    2009 Barrett-Jackson Auction Scottsdale

    Yeah it's that time again. Speed TV is covering six days of the auction this year and I tuned it and I know some of the other members on here like to watch too. So here is a thread where we can discuss it and the cars being auctioned.

    Here is a link to the car list for each day. Happy watching to everyone!

    Yeah I loved that Impala wagon they auctioned off earlier in the day. They dropped a 'vette engine in it and would use it as a chase car when they did test runs while developing Corvettes. I read a column in Car and Driver or Automobile by one of the guys who drove it and he liked that car so much he bought an old Caprice wagon and put a crate motor in it. That thing must be something.

    Watching it is fine when the television is set to mute.

    There's no such thing as a 997 Turbo S.

    I thought that too.
    996 and 993 had the Turbo S trim in the final part of their lives.

    I also couldn't believe that Kaiser Darrin went for $160k! Those things have a whimpy Willys engine. I know they are rare but I did not think they were very desirable.

    People pay stupid money for rarity.
