Mecum Kissimmee is on TV, too. Started today on the Esquire Channel, then NBCSports next Friday and then brodcast NBC on the 26th. 

 

Barrett-Jackson is live on broadcast Fox tomorrow at 3:00 ET.  Who would have ever thought that car auctions would be shown live on regular broadcast TV?

Spent most of this evening in the main hall at B-J..they've expanded the indoor exhibit space since last year.   Going back tomorrow to see the cars outside.   The Gooding & Company auction (also in Scottsdale) this afternoon was really incredible as far as the classic European cars--vintage Ferraris, Fiats, Mercedes, Lancias, a Facel Vega, BMW M1, etc...

 

In the Ford exhibit at the entrance I saw a '15 Mustang GT, looked very sharp in person..also saw the new '14 CTS, Camaro Z-28, Corvette Stingray and Silverado in the GM exhibit.

Rob, when you go back tomorrow, can you find out what the AMF/Wen-Mac Mustang, lot 5420, sold for? The B-J website has lost the info.

Lot 5424, the Delco shock demonstrator with the two '63 Chevy promos, sold for $575.00.

Unfortunately it is up to each station to decide . . .  the local Fox affiliate here in Tampa decided to run infomercials instead of the auction ! :angry:

Saw it from distance in a display case yesterday, don't know what it went for.  Staying home today to watch the NFL playoffs.

 

Went back yesterday to see the cars outside and watch some of the auction..a highlight of the day for me was standing in front of the 1998 Ferrari F1 car outside and hearing it start up...

A friend of mine told me yesterday that he saw a '66 Barracuda factory prepped drag car with a 426ci hemi in it on Barrett-Jackson. I didn't think that the factory (Plymouth/Dodge) put 426's in any A-bodies until '68? Does anyone know? Seems like an incredible feat fitting that engine in a first generation A-body.

Thanks.

Hmm... I saw the Sox & Martin '68 Hemi Barracuda, don't recall seeing a '66 there.

 

Edit: checked the catalog, there was no '66 Hemi Barracuda listed..he probably is thinking of the '68 Sox & Martin Barracuda..

Looks like it sold for $920.

I've been watching the live Mecum auction in Kissimee on Esquire TV at the same time. While it doesn't have the same number of top-level cars as B-J, the prices seem more down-to-earth -- but there are too many unsold cars with price reserves, and the announcers don't seem to be paying a lot of attention to what's on the block.

I'm restoring a 1968 Triumph Daytona motorcycle at the same shop where the Shelby King Cobra was restored. I work at the shop on Saturdays...it was pretty cool to see the progress each week during the process. Impressive to be working alongside a 1.6 million dollar car.
