An annual event that club members of West Coast Challengers always look forward to is the Mecum Auctions in Anaheim, California. Mecum has always provided our club members with complementary tickets for the event as we have many classic car collectors in the club. Club members always enjoy attending this event and being able to both view and bid on some great car up for auctions.

As usual, club members met up around the corner from the Anaheim Convention Center where the auction is set to take place. After chatting and visiting with each for a while, we caravaned over to the auction where our complimentary tickets were picked up and passed out to the club members.

The connecting halls of the auction contain even more cars up for auction that club members inspected, looked over and often spoke with the owners about their cars up for auction.

Mecum Auctions is known for its muscle car inventory, and there is never any shortage of them being auctioned off. Club members always enjoy reminiscing and sharing stories about certain muscle cars that had an impact in their lives.

The club had a great time attending the event but sadly, this would be the last Mecum Auctions in Anaheim as the event is moving to Pomona next year. In addition, so many other car clubs read our stories about the event, that they too began asking fir complimentary tickets causing many request to be declined. Mecum is currently discussing instituting a special club interest section, where car clubs may complete a form and receive discount tickets rather than the free complimentary tickets that we have enjoyed through the years.

A special thank you to Mecum Auctions for the complimentary tickets and allowing the club to once again participate in the auction. We look forward to seeing Mecum Auctions in Pomona and other areas int he upcoming years.
