Mecum Indy 2013 - Burned Out Hemi

We're fortunate to be able attend, and sometimes setup, at some really incredible automotive events. Some of our favorites include the Barrett Jackson and Mecum auctions. Just this past weekend, we were set up in Indianapolis at the State Fairgrounds for Mecum Indy.

As is usually the case, there were some pretty nice cars. No shortage of Corvettes or '69 Camaros, if you were in the market. There were deals to be had and we met with some pretty happy buyers.  "Eleanor" from year 2000 "Gone in 60 Seconds" was sold there (it brought a cool million bucks). Check out our previous post: "Eleanor Hero Car Sells at Mecum for $1 Million"

 But one of the most "interesting" offerings was that of a car that, when restored, was amazing ...

It was offered at no reserve on Wednesday and brought only $8,500. I think if I was the owner during the burning, I'd sell it at no reserve too!! For the full story on this car, here is the article from the Mecum magazine.
