The Classic Car Revolution Will Be Televised

There are some things that you can watch on TV without volume while you are listening to music, and you have no trouble following what's going on. When you're in this position, you get the best of both worlds.

Back in college, we used to do this with cartoons (you didn't watch cartoons in college?), and, of course, you can also do it with sporting events. With sports, you get to fill your head with music while you follow the game, but you get an added advantage: You don't have to listen to the announcers overstating the obvious at every turn.

I live in Las Vegas, and there is a lot of interest in classic cars in this town. The fact that Count's Kustoms (the shop that is featured on the Counting Cars television show) is in Las Vegas doesn't hurt. At the same time, hot rods and classics of every ilk have always been popular in Vegas.

Over the last several months, I have stumbled into (don't get any ideas, that's a generally used expression) a few bars that have had Mecum Auctions on the tube. Watching a classic car auction without any volume while you are listening to Metallica is definitely the way to go when you're sipping a cold one.

Now that the stage is set, we can move on to the news. Later this month, there is going to be a killer Mecum Auction taking place in Denver, Colorado. The Mile High City is a phenomenal destination in its own right, but when you can get a taste of the Rockies while you are getting your classic car fix, you are in hog heaven.

The auction will take place on the weekend of June 26th. Admission is $25 for adults, and children 12 years of age and younger get in for free.

As always, they are going to have some spectacular classic cars up for bids at the Mecum event in Denver. One of the star attractions is a Matador Red 1957 Fuelie Chevy Bel Air convertible. It is equipped with a Powerglide transmission, and as far as anyone can tell, there are only five of them out there.

This is just one player in a truly star-studded cast. If you can make the show, you won't be sorry, but... it will be televised on NBCSN. So you can crank up the tunes, tip back some beers, and be there in spirit without leaving your easy chair.
