THE ELUSIVE SCORE I just finished reading Terry McGean’s latest column in HMM (“Seeking the Score,” HMM #214) and it reminded me of the week before Thanksgiving 2019. I saw a 1987›Buick Grand National on Craigslist that was about 15 miles from where I live. I had to check it out, so I called the original owner, John (in his 70s), but he told me someone was coming to look at it. We talked for five minutes as he told me it was an all-original T-top car with 76,000 miles, and that the Buick had been in the barn for at least 15 years. Then I asked him if the price was in fact $1,500. He said yes, but maybe he should have asked more. The car was rust-free and ran…

the ultimate home garage starts with the ultimate car cover

An essential element of owning collector cars is owning the space they live in when they’re not being used. Your garage says as much about you as the classics you own – after all, they’ll spend most of their lives in it. From the tools you use, to the lighting you install and every wall poster and shop stool in between, your home garage should be as functional as it is enjoyable. Just like your cars. Covercraft has been helping collectors design their own personal Garage-Mahals for nearly six decades, by starting with the ultimate indoor car cover. We’re enthusiasts, too, so we’ve developed the materials, fitment, styles, protective coatings and accessories that you’d design into a cover if you had our jobs. With so many choices to make when finding the…

owner’s view

I’m a fairly private guy, so I don’t take my ’69 Super Bee, ’68 Dart GTS, or ’69 Dart GT Sport to shows too often. I prefer to go into the garage and tinker with them, clean them, and then drive them. They are my hobby and my passion. It’s a disease, but at least it’s a good one to have. I’m so glad I was able to buy this Charger when I had the opportunity, and now after all these years, Super Car Restoration has brought it back to its original glory. To me, muscle cars are mobile art, and I just enjoy owning them.…

mecum auctions, glendale, arizona

IT WAS A WEIRD SPRING IN Scottsdale for auction goers. With the bulk of the events pushing back from their traditional January sale dates into the springtime, suddenly Mecum — celebrating its third-annual March event in nearby Glendale, at State Farm Stadium — went from “Two months after everyone else? Are there any cars left?” to being the first of the multiday auctions in the region. It’s a lot like Arizona refusing to bend to the will of Daylight Savings time: By being the only entity not to change, it completely changes the landscape. Suddenly, the last event of the season had become the first. It seemed to work. Over three days, Mecum took in $42.3 million overall. That’s 14 percent better than its debut Glendale auction, in 2019, and nearly…
