The ZR1 is the “King Of The Hill”, for years, THE Vette I always wanted. This particular ZR1 in Lot 7004.1 is the “Active Suspension” prototype, making it ultra rare out of the GM Heritage Collection.

 

Lot 1289.1, yeah, that’s a Pontiac Fuel Injected car, ultra rare! Ultra cool!

 

Lot 1456, the JFK Ambulance, always a car surrounded in a little bit of controversy. One things for sure, it always makes for good TV!

 

Lot 1390, better known as CERV 1. Developed by Zora Arkus-Duntov, one of the most innovative, important pieces of automotive history in American history. This car has a real chance at being top seller of the weekend in my opinion.

 

“Tanker” Corvette’s are cool, split window coupe’s are cool, Z06’s are cool, cars owned by famous people in the automotive world are cool. Well Lot 1363 has all of that and more! Check it out!

 

Honestly, there is just too many awesome cars to talk about today! Just get in front of the TV and watch all of Velocity’s coverage!! It’s gonna be epic!

Sadly in the collector car world “Hemi” just doesn’t do what it used to, but when you ad convertible to it, it still rings the bell! The GTX convertible is one of the rarest of them all! Lot L77 is 1 of 11!

 

 

Lot 82.1 not only carries three legendary drivers signature, but one of them on the door as well. Signed by Shelby, Unser, and Bondurant. This Bob Bondurant racing Mustang is a cool piece of history for anyone’s collection!

I love a Superbird, but the white on Lot L84 may be the classiest color of them all.

Lot 79.1, better known as King Of The Hill, the ZR1. This low mile example should really ring the bell!

Lot L40 brings us the first Foxbody Mustang of the auction. This is an SSP car, meaning basically it was a cop car. This particular one was a Florida Highway Patrol Car. These cars have been doing really good at auctions as of late, it will be interesting to see what trend this one sets for the year.

 

 

 

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!
