If you happen to be near Connecticut this weekend, you should definitely check out the bidding frenzy at this year's Barrett-Jackson auction. Mohegan Sun is the perfect setting, as their casino, hotel and spa are world-class. For the last 47 years, enthusiasts from all over the world have flocked to Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions. Widely regarded as a barometer of the collector car industry, the auctions have evolved over the years into world-class automotive lifestyle events where hundreds of the world's most sought-after, unique and valuable automobiles cross the block in front of a global audience - in person and on live national and international television.
Last year we were outside in the staging lanes because their new exhibit hall was under construction. This year we are thankfully inside, and our clients are with us. First in was AirStream with their latest Interstate. Utilizing the latest in Mercedes-Benz technology, they arrive loaded with every luxury imaginable. Our 3-wheeled friend from Utah are Vanderhall Motor Works. They built light and comfortable roadsters on their patented front wheel drive chassis. The inboard suspension allows for incredible grip and a smooth ride. The Acura NSX is a powerful hybrid V6 that competes with cars several times its price. If you would like to help families in need, Ronald McDonald House Charities are selling raffle tickets for a pristine Callaway Supercharged Corvette Z06. Not just any Callaway would do so, this one is also the Carbon 65th Anniversary Edition. And what would we be without a Ferrari 488? If you can't make it to the show, be sure to watch live coverage on Velocity and Discovery channel, and Barrett-Jackson also has two streams on their homepage.
