Lot 111, a 1991 Dodge Stealth. I’ve always liked these cars and their Mitsubishi cousin’s! They had a lot of problems back in the day, but still very cool cars!

 

Lot 214, BAN-ONE, need I say more?

 

Lot 204, they are only original once! Glad to see this 1940 Ford left that way, the patina on this thing is out of this world awesome!

 

Lot 235, The Skoal Bandit, maybe not as famous as its #33 cousin, but this car is still a cool piece. Top ten finish at Indy in 1995, driven by Rick Mast.

Lot 169 is a very clean, simple Corvette. In the world of big blocks and L88’s, and 427’s, and this and that, it’s just nice to see a simple, clean small block car!

 

Lot 172‘s color is what caught my eye most. Emberglo Orange, check it out!

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 is 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.

JDSMotorsports.com Quick Feature: 2014 Mustang GT On Daytona Beach

We mentioned it in our “Coming in 2017….” post, now it’s here! This will be a permanent Wednesday feature on the site starting in 2017. The “Quick Feature” will be a short video showcasing various cars & trucks I run across at shows across the south.

 

Our first quick feature comes to you from the shores of the world’s most famous beach, Daytona Beach, Florida. I have to admit, riding in and getting to shoot this car on the actual beach was a very cool experience! One I won’t soon forget! Check out Travis Smith’s 2014 Mustang GT!

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!

Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2015: Thursday Cars To Watch

For the Barrett-Jackson TV Schedule, CLICK HERE

For all of Thursday’s cars, CLICK HERE

 

Lot 616: 1996 Ford Mustang Shinoda Boss

What makes this one cool: I’ve always been a big fan of the SN95 Shinoda cars, although they’ve never really brought big money. Curious to see what this one does, it might set an upward trend for the cars.

 

Lot 626: 1949 Plymouth Suburban

What makes this one cool: I saw one of these a few years ago at a show for sale and fell in love with it. It was still in its original glory, not built like this one. I thought then, what a cool car that would make. I guess someone else had the same idea!

Lot 756: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT1

What makes this one cool: This is one of several 1972 LT1’s going across the blocks on Thursday. The LT1 in my opinion may be or is the best performing Corvette ever built pre-modern era. Especially in small block form. What makes this one cool is its a factory air car and a rare color. In fact my dad had an identical car a few years back, same color and all.

Lot 770.2 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

What makes this one cool: These cars are all the fuss in the media and very hard to get right now. I’d imagine someone will pay a premium price to put this one in their garage.

Lot 791: 2007 Shelby GT Coupe

What makes this one cool: Aside from this being an EPA test car, these Shelby GT’s are probably the most well balanced car ever built on the S197 chassis and are actually closer to the Shelby heritage than the more popular GT 500’s.
