It’s that most wonderful time of the year in Scottsdale, Arizona for car enthusiast. With three major collector auto auctions taking place, there is something for every motor head. Barrett-Jackson is the largest of the three and includes a large array of cars, trucks, utility vehicles, celebrity owned cars and yes, even airplanes. The event has grown over the years from a 3 day event to a 9 day car auction marathon. Don’t be fooled by all the exhaust fumes and testosterone in the tent. You can find some fantastic shopping in the lifestyle pavilion as well. Of course the people watching and celebrity sightings are worth the price of admission.
If you are more of a muscle car enthusiast, then you should definitely check out the Russo and Steele Auction. It is a smaller venue. So if you do not like large crowds and still would love to see some fabulous cars, Russo and Steele is the place to go.
Perhaps you are more interested in rare classics and exotics? Then head down to Scottsdale Fashion Square to the Gooding and Company Auction. Guys, if your wife or girlfriend is not into cars, this is a win-win. You check out the cars while she shops at the mall. At the end of the day the two of you can enjoy a relaxing dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in Old Town.
