Mecum Spring Auction at Indy
At the Mecum Spring Auction at Indy the action got pretty intense as the big-time cars came up to the block. The biggest sale of the 27th Annual Mecum Spring Classic this weekend happened when a 1963 Shelby Cobra 289 sold for a whopping $885,000. The auction hall was packed with buyers and the bidding created the most intense feeling of anticipation for a crowd that was on the edge of its chair as the hammer came down.
