Mecum Houston: Thursday Cars To Watch

Its Mecum Auction time again! This auction takes Mecum to The Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Here are our cars to watch for Day 1, Thursday!

TOP-10

 

Lot T127: 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28

My favorite body style of all the Camaro’s, these late second generation cars have came on strong over the last few years. This is a very nice example of one with the Z28 package and the rare 4-speed.

Lot T126: 1964 AMC Rambler American Convertible

This is a rare piece for sure, but rare isn’t always desirable. Very interested to see how big or little money this one goes for. Check out the rare “twin stick” overdrive set up on it!

Lot T191: 1972 Chevy C10 Truck

What an awesome truck, a mix of new technology with the A/C and LED tail lights but a truck that still keeps the classic look.

Lot T209: 1957 Chevy Wagon 150

I love a 1957 Chevy 150, I love the basic look, a wagon is even better! Check this one out!

1957

 

Lot T266: 1966 Dodge Charger

The ugly duckling so to speak of the Dodge Chargers. It caught my eye because we once had a 1966 Charger, only ours had the 426 Hemi in it.

Lot T270: 1951 Ford Custom Sedan

It’s hard to beat the look of a 1951 Ford. This one is a little too stock for my liking but a nice car non the less.

51

 

Lot T289: 1990 Chevy Corvette ZR1

“King Of The Hill”, this was my dream Corvette growing up. This is a very, very nice example of a well kept ZR1.

Lot T302: 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R

One of my bucket list cars, one of two hundred and fifty ever made.

Lot T333: 1990 Chevy Silverado Truck

This is an interesting item, an old school tow rig. I really like the late model wheels, but the long bed kinda kills it too. Still a nice truck though, just not sure if its collectible or with today’s modern diesel’s usable enough to bring any kind of decent price.

1990

 

Lot T322: 1996 Chevy Grand Sport Corvette

I read an article at the begging of the year that stated the 1996 Grand Sport was one of the most collectible Corvette’s of all time. Personally I just don’t see it. Maybe this one will fetch big money and prove me wrong!

Tuesday’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Top 10 Cars To Watch

First edition of this daily series of entries I will be putting out this week. My top ten cars to watch each day at Barrett-Jackson. Just ten cars or trucks I’d want to bid on if I was at Westworld with a pocket full of cash! In no real particular order.

TOP-10

1963 C10 Yenko Truck
Lot Number 17

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
This thing is awesome. Old shop trucks are cool, especially when the shop is one of the most famous in the world sporting the Yenko logo. Recreation or not this would defiantly get some looks at the local cruise night.

1972 Datsun 240Z
Lot Number 49

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Z cars are super cool and this one has all the right stuff, big turbo, big brakes, great suspension. These cars are really underrated in most people’s eyes on how well they perform and handle. I’m really curious to see what kind of money this one brings.

1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
Lot Number 37

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
4-speed Trans Am’s are cool in whatever color, but the blue on blue is a very good looking combination. I’m a sucker for cars that have similar colored stripes as they do paint.
bluebird

1973 Plymouth Duster
Lot Number 73

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
These cars are going to come on strong in a few years I think as all the other years get bought up. Personally I like the 72/73 body style better than the 70-71.

Street Legal NASCAR COT
Lot Number 99

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
How cool would it be to own your own NASCAR race car that you could drive on the street? You would defiantly be a hit at the local cruise night.

1949 Ford Cab Over
Lot Number 124

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
A little odd, but way cool. Different is key here!

1955 Chevrolet Cameo Truck
Lot Number 79

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Cameo trucks are some of the most beautiful trucks GM ever put on the road. This white 1955 is a great example of that beauty. With only 15k miles this has to be one of the nicest original Cameo’s left!

1950 Ford F1
Lot Number 142

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Owning a hot rodded version of this truck myself this one caught my eye right away. An original example is on my bucket list so I’m curious to see what this one brings.

1968 Chevrolet Custom Pick Up
Lot Number 155

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
In my opinion the best of the 67-72 Chevy trucks. In the world of over the top crazy custom builds this one is a nice, refreshing, clean example. Its hard not to like!

1960 Morris Minor
Lot Number 161

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Rare isn’t always cool……you be the judge on this one!
