Mecum posted this photo just before the hammer fell at the $3,500,000.00 bid.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

It has been cool to be involved and it was a massive team effort, the likes of which nobody will have a grasp on outside of those who put the work in.

I, for one, am glad the car did what it deserved to do!

Kind regards,
Vern

Who can id the guys standing behind the R in that photo? The car really sounded good and woke everybody up when it fired up. Much  smaller amount of people in that room compared to last year SJ sale.  At least u could see the whole cars all the time on stage compared to the Mecum bullett sale. All of Johns collection did well especially the memorabilia.
