L84 may be the classiest color of them all.

Lot 79.1, better known as King Of The Hill, the ZR1. This low mile example should really ring the bell!

Lot L40 brings us the first Foxbody Mustang of the auction. This is an SSP car, meaning basically it was a cop car. This particular one was a Florida Highway Patrol Car. These cars have been doing really good at auctions as of late, it will be interesting to see what trend this one sets for the year.

The last of the Mecum cars, lot F122, this is probably my favorite, “The Black Widow” 1957 Chevrolet. This particular car was drive by Jack Smith.

When you think 50’s NASCAR race car, the Hudson Hornet has to be one of the first to come to mind. This particular car isn’t a real race car, but a tribute to the legendary “Fabulous Hudson Hornet”. Lot 973 at Barrett-Jackson, check it out!

Lot 7004 is a 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo “Intimdator” Show Car. Built in honor of Dale Earnhardt, the car was a sort of prototype to future Monte Carlo styling. This car has been in the GM Heritage Collection. This is definitely a one of a kind piece!
