Mecum Auctions heads back to Texas this month for its 10th anniversary Houston collector car auction, taking place at the NRG Center on April 8-10 with 1,000 collector cars, trucks and a few motorcycles expected, many of them offered at no reserve.

Mecum’s last trip to Houston was in December, when sales resulted in a total of $14.7 million.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is essentially a brand-new car with next-to-no miles

Among the star vehicles offered without reserves by Mecum for 2021 are a pair of low-mileage examples of Dodge modern performance, a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with a mere 3 miles on its odometer and a 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Yellow Fever Edition pickup truck that has been driven just 2,555 miles.

Vintage no-reserve vehicles include a 1966 Plymouth Belvedere hardtop boasting a comprehensive frame-off restoration, as well as a restored 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop in turquoise and white.  Also among the star offerings is a 1953 Buick Skylark convertible, an icon of early ‘50s design with just 1,690 produced.
