Mecum Kissimmee was an auction for the record books, as a top array of rare muscle cars were assembled for its kick-off event in 2016. Stats like 1 of 9, 1 of 5, and even 1 of 1 were heard again and again throughout this 10-day extravaganza. Any one of these hundreds of muscle cars, in the field of 3000 vehicles, could have been a headliner at most auctions. But, here at Mecum, there were literally hundreds of them, gathered together for a spectacularly grand muscle car reunion. The number of star cars were staggering, as can be seen by this list of "big hitters."
