Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale ’14 Wednesday Recap

Lets look and see how ours cars to watch did! If you missed them, CLICK HERE

1988 Ford Mustang Saleen- $26,950, pretty good money for the car, but given the rarity of it, I can’t help but think it would have went for more later in the week.

1949 GMC Tow Truck- $12,650, very cool piece of patina to have sitting around for the money

1963 Dodge Polara- $60,500, solid money for this car to be a recreation!

1939 Chrysler Business Coupe- $27,500, a lot of car for the money!

1941 Dodge Truck-$82,500, strong money for the truck, this is a very hit or miss vehicle, not a lot of butts out there for a seat like this

1941 Ford Truck- $42,900

1971 Dodge Demon- $41,800 pretty strong price, but an ultra cool car!

2001 Misubishi Evo- $46,200, given Paul Walkers tragic death and fan following, I really thought this car would bring more money than it did.

1971 Chevrolet Corvette LT1- $55,000, solid money, these cars have been up and down over the years, looks like they are up again

1960 Chevrolet Bel Air- $66,000, I still maintain this is my pick of the auction.

There were a few deals to be had yesterday. Its too early to predict, but I really feel like the customized cars are on there way down and the original pieces are on there way back up!

I missed the end of the auction and the top five sellers but I will try and update as soon as I get the info!

1. 2013 Ford F-350 200,000 (charity)

The second one is a little high, but the first one was out of this world high! If this is the trend, fastback cars may bring 200k!

There were a few decent deals, but nothing I would consider a bargain! I can’t believe how high the cars were tonight! Records will surely be broken come the weekend!

NASCAR Picks: New Hampshire

Pick-A-Winner

Tony Stewart almost pulled off some of that summer magic of his last weekend in Daytona for me, but hey, I’ll take a 2nd place.  That brings my over all average up to 11.6, maybe I’ll have a top ten average by the end of the year!

To see all my picks for the year, CLICK HERE

This week I’m going with Joey Logano. He’s won here before and has 4 top ten’s in 9 starts. The number 22 team is on an up swing and I think he can break into victory lane this weekend.

Yahoo Sports Fantasy Picks

Last week I thought I had a very solid week considering the randomness of restrictor plate racing. Like I mentioned above, Tony Stewart finished 2nd. Kurt Busch finished 6th, Dale Jr. 8th.  David Ragan came home a respectable 22nd. I also got a qualifying bonus for Kyle Busch.

This week my A driver is Jimmie Johnson, he’s on a such a role I can’t help but not pick him. My B team is Joey Logano and Kurt Busch. For my C driver I’m going with a bit of a respect move. I’m picking Morgan Shepard who Sunday will become the oldest person ever to race in Sprint Cup at the age of 72.  On the bench I’ve got Brad Keselowski, Ryan Newman, Kyle Busch, and Rickey Stenhouse Jr.
