John Kraman, Mecum Auctions

Recently, Mecum Auctions is setting all kinds of records. The Kissimmee auction had the highest sales ever for any auction house with $217 million. Motortrend TV earns the largest TV audience for covering an auction. They held the largest vintage motorcycle auction with over 1,750 sold.

John is in the thick of things. He is the voice, historian and analyst for Mecum. He has participated in hundreds of auctions and collections.

We reached out to John because we have been noticing that automotive market has shifted towards higher prices, street rods are making a comeback and the buyers appear to be younger.

If you have a vehicle and are curious about it’s worth and what are the future trends might be – then tune in this Saturday morning at 9 am on the FonzFM.
