Lot 623- I know what your thinking? 1985 Dodge Truck?? But look a little deeper, this is a sweet ride!
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!
Lot 840.1– Check this thing out! Factory crew cab! Rare!Rare! Rare!
Once gain the folks at the Cabin Fever Car Show in Knoxville, TN packed the house! They take advantage of just what the name says, “Cabin Fever”! With over 200 cars in attendance, dozens of vendors as well as a strong indoor swap meet, these guys fill the Knoxville Expo Center from wall to wall! Over the course of the weekend, there must have been at least 5,000 spectators through the front door, if not more. This show is really a hidden gem in the world of indoor car show’s. It doesn’t attract the attention of bigger shows in the area like The World Of Wheels in Chattanooga, but it really should and deserves it. I’ve been attending this show year after year, even back when it was at the old location at Chilhowee Park and had the privilege of watching it grow to what it is today! If it keeps growing like this though, they might just have to hunt and even bigger building to have it in! From what I heard, they sold out every vendor space, car show spot and swap meet spot they had! Well done guys!

Along with our extensive Barrett-Jackson coverage we always like to take a look at the other major auctions going on out in Arizona.
One of which is the Gooding & Company Auction. “The Scottsdale Auction” as they call at. It runs January 20th & 21st.
Below is an exert from their site describing it.
Arizona is long-known as an ideal winter destination, and each January Scottsdale hosts a thriving automotive marketplace adjacent to the Fashion Square Mall and charming Old Town Scottsdale. Gooding & Company has brought a refined approach to this lively and well-established event, offering stunning vehicles across marques and eras. When our viewing showcase opens on Wednesday of Arizona Auction Week, enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the high-quality assortment of vehicles up for auction and connect with Gooding & Company’s top-notch staff and fellow collectors. Over the past nine years in Scottsdale, Gooding & Company has consistently raised the bar for the collector car year, with records that reset the market. Our exceptional collection often becomes the talk of the town and beyond.
The way their site is set up, I’m not able to share photos, but here are some important links below. First off, its a link to the entire auction lot.
Below are a few of my favorites!!
Who doesn’t love a vintage race car? Especially one with the Gurney name on it.
REAL Cobra’s are always cool!
Yeah, that’s an American Motors AMX3, definitely the coolest product they ever made!
1986 Ford RS200, rare, super cool !
Forget Gas Monkey Garage, this is a nice original!

Picking cars for Saturday is always hard, I usually start with a list of like 20 and then just narrow them down. Too many to choose from!
Be sure and check them all out at the link below!
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.
