Mecum's Collector-Car Auction In Portland Achieves $7.9 Million By: Mecum Auctions Second-annual event topped by the sale of a 1968 Yenko Camaro
WALWORTH, Wis. – June 21, 2017 – Mecum Auctions was in Portland this past weekend with an impressive lineup of 461 classic and collector cars. The two-day auction at the Portland Expo Center achieved $7.9 million in overall sales totals topped by a 1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro (Lot S125) that brought $395,000.

Plymouths and Chevrolets dominated the top 10, but a beautiful Hemi-equipped Desoto Fireflite convertible (Lot S134) also made the list coming in at $68,000.
