Barrett-Jackson Returns to Las Vegas!

It’s almost September and that means one of my favorite events of the year will soon be here.  What is it?? The 11th Annual Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Collector Car Auction (also plenty of collector automobile related memorabilia!).  The dates are September 27 -29, 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. If you love cars of almost all eras and types, as well as some really cool auto-related memorabilia, you need to be here in Vegas and attend this event!

I have attended almost every one of them and at the first one, we even got to interview the son of one of the founder’s, Craig Jackson.  The podcast is in archives and I will find it! The cool thing was that they never intended this to be such a long-term annual event.  But Las Vegas is the perfect place to blend car lovers, car collectors, and automobile memorabilia to buy and sell!!  Eleven years later and each year it gets bigger and better.

No buying?  Ok, but wouldn’t it be fun to see what your first car would be worth today? Want to see and even touch your dream car? I’m betting it will be here.  Seriously. Walk the rows of all the cars before and after they go on the block.  Get a bidding number and see what you can buy.  All vehicles will sell, no reserve!

 

As always, the Las Vegas auction will feature a spectacular docket of collector vehicles, including supercars, exotics, popular American muscle cars, and customs, as well as hundreds of authentic automobilia items selling at No Reserve. This year’s Las Vegas Auction will also continue Barrett-Jackson’s first yearlong charity initiative, Driven Hearts, dedicated to raising money and awareness for the American Heart Association.  Every year, they auction off several high end, limited edition cars with all the proceeds going to the charity.

The gates open on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 8 a.m. In addition to the collector car and automobilia auctions, visitors can also experience exciting thrill rides along with a wide variety of interactive exhibits and activities, including the popular Behind the Hobby Collector Car Symposiums, during the event.
