Street Machines Bring the Big Bucks at Barrett-Jackson 2013!

-The Goodguys booth was a big hit with the "Tribute '32" Grand Prize Giveaway Car. These gals stopped by the booth for a peek

Goodguys once again had the pleasure of exhibiting at one of the world’s premier
classic automobile auctions – Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale @ Westworld. It was a great week of celebrating all things automotive while passing out our 2013 event schedules and showing off the Kindig-It Design-built “Tribute ‘32” Grand Prize Giveaway Car.

This year’s auction saw the usual wide array of rods & customs but featured a heavier dose of hi-profile Street Machines. When it came to the bidding, especially on “Super Saturday” – the Street Machines and Pro Touring cars brought the big dollars bringing back the good old days of Goodguys show-winners fetching upwards of $300,000. That trend had noticeably cooled in recent years but based on this year’s sale results is back at a fever pitch.

If you ever get the chance to attend Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale or any of their events for that matter – go! It’s exciting as well as educational! Here’s a look at some of this year’s signature sales (prices include commissions):

-1934 Ford “Flashback” custom roadster originally built by Rick Dore and finalist for the Goodguys West Coast Custom of the Year award, sold for $74,800.00
