Mecum Auctions is well known for setting records and taking on never-before-achieved challenges, and the company took it to another level this past weekend by holding two auctions simultaneously in two different cities located a full 600 miles apart. One of the events, Mecum Chicago 2022, was held Oct. 13-15 in Schaumburg, Illinois, and brought $15.2 million in total sales, while the other, Mecum Chattanooga 2022, was held Oct. 14-15 at the Chattanooga Convention Center in Tennessee and reached overall sales totals of $21.2 million. In all, the auction house achieved a grand total of $36.4 million in total overall sales for the weekend with 1,052 vehicles sold of the 1,433 offered.

Top sales in Chattanooga were led by two 4-speed convertibles: a 1968 Shelby GT500KR (Lot S125.1) that achieved a $302,500 selling price and a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette (Lot S123) that sold for $220,000. Two modern sport utility vehicles followed in top sales with a 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor (Lot S84.1) with just 32.6 miles selling for $209,000 and a 2020 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG (Lot S282) with a Brabus 800 kit and the AMG Night Package demanding $187,000.
