If you weren’t in Houston last week, you missed out on another great auction from Dana Mecum and company. Their fast-paced bidding is unlike any other event, and their hammer prices are used to feel the pace of our industry. The NRG center is a large venue that contains the Astrodome along with a massive parking lot. It was witness to a 70% sell-through rate.
The three-day event saw 621 cars find new owners, for a total of $21,400,000 in sales. Proving that limited supply causes bidding frenzy, a new Dodge Demon with only 8 miles hammered for $170,500, and a 2nd example sold for $143,000. The Ford GT will never go out of style, and a 2006 example with 138 miles went for $368,500. Vintage muscle was represented by a 1971 Hemi Challenger ($184,250) and a 1970 Superbird ($181,500).
