-I usually get sucked into the Barrett-Jackson auction every year. This year, not so much. But I did watch the end of Saturday's acution. Here are a few cars of note:
They sold the rights to the first production Dodge Challenger. The numbers were not going high enough so Craig Jackson (part owner) started bidding on it from the stage and wound up buying it for $400K.
-They also had the first production 09 ZR1 Vette. It went to Dave Ressler for a cool million bucks. That is the same price he paid last year when he bought the oldest known 'vette (#3) in the world.
-The first GT500KR went for $550K to Ron Pratte. He is the guy that bought the Super Snake Cobra last year for $5.5 MILLION bucks last year. He also literally drove home the Superliner the year before that.
-Something got lost in the translation back to Engrish. Pretty funny, though.
Here are some great photos of liquids.
