Lot 111, a 1991 Dodge Stealth. I’ve always liked these cars and their Mitsubishi cousin’s! They had a lot of problems back in the day, but still very cool cars!

 

Lot 214, BAN-ONE, need I say more?

 

Lot 204, they are only original once! Glad to see this 1940 Ford left that way, the patina on this thing is out of this world awesome!

 

Lot 235, The Skoal Bandit, maybe not as famous as its #33 cousin, but this car is still a cool piece. Top ten finish at Indy in 1995, driven by Rick Mast.

Lot 169 is a very clean, simple Corvette. In the world of big blocks and L88’s, and 427’s, and this and that, it’s just nice to see a simple, clean small block car!

 

Lot 172‘s color is what caught my eye most. Emberglo Orange, check it out!

Old police cars are always cool. I’m not sure the over all collectability of an 86 Dodge Diplomat, but it’s cool to see one in original form non the less! Lot J25

 

I’ve always loved the Aero Coupe Monte Carlo’s and I believe these will be one of the strongest collectibles of the 80’s in time. Even with a few miles, this car is in very good shape! Lot J76

 

I’ve always loved the styling of the Studebaker Hawk line. Very underrated car in my opinion. J167

 

Stay tuned, many more cars to come over the next week from Mecum Kissimmee!
