Friday’s Rain didn’t keep the the Cars from Rolling Across the Block at Barrett-Jackson

Scottsdale, ARIZ. (January 20, 2017) – This January sure has been a wet one for Scottsdale’s collector car auction week.  Barrett-Jackson‘s 2017 Scottsdale collector car auction kicked off last Saturday under rainy skies and Friday was no different as several storms moved through the Valley, dumping a ton of rain.

Thought it may have been raining outside, Barrett-Jackson’s auction block was dry and in full swing Friday night as car after car crossed the auction block, finding their was to new owners as they rolled out the door of the main auction room.

Many of us in the Valley have seen Dan Hogan’s Hogie Shine Hauler, a custom 53 Ford Cab-Over Flatbed with his custom 30 Model A Ford Coupe on the back. It’s been a crowd gatherer at the Goodguys car show and many others.  We were surprised to see it roll up onto the auction block being sold as a pair.  Bidding started immediately and Dan’s pair of customs Fords soon hit $120,000 before the hammer dropped.  We’ll miss seeing these two awesome classics should they be leaving the Phoenix Metro area.

Other notable sales of the night were Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler’s 2012 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.  The 1,244 horsepower, 270 mph Supercar was auctioned off for Steven Tyler’s Janie’s Fund, a charity set up to assist victimized and abused children.  The sale came with a one week stay at Tyler’s home in Maui and a guitar signed by all of Aerosmith’s band members.  The hammer dropped at $800,000 and anonymous buyer then threw on another $50,000 for the package, netting Steven Tyler’s Janie’s Fund 100 percent of a cool $850,000.

Powered by an LSX based, supercharged engine, serial #001 of the 2017 COPO Camaro was auctioned off with all benefits going to the United Way.  The hammer fell at a respectable $175,000 for this 8 second drag car.  Only 69 COPO Camaros will be produced in 2017.

Ford rolled a 2017 Ford Raptor across the block.  The high bidder on the 3.5 liter, 450 horsepower Raptor being auctioned will receive the last production 2017 VIN number.  They will also receive a one-on-one day of driver training at Fords driver training school in Utah.  The hammer dropped at $157,000, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
