I've attended a number of times over the years. It's not a Barrett Jackson but it covers pretty much the entire car scene including exotics, vettes, muclecars, etc. They run pretty much anything through the two rings in one building. Other than the auction they have a car corral where individuals have their own cars for sale and there's a huge automotive swap area- a lot of junk but useful if you need a door handle for say a 1949 ford. One thing though - watch out for the golf carts. Half the people driving them are not watching where they are going.

Been going for the last 20 or so years. Will be there Sunday. Yeah, you definitely need to watch out for the carts. Those jackazzes will run right up on your heels. Hope you have fun.

I went to one they had in Vegas a couple of years ago - off the strip.
Lots of different cars there and not many bidders. Very few cars sold and they charged an entry fee for spectators.
They tried to sell a custom car owned by Wayne Newton but it was very odd looking and did not bid up to his reserve. The local teaser ads stated that Wayne would probably be there for the auction but he was a no show due to a cold.
I'll take a wild Mecum or Barrett Jackson auction every time.

all I can say is wow,there was so many cars,every type you could imagine,and also alot of buyers.what we enjoyed most was behind the auction was a area where people could sell their own cars,and was some really good buys ,it took us hours to get thru that area alone.I was suprised at how many golf carts there was down there,we will be going again next year!!
