The mood at the Indiana State Fairgrounds was upbeat—among participants, spectators, even the auction staff—as Dana Mecum and his crew celebrated 25 years of holding the Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis. During six busy days Mecum moved nearly 3,000 lots through two auction rings. About 70 percent of the cars, memorabilia, and other items changed hands, bringing the sale’s total to $52.6 million.
