If you’re a motor head of any kind, you owe it to yourself to make the pilgrimage to a Barrett-Jackson auction. Part auto auction, part theater, part state fair, there truly is something for everyone, including some outstanding bargains to be had on classic cars. Whether you’re in the market for an unrestored bargain or a concours winning classic, you’ll find it at Barrett-Jackson; their online auction catalog (with lot descriptions and post-auction pricing) is a great source of information. Want to track how 1967 Pontiac GTO’s have increased in price? The Barrett-Jackson catalog from past auctions is a good starting point.

I saw some truly impressive sheetmetal cross the block this weekend, and the amount of money spent ($8.8 million in the first two days of the show) bodes well for the economy. It’s a good time to be a buyer, as a lot of collections are paring down their cars to fund operational expenses or new acquisitions. As with real estate, quality cars are still selling at respectable prices, though the market seems to have decreased quite a bit from its pre-crash peak.

In no particular order, here are some of the cars and the prices they sold at this weekend:

    Hey, any idea what the 2011 Shelby GT350 ( http://www.ridelust.com/ridelust-is-off-to-barrett-jackson-palm-beach/ ) went for?

  2. Kurt says:

    Dave, the Shelby GT350 went for $137,500. Quite a bargain, compared to the Corvette Z06 Carbon.

  3. Dave says:

    Thanks Kurt!

    “Next year…”

    I’ll still be reading about a bunch of sweet Rides that I Lust for (like what I did there?) but can’t afford.
