, The World’s #1 Muscle Car Brand Invades Mecum Auction Los Angeles
MuscleKingz, the #1 Muscle Car Brand teamed up with Mecum Auctions, the world’s leading collector car, vintage and antique motorcycle auction house, at the inaugural Los Angeles classic and collector car auction at The Fairplex in Pomona last weekend, with host M. Rivers, frontman of the rock band Redlight King in tow.
The massive event generated sales of more than $9.3 million, with a total of 283 vehicles sold over the course of the two-day auction, despite record-setting rainfall across So Cal.
Featuring 6 halls of beautifully restored vintage muscle cars, first time builders and owners, racecar drivers, and long time fabricators shared the same floor to see the best of the best being pushed up to the auction block.
MuscleKingz was given exclusive behind the scene access to the show, and could not have been more stoked to talk all things horsepower with the Pomona, CA gearheads in attendance.
From doing laps around the Dodge Thrill Ride Drift Course, to hanging with race legend Mickey Weise, to scoping out incredible cars and interviewing their owners, host M. Rivers and the MuscleKingz crew caught it all via Livestream for their Facebook and Instagram followers.
M. Rivers says, “The Mecum auction was exciting! There were some truly excellent cars present, as well as some good deals to be had. I had the privilege of interviewing Mickey Weiss a legendary drag racer on an emotional roller coaster ride auctioning his incredible factory Hemi Dart race car. Hearing his car run and learning from Mickey, personally, was the highlight of the weekend for me, as my father was a drag racer and engine builder, it brought back memories of growing up at the track.”
