Coverage begins at noon ET on Thanksgiving Day with highlights from Mecum’s 2014 Houston auction, which includes the 1964 Ford GT40 Prototype that was purchased by Utah Jazz CEO Greg Miller for more than $7 million, followed by Mecum Dealmakers: Houston at 2:30 p.m. ET. Mecum Auctions: Kansas City will air at 3:30 p.m. ET, followed by an encore of Mecum Dealmakers: Kansas City at 5:30 p.m. ET.
