Nobody sells more than Mecum. Nobody. The Mecum Auction Company is the world leader of collector car, vintage and antique motorcycle, and Road Art sales, hosting auctions throughout the United States. The company has been specializing in the sale of collector cars for 27 years, now offering more than 15,000 vehicles per year and averaging more than one auction each month.
“We’ve come a long way from our first official auction at the Rockford Airport in 1988,” notes President Dana Mecum. “We’re really a family business that grew up and got big. Our goal has always been to give Mecum Auction attendees an amazing experience and unite them with an incredible car they will enjoy.”
What started in 1988 with little more than a few helpers around the family dining room table has grown to more than 200-strong when on-site at an event today. The company maintains its close-knit family atmosphere with many team members who have been onboard since Mecum’s inception; even Dana’s wife Patti and their four sons all play integral roles in the business.
Mecum Auctions is now headquartered in Walworth, Wis., and since 2011 has been ranked No. 1 in the world with number of collector cars offered at auction, No. 1 in the world with number of collector cars sold at auction, No. 1 in the U.S. with number of auction venues, No. 1 in the U.S. in total dollar volume of sales, and is host to the world’s largest collector car auction held annually in Kissimmee, Fla.
