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.

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!

Here are our top five cars to watch.

Lot # 10: 

1959 Facel Vega HK 500

1959_Facel_Vega_HK_500_03

 

I’m not even sure I’ve ever heard of one of these but I like it! The windshield looks like its out of a Corvette, short two door styling, two seater styling but with a long sweeping roof line of a big car. This car is a work of art!

Lot # 14

1967 Chevrolet Yenko Super Camaro 450

1967_Chevrolet_Yenko_Super_Camaro_03

 

Yenko’s are rare as it is, let alone an early Yenko. This 67 is sure to bring big money.

Lot #24

1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4

1967_Ferrari_275_GTB4_0013

 

Speaking of works of art, this Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is a definite work of art.

Lot# 21

1995 Ferrari F50

1995_Ferrari_F50_0012_0

 

Ah the F50, this one should bring an easy one million dollars.

Lot# 27

2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4

2006_Bugatti_Veyron_0002

 

I’ve never been a big fan of the looks of a Veyron but you can’t argue with their performance!

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.
bluebird

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.
duster

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!
cabover

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!
cAMEO

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.
redf1

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!
68

1960 Morris Minor
Lot Number 161

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
Rare isn’t always cool……you be the judge on this one!
minor
