7 sweet surprises from the Mecum Eddie Vannoy auction
Online auctions are the new normal in the collector car world, but this week Mecum successfully pulled off something of a hybrid—limited number of bidders and guests at a live venue combined with an online platform that opened for bidding four days earlier. Held in North Carolina, the auction featured 83 vehicles (mostly muscle cars and trucks) from construction CEO Eddie Vannoy, along with hundreds of pieces of automobilia and a few motorcycles.
Total sales amounted to $7.15M, and there were absolutely no bargains to be found. Of the vehicles with a presale estimate, over 60 percent sold above their high estimate, and Mecum wasn’t exactly stingy with its predictions. While not a huge group of cars, this sale was packed with strong sales and surprises. Here are the ones that surprised us the most.
Big car auction in Greensboro, NC coming soon. It draws a big crowd with amazing cars.. Oh, oh. that was before the pandemic COVID. They have announced only those selling a car will be admitted. No general admissions. So, 20 -80 people may wander into the cavernous building and look try to sell their cars. It is the death of car shows. The germ warfare attach on America has crippled the economy. Jobs lost from those who design automobiles to those who serve food at an auto show. Will it ever recover?
