By now most of the hot rodding world has heard that the “Golden Sahara II” along with the rest of Jim Skonzakes’ collection (including the famed “Kookie Kar” T-bucket) are up for grabs at Mecum’s Indy auction, which runs May 15-20. Now there’s an opportunity to be among the first to see the Golden Sahara at a private unveiling this Monday, May 14th.
The party kicks off at 5 p.m. at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and it’s exclusively for pre-registered bidders and Mecum Gold Members. If you’re planning to bid and haven’t already pre-registered, you can click here to do so now and you’ll receive full details about the unveiling. And for those who can’t make it, we’ll be broadcasting live from the party via social media, so stay tuned to our Instagram and Facebook pages.
The Original Spring Classic Auction kicks off Tuesday, May 15 and runs through Sunday, May 20, with the Golden Sahara and Kookie Kar crossing the block on Saturday. In addition to those two icons, there are some other great hot rods and customs available. You can see the full catalog here, and if you won’t be in Indy you can watch the action live on the NBC Sports network.
