Barrett Jackson Automotive Auction

By on January 4, 2005

Speaking of vehicular insanity, my cube-mate was browsing through Barrett-Jackson’s listing of 888 drool-worthy machines, all going on the auction block this month. Barrett-Jackson is one of the nation’s biggest automotive auction houses, specializiing in collectible iron. I’m told their auction is a regular feature on SpeedTV. Piles of hi-res photos of the cars are available.

My favorite? Hard to pick, but the 1965 Shelby Cobra Roadster and the 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Concept Car are right up there. Honorable mention goes to the 1955 Messerschmitt KR-200 2 Door Bubble Top. (ok, so I would’t be caught dead driving that one, but it sure is cute!)

  1. I am the curator of the museum. I hope everyone realizes how historical this vehicle is and will become as we develop our collection for show to the public once the museum is completed.

  2. …….What ever happened to the 65 Impala that was to be aunctioned from kcclassic I never saw it on the show. It supposedly had a 409 in it.
