Recently, Raina, Jesse, Kate, and I attended one day of the 43rd Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at WestWorld in Scottsdale, AZ. The auction facility is nearly one million square feet of everything automotive. We were there on one of the first days of the week-long event, and the crowds were huge--just to see the cars and other items among the 1400 items being up for auction.
We learned that the auction brought in over $113 million, and the winning bids for some of the cars that we saw are included with some identifying information of these cars.
