A few months ago, I was covering the 50th anniversary of the National Street Rod Association’s Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky for Chilton DIY Manuals.
While there, I happened upon a display inside the Kentucky Exposition Center — where the Nationals were held — for Mecum Auctions. The display included a new purple Dodge Challenger with a white floral print top in the hauler.
The display also listed the auctions Mecum planned for the rest of the year, including one for Louisville.
On my birthday weekend, no less.
Come back with me on the back roads of the past to September 20 and 21, 2019, where I experienced the magic of Mecum in person for the first time.
