Driven: Infiniti Q60S Coupe Limited

Infiniti’s Q60 has been with us for quite awhile, back even before the Nissan luxury brand decided a couple of years ago to preface the names of all its cars and SUVs with the letter Q. Though it’s never been entirely clear to me what Q has to do with Infiniti, that’s how the marketing […]

What I would like to take home from the RM auction

What I would like to take home from the RM auction

RM’s Arizona auction always has such a wide range of great cars: classics, cruisers, sports cars, muscle cars and, in recent years, Ferraris, lots of Ferraris. They all look great parked around the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, although the most-pricey numbers were nestled on the rug in the ballroom. So much […]

Window shopping with Nicole at Silver Auctions

Window shopping with Nicole at Silver Auctions

Going to the preview for the Silver Auction felt as relaxed as an average night at the Pavs or any local cruise-in. Owners were near their cars and happy to answer any questions, such as telling me the history of the vehicle. There also was a great mix of modern and classic imports, and domestics […]

What caught my eye at Silver Auctions

Three times each year, Mitch Silver and his merry band travel from Spokane, Washington, to Fountain Hills, Arizona, to stage an auction of classic cars for an audience that are happy to have a car that might not win any trophies at a fancy concours d’elegance, but would be a lot of fun to drive […]

What I’d like to take home from Gooding

What I’d like to take home from Gooding

Let’s pretend that money is no object. That’s what I did as I strolled around Gooding & Company’s upscale auction in Scottsdale picking out my favorite classic cars, the ones I’d like to take home. I didn’t worry about being able to afford them, just whether they caught my eye. And boy did they ever. […]

Window shopping with Nicole at Russo and Steele

I didn’t really know what to expect Wednesday at Russo and Steele, but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of muscle cars available at the auction. Among the high-powered classic monsters were modern cars, and nearly everything had been modified from stock. Blame it on being a young enthusiast or a race car driver, […]

What caught my eye at Bonhams

What caught my eye at Bonhams

Tuesday at Bonhams, I really surprised myself. I was swayed by paint, and in a couple of different directions. I knew one of the cars on the docket for Bonhams’ classic car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, was a 1966 Lotus Cortina Mk 1. In 1966 I was a freshman in college and the Lotu-s and […]

Window shopping with Nicole at Bonhams

When I initially walked into Bonhams, I really did not know what to expect. Growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona, I had heard rumors of other auctions during Barrett-Jackson week, but didn’t know who was staging them or where to find them. But since joining the staff of ClassicCars.com, I got the inside scoop and on […]

What caught my eye at Barrett-Jackson

It’s one thing to see classic cars in auction catalogs, be they printed or online, to read the various auction-house descriptions, even to write the series of auction previews we shared with you last week. But it’s quite another thing to actually go to the auction venues, to see and to walk among those cars […]
