The Mecum auction in Kissimmee is upon us again, and every year there is a diverse assortment of cars waiting to cross the auction block.

When Colin Comer was a teenager, his job was to restore cars ranging from classic competition Ferraris to pure American muscle. From here, Comer started his own restoration business operating out of a two-car garage. From what started as humble beginnings expanded into working for well-known car collectors. Not only did he restore cars down to the smallest detail, but he was trusted in assisting with builds from some of the world's top collections.
