As we enter year three of a brutal pandemic, many in-person events still haven’t returned. Auto auctions are no exception, but 2022 promises to be a good year for well-heeled collectors and enthusiasts alike. Barrett-Jackson, one of the most recognizable names in the automotive world, is counting on strong demand from a car buying public tired of being couped up inside to power its 50th anniversary auction, taking place this week in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The event runs from last Saturday, January 22, through Sunday January 30. The anniversary festivities will include special video memories and other throwback segments throughout the event. Additionally, automakers and other sponsors will be on hand with vehicle experiences, product demonstrations, thrill rides, and live music. Celebrities will be on hand to auction vehicles for charity and some events will feature well-known automotive personalities such as Wayne Carini and Ken Lingenfelter.
