ATTENTION! Bullitt 559 will cross the auction block on Friday January 10th and NOT Saturday.







Please consider this the designated thread for planning and discussion regarding the "Bullitt" movie hero car sale at the January, 2020, Mecum Auto Auction in Kissimmee, FL.


Lead organizers - Richard Nelson, Kyle Nelson, and Matt (FCMCBULLITT 2)
Additional help - Susan Hurlbut, Bill Hurlbut, John Hannon, Tony Alonso


High-Level Event Schedule

Friday evening dinner
Saturday auction
Sunday cruise

Also looking to hook up with Mecum to have a presence inside the grounds- parking for the Bullitts, a display in the lobby, etc.

We will be in Florida when this event is going on. Let me know the plans and we will re-arrange our schedule to be there. And yes we are planning on bringing the 68 with us!

Just let me know which dates you're going to try and plan the event for. Won't be able to drive either of my Bullitt's since it will have to be a quick fly in/fly out type of weekend.

It might possibly be the second weekend of January, although we won't know for sure probably until sometime in October for sure. That's when the lot numbers for the auction could be assigned, according to a Mecum rep I talked to this past Saturday.

I'm going to try to make it. We have some friends a couple of hours north that we've been wanting to visit, so this would give us another reason to make the trip. I'm sure we'll fly in.

I generally go to Mecum but if I do this year, it'll be a ride up on my FJR1300, not the GT500. Riding in January in FL is the best time of year to ride!

At Somernites, Mecum had a vendor booth next to the BULLITT. We were the first to sign up for the Somernites show special Mecum Kissimmee bidder's pass at half price ($50), which included 1 guest pass. Good for the entire Mecum Kissimmee event. Just have to bring a bank letter of credit. Hmmm...
We will be there!

Quick update - Kyle and Matt are already on it with regards to making arrangements with Mecum directly. There also is a possibility that some sort of registration system will be configured so participants can be tracked. Things are definitely moving ahead.

I live 10 miles from this and am good friends with the people who run the Osceola Heritage Park. Please let me know how I can help? I've been working with the local Ford dealer to maybe have a showing of the movie Bullitt along with a reception sometime close to the auction.

Thank you for your offer of help! At the moment, the lead organizers have some details they are finalizing on the full schedule that will stretch from Thursday evening until Sunday afternoon. What day were you considering for the movie & reception?

Copying from Tim's thread in the Florida section - this is preliminary information!


Tim ,

Please pass this info to all.

We are currently in contact with Mecum to see if we can get preferred parking and admission to the auction.

This has not yet been solidified .

The following is how one can get a free bidders pass to the event:

Mecum is a national sponsor of the Mustang Club of America.

Membership in MCA allows you to get one bidder pass and one guest pass for the entire event- 10 days, JAN 2 to 12.

The Mecum admission deal through MCA is free.

But you must be a member of MCA and go through a sign –up process on the MCA website.

Membership in MCA is cheap- you can be an on-line / digital member for $35.00

A bidder pass purchased through the Mecum website is $100 – so the MCA deal is a good one.

Also there is a parking fee each day. [ Multi days might be available]

HOEWEVER,

If you are a Bullitthead and plan on attending with our group …..WAIT …..until Paul Rocha talks to the rep from Mecum.

We are trying to get FREE admission passes and preferred parking for our Bullitt owners group.

Soon we will know if Mecum will grant that.

I’ll keep Tom informed as we proceed on that and other activities in the planning stages.

Anyone with specific questions can call me.

This is going to be the ULTIMATE BULLITT HOONDOG EVENT!
ROADTRIP!!!
Susan and I will be there. Already a registered bidder, selling everything, might raise enough for a paint fleck.

Pinnacle- Brad in 559. Just imagine...
