Car auction returns to Kissimmee

January 1, 2018 by  

A hugely popular auto show that draws visitors from around the world is coming back to Kissimmee.

Mecum Auctions car show, which features more than 3,000 vehicles, will return to the city early next year. The show will take place at Osceola Heritage Park, the 12th year it has come to this venue.

The show’s popularity, and the number of people who come to see it, results in a boost of millions of dollars in revenue to the local area. Conventions like this are important to the local tourist industry, since they are open to everyone, and bring both professionals and families to the area.

The array of cars to be auctioned includes classic American muscle cars, as well as world-class dragsters. The list of cars set for the auction block includes Shelbys, Porsches, Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, and Corvettes. Some of them have been professionally restored, while some are still in their original vintage condition.

There will be several special attractions at the show as well, like limited-edition cars that go for more than $3m. Some others have been driven by professional race car drivers, and some are race winners.

The event is scheduled for January 5 to 14. To make things even more fun, the NBC Sports Network will broadcast the proceedings.

Organizers of this type of event could work with a catalog printing company to develop an item for visitors.
