Barrett-Jackson or Mecum?

Although I awoke this morning without a fever for the first time since before receiving the Shingrix vaccine last Saturday, I still don’t feel well. I am very weak and fatigued.

Anyway…NBCSN televises the Mecum auctions, both live and in reruns. Since Mecum holds 10+ auctions a year, it is easy to find one being televised, assuming one has NBCSN on their TV package.

Velocity televises the Barrett-Jackson auctions. Barrett-Jackson only has four auctions a year and Velocity does not show reruns very often.

My wonderful wife and I have attended auctions from both companies. In person, the Barrett-Jackson experience was superior, in our opinion. There was more excitement in the crowd and the pace kept the action moving.

On TV, however, I prefer watching the Mecum auctions. The hosts are knowledgeable, don’t take themselves or the auction too seriously and seem to be having a good time. The Mecum telecasts are fun to watch.

In my opinion, the Barrett-Jackson telecasts are stuffier and the hosts don’t seem to be having as much fun. Despite the presence of the amazingly beautiful Cristy Lee (who isn’t on-screen very much), the telecasts often display a lack of energy.

Of course, all of this is just my opinion. Do any of you watch car auctions on TV? If so, what are your thoughts?

You can figure out what this article is about. The writer, of course, had to insert the obligatory “while we still love manuals.” Manual transmissions are like dodos; they’re going extinct. However, because so many have been made their road to extinction will be slow.
