HOUSTON — Air Force One detailer Michael Pena of Mobile Auto Detailing recently commemorated his first anniversary traveling with Mecum Auctions at the 2015 Mecum Auction April 9-11, according to a press release.
Pena was invited last spring to join the team, noted the release. He began his tour at the show in 2014.
The 2015 show featured 1,000 cars, stated the release. He teamed up with peers from the Detail Mafia for other shows around the U.S., including the 2,000-vehicle Mecum Show in Orlando, Florida.
“Mecum is the largest live auction in the country for collector cars, classics, corvettes, hot rods, street rods and muscle cars,” said Pena in the release. “The inventory ranges from classic Ferraris to high-dollar 45-foot RVs.”
Pena enlisted the help of Bob Taylor of Accurate Detailing, Terrance Morton of Knoxville’s Auto Day Spa, Doug Parfitt of Eye for Detail, Mark Elliott of Firehouse Auto Spa, Steven Miller of The Diamond Detailers and Darryl Kimmis of Mirror Image, reported the release.
“Most of the vehicles they buy need detailing in order to get the highest price at auction,” shared Pena in the release. “I was honored to be asked to detail at this caliber, and felt blessed when they asked me to travel with them to every auction — more than 20 shows across the country. My hectic schedule made it impossible to handle all twenty-plus shows, and still service my own clients in Houston, but fortunately, that is what our Detail Mafia is all about.”
