Barret Jackson Car Auction

Has anyone watched this show/auction. Its a car auction that is on for 40 hrs live. It takes place in Scottsdale Arizona.

I love watching it every year. Its on the speed channel(on right now.) I love doing the fantasy bidding, i dont know much about cars but its still fun.

I want to go there sometime so badly. I love auctions and I just think this one is really neat.


Anyone watch it?

I'm watching it now. I would watch the whole thing, but my roommate isn't much of a car guy so it drives him nuts.

Oh crap, thanks for reminding me.

My dad went to it last year. He said it was pretty cool, but it sucked if your not a bidder. You had to see in the bleachers in the far back. He said for the most part he just walked around, unfortunately he forgot to bring his digi camera.

Wow, lots of great buys this year. Von Dutch's bus for only $40,000; 454 Chevelles for less than 75,000......then there is some that make me scratch my head. $285,000 for a De Soto? Yikes.

I can't wait to see what that Super Snake goes for, Shelbys have been real hot so far.

I've been watching it with my dad, everytime he sees it, he starts talking about how he's going to finish restoring the cars we have (70 something El Camino, 82 Transam). He's normally just talking dreams, but today he showed me where he as about 6 k stored in his room, in 20 dollar bills , so he may be serious about it this time.

random thread hijack: I really hope he does it, because my dad doesn't have very many friends and doesn't do much in his spare time, so this will give him something to do, an opportunity to meet new people, etc.

Yeah Dooms there have been some amazing deals. Also the Shelbys have been real real hot this year. I think its kind of cool seeing the double cars thing. They auction to cars together.

Do you do the fantasy bids. I do them everyone ones in awhile. Im always horribly off but its still fun.

Yea, I've been doing it on and off. I've been pretty close with most of them. One went for $65,000 and I guessed it spot on, but I wasn't fast enough.

Are you talking about that pontiac, it was the other day and i guess 67,000. If you guess right on you get like a car cleaning kit or something. They must be giving away tons of car cleaning kits.

I bid $600,000 on that 1955 KURTIS 500 SX ROADSTER, lets see how I do.


I really want to see what that '07 GT #001 and Super Snake go for.


$775,000 for the Kurtis. My bid wasn't too bad considering I didn't have any previous numbers to go with.

Here is a neat little fact for you about Allards. Both Carrol Shelby and Steve McQueen owned Allard K2's. Shelby raced his in 1953, before that he raced was an MG TC (which was his start in racing).

Well, the Shelby GT (#1 and #2 together) went for $600,000 and the Super Snake went for $5,000,000. Boy do I wish I owned those cars.

Hey, I just guest 250,000 on that Lincoln Zephyr. Does everyone who guessed right get a car care kit, or just the guy who got his bid in first?

Never mind, it's just the first guy. I can't believe I got it right and my name isn't even on the board.
