Lot S73 features my favorite look of all the C1 Corvette’s, a big brake fuelie! Black is just an added bonus!

 

Lot S95 features what I have always thought as one of the most collectible Mustang’s of the modern era, the first recreation of the GT350. This is a prototype car owned by the man Mr. Shelby himself!

Lot S121 gives us another Mustang. Although they may not have been the most popular body style in the Boss line up, performance wise, having owned both a 70 and a 71, I think these cars run much better than the 1969 and 1970 302 versions.

 

If you’ve been following our coverage all week, you are probably wondering by now why I haven’t mentioned any of the dozens of awesome factory race cars going across the blocks this week, well the reason is simple, there are so many they got their own article! If you missed it, click the link below to read it!

With that being said, there was one factory drag car so awesome, it had to be mentioned in here. Lot S126, a factory Hemi Dart. The even cooler thing about this car, as if it could get any cooler, it was bought in the next town over, Sylva, NC from where I live! I’m currently researching to see if anyone remembers the car as it appears to have spent most its life in the area!

 

Everyone knows I love four doors, Lot S132 is a great example of a rare factory four door! Check it out!

If you’ve looked at anything Mecum Kissimmee, you’ve saw Lot 146.1, this rare black & blue Corvette has to catch your eye! I also imagine it is going to catch a ton of money for the seller!

Lot S151 to me is THE look that defines the C3 Corvette. Bought new at Yenko Chevrolet, Baldwin Motion style hood, big block, etc, etc, it has it all!

Often times when you see a “tanker” Vette, its a Bloomington Gold restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with that at all, but it sure is nice to see one that was used for what it was built for! To race!! Check out Lot S235.

Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas ’13: Thursday Cars To Watch

For all of today’s cars, CLICK HERE

Here are our top ten cars to watch for the day!

Lot 3000

Charity cars are always hot at Barrett-Jackson and for good reason! This GT500 will go to benefit the Wounded Warriors Family Support.

Lot 3001

Another charity ride, this 1957 Lincoln is going to raise money for the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital.

Lot 7000

1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. A very nicely optioned 70 Z, we had the mate to this car a few years ago in our garage only with an M21 instead of an M22. I know what we sold ours for, I bet this one goes for a lot more!

Lot 183

Another Z28, these 1979 models have been hot at shows I’ve been to, especially 4-speeds. This car should set or maybe reset the market on them.

Lot Number 116

F1’s always have a special place in my heart, this 1950 is no exception.

Lot 93

King of The Hill, the ZR1. Always been a bucket list car of mine!

Lot 134

Gotta love an old Packard. This 1953 Clipper appears to be all original, although I’m not sure what the value is or how big the market is for something like this.

Lot 169

The Buick Grand National, the car that might be credited for bringing back the Muscle Car along side the Foxbody Mustangs of the late 80’s. This low mile example should be a good sign whether those people hording these cars in their garage should keep up the hording, or start driving them!

Lot 146

Be interesting to see if this Barrett-Jackson Mustang really is anything special on resale, or if its just another one of the hundreds of “special edition” Mustangs we’ve saw over the past 6 or 7 years.

Lot 127

Going on Thursday this car could end up being steal of the show.  Other than the incorrect 454 engine this Vette has all the right options to fetch big money.

Well that’s all for the day! Be sure and check back tomorrow for more cars to watch!
