Mecum Auctions held their inaugural Houston sale on April 13-14, 2012 at the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas, resulting in total sales exceeding $18.5 million and an 80% sell-through rate. Mecum offered more than 700 vehicles during the two-day auction, with more than 12,000 attendees taking part in the weekend event.

Dana Mecum, President and CEO of Mecum Auctions commented, “There has always been a perception that no collector car auction company has ever been able to have a successful auction in Houston. I am happy to report that Mecum certainly made it happen in Houston. We received a warm Texas welcome from the moment our crew set foot on the grounds until the final fall of the gavel at The Reliant Center. We certainly look forward to coming back to Houston in 2013.”

Typical to nearly all Mecum sales, muscle cars and Corvettes were well represented, however the top two sales of the Mecum Houston 2012 auction were a 2010 Ferrari California Spyder at $177,500 and a 1931 Cadillac V12 Roadster that brought $165,000.
