One of the best things about winter in Arizona is all the classic cars you will see just driving down the road; once our winter visitors arrive, they bring out the muscle. From 55 Chevy trucks to 76 Stingrays, the streets become an ongoing classic car show, but if you want to see even more, winter is also the time for the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction! Featuring the big ticket classics that every car lover has dreamed of owning and a few that are special because of their original owners or purpose (a few years ago a Batmobile was up on the auction block) if you’ve had visions of 1948 Ford Firetrucks running through your head, your January vacation to Scottsdale is going to take your breath away!
And January 12th through the 20th is the time! Located at 16601 North Pima Boulevard, this classic car show and auction is the darling of Barrett Jackson circuit! And although this auction features the latest and greatest of EVERYTHING with a motor, the classic cars are always our favorite part; especially when they offer the unusual, including the aforementioned 1948 Ford Firetruck! Some of the more unique offerings on the block this year include a 1949 Case SO Orchard Streamline Tractor painted in a flawless Flambeau Red and a 1954 Chevrolet 3100 Custom Pickup that was once owned by the star of Die Hard, Bruce Willis; some honorable mentions in the really cool vehicle line-up include a 1937 Plymouth Custom Coupe, a 1930 Ford Model AA Ice Truck, and a 2001 West Coast Choppers El Diablo Custom Softail Motorcycle. We could actually go on for days about the selection of cars being auctioned off, but we see our guests would probably prefer to see it all themselves, not just read about it in a blog! Ticket prices range in price from $12 for a children’s general admission ticket all the way up to $7500 for the chance to see the show from the comfort of the Craig Jackson Owner’s Box; purchasing them online and in advance from this site will let you save a few bucks or more.
Your rental vehicle may not be as cool as the 1937 Ford House car Camper you can bid on at Barrett Jackson Auto Auction, but our Parsons Villas luxury escapes will be so comfortable your car choice won’t matter one bit! Reserve yours today and discover how to make your vacation shine!
