“The golden era of ’60s and ’70s cars produced fantastic canvases for custom builds,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “When these vehicles rolled off the assembly line nearly 50 years ago, they were celebrated for their bold looks and engineering. Today, they’re being used by talented craftsman to bridge the design of the past with technology of today. The vehicles consigned for our Scottsdale Auction are some of the very best examples built by top names to the high standards collectors expect from today’s custom vehicles.”

“The resources available for automotive craftsman to create their ‘rolling art’ are unprecedented,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “When contemporary tech, parts and tools are combined with the unbelievable talent of these artisans, classic cars are transformed into timeless masterpieces. For those seeking a true, one-of-one vehicle for their collection, our Scottsdale Auction should already be on their calendar.

Drifting at the Scottsdale Auction

The Barrett-Jackson teamed up with Pennzoil and World Champion drifter and professional “fun-haver” Vaughn Gittin Jr. to film “No Reserve Drifting,” a wild drifting video shot on-site at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Gittin is shown piloting his 2017 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR, shod with Nitto NT555 G2 tires, through harrowing hairpin turns and calculated donuts that demonstrate his natural dexterity behind the wheel.
