1957 Lincoln Continental: $700,000 (Money raised for the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital)

1950 Ford F1: $35,200

1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: $23,650

1953 Packard Clipper: $25,300

1987 Buick Grand National: $26,400

2008 Shelby GT Mustang: $45,100 Pretty strong money, I’m not sure what these sold for to begin with but it couldn’t have been much more than that.

1969 Chevrolet Corvette: $50,050 No deal here as I had predicted, fifty grand is strong money for a non-original motor car.

Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas 2013: Friday Cars To Watch

Day two at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas, here are our top ten cars to watch for today!

For all of Friday’s cars, CLICK HERE

CLICK each picture for the auction listing

This Brad Keselowski #2 car is from his 2012 Championship season, and possibly one of the last Dodge’s to ever race in NASCAR at least in this era. This will benefit the NASCAR foundation and should bring some big money for charity.

Tremec, LS1, air ride, this restomod is as good as it gets. Top goes down, price goes up!

How cool is this old Harley Davidson, I have no idea what it’s worth, but it sure is cool!

I love the black on primer look, just not sure if it will sell or not, guess we will see!

 

I’m not a big fan of the looks of this car, but I’m curious if it brings any money or not, definitely a unique piece!

 

Any two seater Jeep is cool, I’ll never understand why Jeep doesn’t make one from the factory!

 

This is a cool car but otherwise worthless without the Lemans history. Could be a cool piece of racing history pretty cheap!

I love this thing, my idea of a street rod, big and low!

 

This should prove an interesting piece, a Yenko clone, but it was also in one of the Fast and Furious movies.

 

I’m a fan of a straight eight to begin with, but how cool is this Pontiac Sedan Delivery! Has to be a very rare piece!

 

 

 

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!
