Black, low gear, 4-speed, no heater, dog dish hub caps, big engine. Nothing beats a plain Jane car. This 1960 Chevy is a great example of “built to run”. Check it out, Lot 982.

I never understood why more people didn’t do Dodge Viper engine swaps over the years? I remember seeing a Challenger at Carlisle years ago that had one and thought that was just the coolest thing. Apparently the builder of Lot 1016 agree’s with me!

I know what your thinking, Studebaker? But look at Lot 1027, check out the McCulloch supercharger hanging from the top of the engine.

Something about this ‘Cuda just grabs my eye. Its traditional Mopar. Over the top color, billboards, shaker hood, got to love it! Check it out, Lot 1071.

 

Low miles, four speed, hold on to your hat when this one goes across the block, it’s gonna ring the bell. Lot 1133.

Lot 624- Every time I see one of these cars it will be on my list! I love these!

 

Lot 701– Usually I’m not a big fan of chopped trucks, but this Mercury, yes I said Mercury is just way too cool not to mention!

 

Lot 730– You want a Z28? Forget the 69’s, get a real Z, get a 1970! This is a great example! One owner car!

 

 

Lot 775.3– A Superbird Convertible? Huh? Pretty cool even for a clone!

Lot 839– Factory 150 Business Coupe, Fuelie too, it will take an awfully impressive car to top this one on my list this year!

I’m not a huge 70’s Ford truck fan, but this green F100 in Lot W34 does it for me! This just has a clean look!

Anything with Shelby on it always does well, Lot W124┬áis a neat modern example of a Shelby product. This was the return of the “renta-racer”. At only 500 made, this is sure to be a strong collectible for years to come.

Lot W137.1 is a timeless Chevrolet, 348, four speed, classic look. Great history, paper work, documentation, this car should really do well.

Lot 142.1 is one of my favorite cars of all time, the black widow 1957 Chevrolet. Even for a clone, this is an awesome car.

The time has come in the collector car world for the annual round of auctions that take place each January starting in Kissimmee, Florida at Mecum and ending in Scottsdale, Arizona under the big tent at Barrett-Jackson.

Enough of that boring street car stuff, lets take a look at a few race car’s for sale!

 

First up is Lot 235 at Barrett-Jackson. It’s the #1 Skoal Bandit car driven by Rick Mast. This car raced to a 10th place finish in the 1995 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis.

There isn’t a ton of info on Lot J182. But I figure it’s worth adding to the list!

https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0117-267442/nascar-replica/

The last of the Mecum cars, lot F122, this is probably my favorite, “The Black Widow” 1957 Chevrolet. This particular car was drive by Jack Smith.

When you think 50’s NASCAR race car, the Hudson Hornet has to be one of the first to come to mind. This particular car isn’t a real race car, but a tribute to the legendary “Fabulous Hudson Hornet”. Lot 973 at Barrett-Jackson, check it out!

Lot 1040.1 at Barrett-Jackson has “The King” Richard Petty’s hands all over it, in fact, it is still titled in his name. This is the first “Petty Garage” car ever, a fully customized 2009 Dodge Challenger.

Lot 7004 is a 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo “Intimdator” Show Car. Built in honor of Dale Earnhardt, the car was a sort of prototype to future Monte Carlo styling. This car has been in the GM Heritage Collection. This is definitely a one of a kind piece!

The next two cars are examples of what make the NASCAR and Barrett-Jackson connection so special. Both these cars will be auctioned off for charity. 100% of the hammer price will go to Nationwide’s Children’s Hospital Foundation.
