Top Sales for Friday at Scottsdale Auction

Every year in January a few friends and I  gather around a big screen TV and make a weekend of watching the Barrett-Jackson Auction. For a few years, due to the economy the car collection market has been idle, for lack of a better term. In the pre-2009 economic down hill spiral, the collection car market was strong, and auctions like Barrett-Jackson did very well.

Turn the clock forward to present day and it seems from viewing the past few days that the collectors are back and ready to spend some money. A bidder has to pay a registration fee of $500 (A Pre-Registration discount price of $400 is available for applications received by December 10, 2012). On top of the closed auction bid the buyer has to pay an On-site Buyer’s Premium of 10% or Absentee Buyer’s Premium of 12%.

Here are the top 5 sellers for Friday:
