Here are a few of our favorite cars for today.

The black widow, one of my favorite cars of all time. Even in a recreation, this is an awesome ride.

Personally, I think you can have your 1st gen Camaro’s, to me the 2nd gen cars are so much better. This black 71 Z has to be close to the top of the mountain as far as 2nd gen’s go!

As much as I’m a Roadkill fan, I still enjoy a little Gas Monkey too, after all, it was just once race?

Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas ’13: Thursday Cars To Watch

If you missed our Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Unofficial guide, CLICK HERE

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!

Mecum Houston: Thursday Cars To Watch

Its Mecum Auction time again! This auction takes Mecum to The Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Here are our cars to watch for Day 1, Thursday!

TOP-10

 

Lot T127: 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28

My favorite body style of all the Camaro’s, these late second generation cars have came on strong over the last few years. This is a very nice example of one with the Z28 package and the rare 4-speed.

Lot T126: 1964 AMC Rambler American Convertible

This is a rare piece for sure, but rare isn’t always desirable. Very interested to see how big or little money this one goes for. Check out the rare “twin stick” overdrive set up on it!

rambler

 

Lot T191: 1972 Chevy C10 Truck

What an awesome truck, a mix of new technology with the A/C and LED tail lights but a truck that still keeps the classic look.

c10

 

Lot T209: 1957 Chevy Wagon 150

I love a 1957 Chevy 150, I love the basic look, a wagon is even better! Check this one out!

1957

 

Lot T266: 1966 Dodge Charger

The ugly duckling so to speak of the Dodge Chargers. It caught my eye because we once had a 1966 Charger, only ours had the 426 Hemi in it.

charger

 

Lot T270: 1951 Ford Custom Sedan

It’s hard to beat the look of a 1951 Ford. This one is a little too stock for my liking but a nice car non the less.

51

 

Lot T289: 1990 Chevy Corvette ZR1

“King Of The Hill”, this was my dream Corvette growing up. This is a very, very nice example of a well kept ZR1.

zr1

 

Lot T302: 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R

One of my bucket list cars, one of two hundred and fifty ever made.

cobrar

 

Lot T333: 1990 Chevy Silverado Truck

This is an interesting item, an old school tow rig. I really like the late model wheels, but the long bed kinda kills it too. Still a nice truck though, just not sure if its collectible or with today’s modern diesel’s usable enough to bring any kind of decent price.

1990

 

Lot T322: 1996 Chevy Grand Sport Corvette

I read an article at the begging of the year that stated the 1996 Grand Sport was one of the most collectible Corvette’s of all time. Personally I just don’t see it. Maybe this one will fetch big money and prove me wrong!
