I was one lucky bunny this weekend – Mimi’s Dad bought the three of us tickets to the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction! We spent the day checkin’ out fast cars, people watching, and basking in the sun. This auction was established in 1971, and is headquartered right here in my hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s held every January at Westworld, and takes place over nine days. I saw more than 1,000 collector automobiles, and almost 350 different vendors. We had a lot of fun – check it out!
Look at em' all!
They had slow ones ...
... and fast ones! A 1970 Mustang Custom Fastback - this little pony sold for 82k!
The thickest, fattest whitewalls I've ever seen.
A little more my speed...
... and a little more my size!
Who is THAT good lookin' guy?
The Yellow Submarine! Do you think the Beatles really fit in there ? ?
Not totally sure what this was - but Mimi's Dad (my Grandpa) said it was REALLY fast.
On the bidding floor.
Mimi said this was her favorite car at the whole show - a 62' Cadillac... she would have preferred a 59', but this would do.
I got to meet General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard! He's a 69' Dodge Charger, and was real feisty!
The colors were all so pretty.
Check this baby out. A 1954 Mercedes Gullwing - sold for 2.2 million!
Until next time, Westworld... I'll be back in a few weeks for the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. See ya real soon!
