Mecum Expands St. Paul Auction

The annual Mecum St. Paul Auction has been expanded to two days and will feature 400 collector cars up for bid on June 18-19, 2010, at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Held in conjunction with the Minnesota Street Rod Association’s 37th annual “Back to the ‘50s” rod and custom show, Mecum’s St. Paul Auction has relocated within the fairgrounds to the Cattle Building to allow more enthusiasts to watch and bid on cars crossing the block.

“We are excited to offer bidders nearly twice as many classic cars, muscle cars and street rods at this year’s event compared to the 2009 auction,” said President Dana Mecum. “Combining our auction with the Back to the ‘50s event creates a fun-filled atmosphere with nearly 12,000 street rods, customs and classics on display as well as vendors, arts and crafts, a swap meet and entertainment.”

Car collectors and spectators are welcome to attend the Back to the ‘50s event, with tickets available at the door for $10. There is no additional admission charge to attend the Mecum Auction. Gates will open daily at 8 AM. For more information, visit

The Mecum Auction Company has been specializing in the sale of collector cars for 22 years, now offering more than 5,000 collector cars per year. Consignment, bidder and event information is available online at or by calling 815.568.8888.
