Tuesday’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Top 10 Cars To Watch

First edition of this daily series of entries I will be putting out this week. My top ten cars to watch each day at Barrett-Jackson. Just ten cars or trucks I’d want to bid on if I was at Westworld with a pocket full of cash! In no real particular order.

TOP-10

1963 C10 Yenko Truck
Lot Number 17

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
This thing is awesome. Old shop trucks are cool, especially when the shop is one of the most famous in the world sporting the Yenko logo. Recreation or not this would defiantly get some looks at the local cruise night.

1972 Datsun 240Z
Lot Number 49

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Z cars are super cool and this one has all the right stuff, big turbo, big brakes, great suspension. These cars are really underrated in most people’s eyes on how well they perform and handle. I’m really curious to see what kind of money this one brings.

1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
Lot Number 37

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
4-speed Trans Am’s are cool in whatever color, but the blue on blue is a very good looking combination. I’m a sucker for cars that have similar colored stripes as they do paint.

1973 Plymouth Duster
Lot Number 73

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
These cars are going to come on strong in a few years I think as all the other years get bought up. Personally I like the 72/73 body style better than the 70-71.

Street Legal NASCAR COT
Lot Number 99

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
How cool would it be to own your own NASCAR race car that you could drive on the street? You would defiantly be a hit at the local cruise night.

1949 Ford Cab Over
Lot Number 124

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
A little odd, but way cool. Different is key here!

1955 Chevrolet Cameo Truck
Lot Number 79

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Cameo trucks are some of the most beautiful trucks GM ever put on the road. This white 1955 is a great example of that beauty. With only 15k miles this has to be one of the nicest original Cameo’s left!

1950 Ford F1
Lot Number 142

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Owning a hot rodded version of this truck myself this one caught my eye right away. An original example is on my bucket list so I’m curious to see what this one brings.

1968 Chevrolet Custom Pick Up
Lot Number 155

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
In my opinion the best of the 67-72 Chevy trucks. In the world of over the top crazy custom builds this one is a nice, refreshing, clean example. Its hard not to like!

1960 Morris Minor
Lot Number 161

Rare isn’t always cool……you be the judge on this one!

TMD “Fired Up Friday” Responce: 12-14-12

My reply to “Fired Up Friday” on the daily Sirius-XM satellite radio show The Morning Drive with Mike Bagley and Pete Pistone. Because of work I don’t have time to call in every week but I will respond on here! Comments to the blog are more than welcome!

FUF #1: “What was your favorite 2012 NSCS of 2012 and why?”
Got to be the Watkins Glen race. That was one of the craziest finishes ever. Plus I think it really turned some non-road course fans onto just how exciting road racing can be.

FUF #2: ” Are you for or against lights being installed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway?”
100%. Sure it may not “fix” the races, but it will certainly shake it up for a year or two. Plus a night time summer race is always more enjoyable for the fans. I went to nearly every Pepsi 400 in the 90’s and I can’t even begin to explain how much more enjoyable that race was when it moved to night time. Maybe they could do a half and half race, start the race in the daylight and then have it finish under the lights. That would certainly add a challenge to the drivers and teams with the changing track conditions.

FUF #3: “Reportedly, @NASCAR is considering taking horse power away from the new cars to reduce speed and increase competition, do you agree with this process?”

I’m 50/50 on this. While I know it doesn’t make a hill of beans difference on track I still get excited when I here a big speed put up. Heck I was giddy yesterday when I heard reports they were in the mid 190’s and the Charlotte test. I think that is part of the old schooler in me that still wishes they would run 200+ at the ‘Dega and Daytona(I know, its not safe and will not nor should not happen). While I’m all for improving the on track racing I’d rather them give the new car a year to see how it shakes out and how it changes things up. Of course on the other hand if your going to reinvent the wheel you might as well do it all at once.

New Chevy SS Sprint Cup Car Well Worth Wait!

Finally Chevrolet unveiled there new 2013 Cup car today but I have to say it was well worth the wait! I’m really impressed with the body lines on the side and rear bumper. Check it out!
