DELAWARE, Ohio (May 14) — Dana Mecum’s 22nd annual Original Spring Classic Auction, which is taking place through Sunday at the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, will feature four very special cars from drag racing champion Mike Coughlin’s personal collection.

Coughlin, the 2007 Top Sportsman drag racing champion, got serious about his collection of muscle cars in 2003, mainly due to his affinity for the movies Smokey and the Bandit and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

His first car going on the auction block Friday as Lot #F88 will be a black 1980 Z28 Chevrolet Camaro four-speed with just 40 actual miles on the odometer. The car literally looks as though it’s been in a time capsule and still has the original factory stickers on the driver’s window.

A few cars later, representing Lot #F99, is Coughlin’s unique Lucerne Blue 1971 Pontiac Trans Am Coupe with a 455 CI HO and automatic transmission.

On Saturday, Lot #S41, is a beautiful 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 Coupe 350/360 HP four-speed with just 32,000 original miles. The car’s primary color is copper and it features the distinctive white racing stripes down the hood.

Finally, Coughlin is prepared to part with his Nassau Blue 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 427/390 HP four-speed beauty with a blue and white interior. The car, represented by Lot #S178, will be a part of the televised portion of the auction, and should air around 5:50 p.m. ET live on HD Theater, a Discovery Network.
