    Headed back to Mecum Dallas 2019

    We're headed back to Mecum in Dallas next month. Got a few cars on the list to check out. Last time we did this, we bought one that wasn't even on my radar before the auction.

    Here's what we're taking a look at.

    1970 Buick GS Stage 1, 455 4 speed. Probably way over our budget but I've always liked these.


    1969 GTO Judge 455 4 speed. 455 so it's not original but that might help keep the price low.


    1969 GTO Judge 400 Ram Air 3 auto. Wish this was a 4 speed.


    1969 COPO Camaro replica 427 4 speed. This is my favorite. I hope it looks this good in person.


    1969 Camaro SS 502 5 speed. I like this one a lot.


    1970 SS 396 4 speed. Love the colors on this one.

    What color is the interior on the GS? I'd probably lean towards that one based on the others you posted.

    Black. From the pics, it looks really fucking nice. I just think it will be out of our price range.

    If the last few weekends of Mecum is any measurement, the average prices have cooled quite a bit for muscle era cars. Especially 50s and earlier.

    And of that list, I would also shoot for the GS.

    The orange GTO looks like the stance is funky from that angle.

    Must be a recent cooling off then. I was at Kissimmee in January and prices were insane.

    It's Henry Lewis, I believe the former Chevrolet dealer from Canton. Not surprised that he has those.

    Was also at Kissimmee and agree with that.

    Also my buddy had his dodge collection in the Mecum in TN early Aug and those prices didn't seem "cooled off" either IMO.

    Even if it doesn't have a 427, which OP's post isn't clear. Don't know if it's a COPO clone with a 427, or a COPO clone with a 350 or 302. Doesn't matter, I'd still pick it

    Auction says it's a 427/425hp. That doesn't mean it really is though.

    If it has the 427 that is period correct, even though not original to the car, I would be all over it.

    yup. He has battled some cancer ect and has sold the dealership. Basically clearing house. The 2 hummers were his sons who died in a car wreck several years ago. He was the largest corvette dealer in the south for many years.

    When did prices on 1st Gen Corvettes come down? I remember a few years ago people were selling literal piles of car parts, a body and frame that needed TOTAL Reno for like 50gs.

    Right after people were selling pile of shit cars like 5 years ago. Frame? More like 100k to restore one of those since the glass usually looks like shit after 60 years.

It's got the perfect balance between chill cruiser, badass gangster, and old hotrod look. I'd rock the fuck out of one.

    I have wanted a Scout for years and pretty much forgot about it until that show Animal Kingdom came around. Now I want one bad again. I'm almost glad they don't have any listed
