    I've got a friend who is trying to get my to go with him in two weeks. Never done an auction before, But I'll be looking at C3 Corvettes and second gen Camaros. I just dont want to travel all the way down there and hit my personal max on every car I look at.

    I personally don't care too much about originality on the car as long as it has good running gear and a well put together package. Hell if it pushed other buyers away i'm all for non matching parts :)

    The first weekend are always bargains at kissimee. See what's going first and you can get great deals there. Dress warm, always seems to be cold that weekend.

    Yeah, 32° would be nice. You know there's an auction in Harrisburg August 2nd -4th, right? We go every year. Usually a couple 2nd gens there. That's only a couple hour trip by car. They haven't put up a consignment list yet, but I watch and will let you know if you're interested.

    That would certainly be a lot easier to get the car back up here. So theoretically When I win this car it needs to be paid for and removed from Mecum that day correct? does everyone bring trailers, or do you drive the thing out of there? It might take me two months to get down there to pick it up with a trailer

    You get until a specific date to get them out. Its not the day you buy but sometime after the entire auction is over. We have driven ours out everytime.

    Like Scott said, not a lot of appeal on this car for me. A correct 1978 Z28 is super cool in appearance. It didn't have rear fender flares, front spoiler nor did it have 79-81 design stripes. The 78 like the 77 is unique. I don't know what the deal is with the blue-ish seat belts with red interior and the pink rear panels.... I like the black paint, but I don't see it worth more then $8-$10K, but its an auction and many people are unaware of details like this and bid away. Realistically some unsuspecting buyer is going to pay $12-$15K for this gem. I would pay $15K all day long for a correct, show 1978 Z28
