On Friday we experienced the sheer excitement when a pair of young teenagers sold a Bandit Trans Am (Lot #449). We also saw the demand for trucks grow, along with top-tier custom vehicles that had been professionally restored or modified.”

With a diverse variety of offerings, some of Barrett-Jackson’s 2017 Northeast sales included;

“Our Northeast Auction has evolved into an exciting automotive lifestyle event that’s unrivaled in the region,” said Steve Davis, Barrett-Jackson president. “We’re also the barometer for the collector car market and are the first to identify changes in the market. We intentionally design our dockets to capitalize on these emerging trends and create the best possible experience for our bidders.”
