I was so lucky back in January to be asked to cover our Velocity Channel's Barrett Jackson 2015 Scottsdale auction. I spent 5 days/15 hours a day taking photos, doing web based interviews and blogging. I was in heaven. As a car guy, it was the greatest show I've ever been to. Any car nut must make this a bucket list event. You don't have to bid on anything, just check out the mile long tent filled will cars and vendors and all sorts of great food. Then you have another 6 huge tents outside, housing hundreds of vehicles.
I'm highlighting just a few of my favorites below.
The 1935 Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Phaeton is a mouthful of title but such a special car and a splendid example of American craftsmanship and engineering. This special motor car had a 420 cubic inch motor which was upgraded to the SuperCharged specification netting 320 horsepower. The Duezy was part of the Salon collection of special high end automobiles curated by Ed Fallon and and Don Williams of the Blackhawk Collection.
