Dana Mecum’s name is being changed to “Indiana Mecum” because like “Indiana Jones” he has a way of finding treasures, Corvette treasures, and offering them for sale at his vaunted Indianapolis Spring Auction, May 14th through May 19th. This year “Indiana Mecum” will auction over 2,000 collector cars and motorcycles during his six day extravaganza.
Vettes for Vets is an annual, all-Corvette car show organized to honor the hard work and dedication military veterans have committed to our country.
