Ever wonder what a party with 20,000 or so of your closest car guy friends would feel like? Well, I can tell you it would probably feel a lot like the Barrett Jackson auction in Palm Beach, FL. Want a non-collectable driver just for cruise nights? They’ve got ‘em. Want a concours quality ride? You’ll find that here as well. Automobilia ranging from signs to gas pumps? Check. Test drives of the latest from Ford and GM? Check. Free booze and umbrella girls? Um, no, but you can’t have everything.
Prices have been fairly modest so far, with day one ringing up a net of 125 cars sold for a total of $2.7 million. The good stuff will hit today and tomorrow, so I promise I’ll get pics up as soon as possible. In the mean time, here are a few teaser pics just to give you a feel for the auction.
