"Once again the Mecum Daytime Auction on the Monterey Peninsula has been a resounding success with  more than 700 cars crossing the auction block," said Dana Mecum, President, Mecum Auctions. "Thousands of bidders and spectators turned out for the event. We are confident that our 2012 showing has been the best yet with a sell-through rate of 63 percent with $31 million in sales."

Collins could have chosen any of the popular muscle cars, sports cars, or hot rods that crossed the auction block in Monterey. But, in fact, Collins has always had a passion for the last-generation Scout 4x4.

On winning the bid on his 'dream car,' Collins said, "This is a dream come true for me. Never could I have imagined that one day I would actually own a 1977 International Scout 4x4. Wayne asked me to 'go with my gut' and I did and won. Even better, who knew I would get the opportunity to experience the Mecum Auto Auction with my son? I am so grateful!" Reliable Carriers will be transporting the car to his Texas home.
