As long as you are positioned among like value cars, you'll do great. Best of luck to you!!!
Clearly humor escapes your grasp..

Yes, the Scottsdale Barrett Jackson auction. The car will sell on Friday January 18th at around 5:30-6:30pm from my calculations. Lot 1078

Here is the link to it on the Barrett-Jackson website.

I have no idea, actually. I have more time and money tied up in this car than any other car I have every built, so I need it to do very well. However, I've learned from previous auctions that you never know what to expect as a seller. It's terrifying, but I feel if there is a chance to get it in front of the right people, it is most likely at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale.

I forgot to answer your engine question. It has an LSX427 built by Southern Performance with 625hp. I didn't really believe that number until I took it out on the road for the first time and floored it. It is extremely responsive throughout the RPM range. I added the Katech Valve Covers, coil relocation kit, Carbon fiber intake cover, wrapped all the wires with braided wrap, and had my friend who is a TIG welder custom fabricate the aluminum air intake.

That's a great looking car. Everything about it works. I will make sure to see it in person and watch it "go across the block". The headers look like the stainless works that were for a certain custom chassis. How did they work for you? I mean, did you have to modify them? Thanks.

Roadster shop had them made by stainless works to feed into 3” ceramic coated pipes with auger inserts. They fit great with the roadster shop chassis.

Actually, perhaps I shouldn’t say they fit great as delivered since it was roadster shop who fit the engine and exhaust to their chassis. However, I don’t see any places where they were cut and welded back together.
