Don’t miss a minute of the Barrett-Jackson action, check out the tv schedule by CLICKING HERE

 

Below are our Top Ten Gotta Haves For Friday!

Lot 934: 1958 Chevrolet Brookwood Wagon

While its a little disappointing that they went with a 454 instead of the original 348, this is still a cool car. I’ve always loved the 58 styling and you hardly ever see any wagon’s.

Lot 952: 1991 GMC Syclone

If you’ve read anything on here by now, you know I love the GMC Syclone’s, this low mile version is sure to bring some good money.

Lot 1008.1: 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda

As a Challenger T/A owner, you know a AAR is gonna be on my list!

Lot 1030.4: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

If you could order a new ’69 Mustang today, I’d imagine you’d order it just like this! Track pack, 428 Cobra Jet, 4-speed, black, shaker hood, etc. etc.

Lot 1054: 1961 Chevrolet Bubble Top

348, 4-speed, bubble top. Those are the words dreams are made of! You couldn’t get a better looking Chevrolet than this in the 1st half of the 60’s!

Lot 1025.1: 1958 Chevrolet Impala

I love the build of this car, just enough custom work and a big bored out 348.

Lot 1060: 1974 Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am

My dad had a car identical to this about fifteen or twenty years ago, I’d hate to say what we sold ours for…….

Lot 1069: 1969 Ford Mustang

Cobra Jet coupe’s are rare birds!!

Lot 1072: 1969 Shelby GT350

Speaking of rare coupe’s, check this one out!

Lot 1133: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

Can’t overlook this one!! Hoping it brings big money! Not that I will ever sell mine….

Lot 006: 1953 Hudson Hornet Convertible

I’m a big Hudson Hornet fan. The classic styling, the Twin H Power, what’s not to love? This car is even cooler being a convertible, you never see any convertible’s left.

Lot 027: 1967 Toyota 2000 GT

Take one look at this and you are probably thinking Ferrari or some other exotic. But on second look, you realize this is a Toyota.

Lot 045: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Not only is it a split window, not only is it a fuel injected car, but its a Z06. This is a must have for any Corvette collector.

Lot 109: 1956 Chevrolet Corvette SR1  Tribute Car

The SR1, one of the prettiest Corvette race cars ever built. Every one wants to own one, unfortunately, not everyone can own the original. So someone took the time to build a well done tribute car. I have no problem with it, I’d be just as happy to own it!

Lot 120: 1990 Ferrari F40

One of the coolest sports cars of all time, anytime there is an F40 at the auction you cannot pass it up!

Lot 147: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88

Just look at it, one of the baddest Corvette’s in any color, let alone black!

Lot 155: 1962 Shelby Cobra

Everyone gets so caught up in the kit Cobra look, the 427’s and the side pipes that you forgot how much of a classic look the early small block Cobra’s had!

Lot 013: 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull Wing

It’s a Gull Wing, had to make the list!

Lot 127: 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

I’ll admit, I’m not very educated on my early Ferrari’s, but this thing is an absolute work of art. The styling and design is just out of this world.

Lot 033: 1950 Ferrari 166 MM/195 S Berlinetta Le Mans

Alot of these bigger auctions place what they expect the car to bring on their listings. Usually I try to ignore it so it doesn’t sway my opinion’s on cars. It would be easy for me to pick the top ten most valuable cars and look like I hit a home run. But this list isn’t about that. Its a mix of popular cars with personal taste. But when i see a car listed that is expected to bring five to six million dollars, well it has to go on the list!

Lot 612 a 1993 Chevrolet 454 SS Truck, my dad had one of these when they first came out, underrated hot rod sports trucks!

Lot 721, a 1961 Chevrolet Impala with a 348 and a tri-power. This one is extra rare being the only year you could get a 2 door sedan in the top of the line Impala model.

Here are a few of our favorite cars for today.

The black widow, one of my favorite cars of all time. Even in a recreation, this is an awesome ride.

http://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1957-CHEVROLET-150-CUSTOM-2-DOOR-POST-189002

Personally, I think you can have your 1st gen Camaro’s, to me the 2nd gen cars are so much better. This black 71 Z has to be close to the top of the mountain as far as 2nd gen’s go!

As much as I’m a Roadkill fan, I still enjoy a little Gas Monkey too, after all, it was just once race?

Gone But Not Forgotten: Barney Hall

Photo Credit: ISC Archives

 

For myself and so many, Barny Hall was THE VOICE of NASCAR for so many years. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

Below is an small portion of the MRN announcement, you can see it all HERE.

“It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that Motor Racing Network must today convey the passing of our friend and colleague, long-time MRN anchor Barney Hall. For many of us in the racing and broadcasting industries, Barney was more than just ‘The Voice’ who brought us the NASCAR action each week on the radio. He was an inspiration, a teacher and mostly, a friend. Barney was a consummate professional whose style and honesty made him one of the most revered voices of the sport and perhaps the most trusted reporter of his day.

“In a world that can have its share of egos, Barney’s humor and humility kept everyone around him firmly grounded. His smooth and easygoing delivery was the mark by which others were measured. His co-anchor, Joe Moore, once commented that ‘Barney was the calming force in the midst of a raging storm and simply by listening to him, you knew there was safe passage through it.’ Barney Hall was the true voice of NASCAR and although his own voice has gone silent, his presence will live on in the many current motor sports broadcasters who learned at the knee of such a great storyteller.”
