May 22, 2017 -- This year marked the 30th anniversary of the Mecum Spring Classic in Indianapolis, and what a show it was. Over five days, Mecum ran more than 2000 muscle cars, hot rods, resto mods, sports cars and other 4-wheeled fun machines across its auction block, and as usual the offerings were impressive. We could tell right away that the Mecum team had cooked up something special, as we walked through a curtain of smoke at the entrance of the venue (as seen above) . Once inside, 12 lanes of staged vehicles were lined up, awaiting their appearance on the auction block. Of course, there were several other buildings on the fairgrounds filled with more classic vechicles. And, reving up the excitement, the sounds of the Dodge Boys, giving Thrill Rides on an outside drift course, could be heard throughout the complex.
Here are just some of the highlights from the auction floor.
