Cars, cars, and more cars!

The Mecum Auto Auction had plenty of eye candy on display at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on May 13-17. Building after building was lined with hot rods, classic cars, and everything in between. Here are a few that caught our eye.

It is rare to see this many REAL Shelby cars in one place. On Saturday, two of the Cobra roadsters were marked 1,300,000 - no sale (reserve not met). On Sunday one of these was marked "SOLD"....

After cruising the many buildings, we watched the end of the car auctions and some of the neon sign auctions before calling it a night.
