Sometimes auctions come back for a reprise of a first time venue and struggle to produce the first year’s hype and results. Not so with Barrett-Jackson’s return for its second year at Houston’s NRG Center where the cars, the docket and the money were consistent with their first year in 2021. B-J makes a fetish […]

Las Vegas has long seemed like Barrett-Jackson’s spiritual home, a place where glitz and gambling are part of the atmosphere, where Barrett-Jackson’s showmanship and promotion fits like a glove. B-J’s clients have agreed, consigning 600-700 cars almost every year and seemingly effortlessly selling nearly everything that crossed the block even during the early 2010’s when […]

Barrett-Jackson came back with a bang from the delayed 2021 Scottsdale auction, but more significantly from the years before with their low $100 million sale totals, putting up a record total that eased over $200 million with automobilia. It wasn’t that long ago where every possible transaction was pulled into the total to break $100 […]

Houston’s NRG Arena has been a Mecum venue since 2012 with an April date … except for 2020 when everyone’s regular dates seemed to go out the window. It’s been a steady Mecum performer with consignments of 700-1,000 lots, solid sell through rates around 70% and total transactions running into the $20 million range (ignoring […]

Since its first event in 2008 Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction has been held at the Mandalay Bay in late September-early October. But no less than holding the Scottsdale extravaganza in March the Las Vegas date shifted to mid-June and at the new Convention Center. B-J can be glad it did because the $45,905,233 total (just […]

This report is updated with full auction results and changes to some of the transactions. Don’t let something like Covid-19 interfere with a long-standing tradition like Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction. Just push it back two months as Covid-fatigue and vaccinations of older Americans (B-J’s primary market) opens up the gates to WestWorld for bidders and spectators. […]

Barrett-Jackson’s second “Online Only” auction of 2020 followed closely the substance and Proxibid-based format of the first one, seven and a half weeks ago including the prevalence of reserves on most of the cars. The results were similar if slightly lower, although if B-J had found a home for its headline lot, a 2018 Ford […]

There’s a big gorilla in Scottsdale. It’s called Barrett-Jackson. The 2020 total not only was the best of all the Scottsdale auctions, it was the only one that increased from 2019 and it was Barrett-Jackson’s highest total ever. That’s in a year that’s showing modest but consistent declines from 12 months ago. Is there something […]

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” And while that may be appropriate for a philosopher it has little import for astute business managers, or at least those with larger minds.
