Maximum Monterey Part 2: Mecum markets a multitude of mega-exotics from... everywhere else! test 1-1

Now, don't panic. I know the list of Mecum's Ferrari/Maserati apex predators alone won't spend all of your quarter-billion-dollar inheritance from your granduncle Archibald, but I promise you will be able to spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble the greatest collection of modern mega-dollar performance cars as his will requires.

My condolences. I heard about your granduncle Archibald's passing. Not to be rude, but wasn't it odd that a recluse who lived in a decommissioned missile silo in the middle of Nowheresville had a quarter-billion-dollars' worth of gold bullion stockpiled? I mean, it's good for you, as you're his sole heir. What? You get the money only if you spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble one of the greatest collections of mega-dollar performance cars?


B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.]

B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.] test 1-1

While the car you see above looks like every other “Heritage Edition” Ford GT, this one hides a terrible secret: Somebody invested a fortune into cutting its value in half. Yes, you read that right. Someone bought one of the ultra-rare and ultra-desirable Gulf-liveried 2006 Ford GTs and basically destroyed it in the most pathetically-ironic way: They turned it into a “racecar.”

A rolling Moss gathers $2.6M in stones at Bonhams' all-Benz auction test 1-1

Bonhams held its appropriately named “The Mercedes-Benz Sale” at just about the best place on Earth they could have—the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany—on March 19, and it was packed with the swoopy, super-expensive 1930s models that made the brand the luxury powerhouse it is today.

Problem is, none of them sold.

Gooding & Co.'s Amelia Island auction sells seventeen of Seinfeld's finest for $22,244,500 test 1-1

I've never understood the fascination people have with Porsches, and I'm apparently not alone. Hell, the world is filled with idiots that don't even know it's pronounced poor-SHA. (And that's everywhere, every time, jerks. No exceptions.)

2016 Viper ACR - Smiles Abound

2016 Viper ACR - Smiles Abound test 1-1

We won't lie; when a new car like a Viper comes out we are as giddy as a five-year-old on Christmas morning. Full of enthusiasm and exuberance at the idea of not just something novel, but of the potential it might have to be the best… whatever… car it is. But, that's not where the fun ends. In past years, the idea of, say, a new Corvette, would have us grinning for days and that would be it. But then, a new Z06 would come out—Corvette, but even better! Our little hearts could only beat so fast. Then, as with the C6, the ultimate Vette, a ZR-1 shows up and that would be about all we could take.
