Mecum Auctions, 2020 Mini Cooper SE

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Acura’s redesigned-for 2021 TLX midsize sedan. Next, we talk about Mini’s newest foray into pure-electric vehicles: the 2020 Mini Cooper SE. John Kraman, Lead TV Commentator/Analyst for Mecum Auctions, calls in to give us the scoop on Mecum’s upcoming events, trends in the collector-vehicle market, and how Mecum is adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tom has a Jaguar-themed quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a gallery of Mercury Cougar Bostonian Editions.
