If you haven’t been to Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale during Auction Week you are missing out on one hell of a cool spectacle. And when I say spectacle, I mean it. This is part car show, part carnival, part auction, and all bitchin. Plus there is a Ridetech 48-Hour Camaro build going on that we’re thrilled to be helping out on. We’ve never been to any car event like Barrett-Jackson before. They say more than 300,000 people will roll through the gates during the week and there are more than 1700 cars, trucks, and more on site ready to go across the block. Plus there are a TON of vendors here with all kinds of cool stuff. Everything from built cars, boats, neon, automobilia of all kinds, and great food and drinks too.
And this all just scratches the surface. The truth is there is no real way to describe Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale without finishing a sentence saying “you just have to see it.”
And so here are our first two galleries of photos to check out. We’ll have a ton more photos coming over the next 10 days at least because we’ve already taken a dozen galleries worth of photos and it’s only our second day on site.
