Car Porn Weekend

Barrett-Jackson Collector Auction

That’s the only way we can explain the second annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction this weekend.  It’s Car Porn…

Think of it this way; A weekend filled with shiny steel objects, polished chrome, soft rubber and leather.  Mixed with muscle power, sleek sexiness and that sweet smell of money.…. . My gawd, what more could you ask for in a Las Vegas event??

This unique event is filled with over 400 classic, one of a kind, collector and custom automobiles along with vintage and unique automobile memorabilia.  Filling up the Mandalay Bay convention center parking lot and all of it up for auction to the highest bidder.

Every thing from one owner Packard’s to un-restored DeLorean’s to classic Shelby GT’s, it’s all here for the taking.  That is if you have what it takes to do the bidding.  Unfortunately, speaking from a male perspective, it will be like our high school days with daddy’s hidden stash of Playboys…  Guys, you know what I am talking about.  You can look, you will certainly drool like a baby, and you may even be allowed to touch (with permission and gloves of course) … But you know there is no way she is ever going home with YOU!

Last years inaugural event brought 533 vehicles and over 50,000 attendants.  Generating nearly $30 million in sales!!  Even in a depressed economy, I am expecting the executive airport to be filled with buyers and lookers while the numbers will equal last year….

Want a peek?  They will have streaming Internet live from the auction starting on Thursday at 11am Las Vegas time.  or just drool over your computer screen as you browse the cars on their website…  Barrett-Jackson Website

Look for pics, updates and news from the scene….  Or at least on the next podcast….
