Pictures: Mecum Kissimmee 2022 collector car auction

Mecum Kissimmee returns for its annual event with 3,500 collector cars up for auction at Osceola Heritage Park Jan. 6-16. Mecum’s Central Florida event takes place over 11 days and represents the world’s largest collector car auction. While classic Corvettes, Shelbys, Ferraris, Mustangs and Chargers are some of the mainstays of most Mecum auctions, the show also brings in modern supercars, a variety of trucks and old model off-roaders in mint condition. Visitors can pay $200 for the chance to bid ($500 for gold-level perks) or $30 per day to attend as a guest and watch the auction.
