It’s Car Auction Season – Barrett Jackson Car Show – Westworld of Scottsdale‎

I love this time of year here in Arizona.  Not just because you can work on your classic/muscle car in the garage without feeling like a Christmas turkey in the oven.  I love this time of year because it’s Car Auction Season!   For the next 3-4 weeks classic cars (and others) are bountiful between Tucson, AZ and Phoenix, AZ.

With Barrett Jackson Car Auction kicking off this week and RM, Russo and Steel auctions following up, beautiful cars are brought out in to the cool winter sunlight and driven or set on display.  Now, I’m not just talking about at the auctions themselves.  But I’m talking about the little known phenomenon that occurs in and around the area.

We have a tradition were we will spend some time driving round Scottsdale and Fountain Hills and other little sections of the greater Phoenix area and looking for the displays of cool classic, muscle, antique cars.  The owners have push these beauties out of their warm protective garages, out into the cool winter air.  Everywhere you drive,  sitting next to the curbs or at the edge of the driveways are some of the most prized, collectible and unique cars south of Payson, AZ.

Some of these are for sale, owners hope to catch the eye of disappointed bidder on his way home or get noticed a buyer that doesn’t really want to ponying up baskets full of old presidents to just participate in the auctions, but still suffering from the ‘classic/muscle/antique car flu that is epidemic this time of year.  Others just what to show off their well-loved works of metal art and have a discussion about it with passer-byes.

It is a great time!   We’ll be head there to spend couple days attending the events at Barrett Jackson and we’ll take the time to drive around the area and  I’ll grab a few shots of the local car eye candy and post them up.  If you are headed up drop me a note, I’ve met a few readers at such events, that’s always cool.

BTW  – Don’t forget some of the best view is in the parking lot at the these events – snap some shots and post them up on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/AGCarRestoration .

See you here.
