Mecum has an auction with 3000 cars next week. Might actually start this weekend. I went to a show at old town once. Is the NCRS show soon?

Yes, The Florida Chapter of NCRS sponsors their Winter Regional next weekend, Jan 24-27th at Old Town;  includes a judged NCRS regional show, and lots of parts in the swap meet;  It's the best of the NCRS shows re their swap meet (mostly Corvette parts).. and the prime reason I attend when I can.

http://www.ncrsfl.org/Events/35th%20Regional/sched2013.pdf

I checked the Mecum site online.  It doesn't appear the Auction is a 'part' of the NCRS event, but typically an Auction occurs during the same time since there so many people there from everywhere!  The Mecum auction begins 18 and runs thru the 27th.. separate event, but in the same locale..  :)

Mecum has an auction with 3000 cars next week.

With 3000 cars over ten days, it'll be interesting to see if they run out of bidders before they run out of cars.

I think running out of bidders might be a problem. The auction is on the east side of town at a place that resembles a fairgrounds. Nice facilities but the better hotels are on the west side closer to Disney. Old town is a good place for a show. Almost across from Disney.

Anyone else feel like Mecum is more Muscle/Pony car and Barrett Jackson is more Corvette and Fins?

I thought that they were only this weekend and I was out of town in Jacksonville on business. Now that I know that they are going to be going next weekend too I may be there.
