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

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 […]

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

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 […]

Window shopping with Nicole at Barrett-Jackson

Being born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Barrett Jackson auction has always been an event for looking. Never once in my years of going has it been to purchase a vehicle or even sell one. I have always gone because to me, as a little girl, as a teenager, and now as a young […]

Discarded no longer, race cars cherished by collectors

Discarded no longer, race cars cherished by collectors

One in a series of previews for the 2015 Arizona classic car auctions Used to be, there was nothing less valuable than an old race car. Consider that rather than having to pay British taxes after the 1965 racing season, the six Shelby Daytona Coupes that beat Ferrari for the world championship were on their […]

Driven: 2015 Dodge Charger SXT

OK, I’ll admit it. I was a little deflated when I realized the 2015 Dodge Charger I would be driving for a week wasn’t the one powered by the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine that enables your full-size, street-legal four-door family sedan to travel at super speedway speeds usually reserved for NASCAR stock cars. In fact, the […]

One in a series of previews for the 2015 Arizona classic car auctions Which is more classically American, a pre-war and V16-powered Cadillac or a fuel-injected and split-windowed 1963 Chevrolet Corvette? What about an Auburn boattail speedster vs. a Hemi ‘Cuda? Our point is that regardless of any formal car-club definitions, each of those four […]
