Sorry this one is out of focus. Maybe I'll do a makeup today when the light is better.

Carroll signed the license plat cover

Gary Patterson was the guard and he was nice enough to take down the ropes so I could get some better quality photos.

Thanks for the pics. Looks like the weather is lousy but the cars look good even wet.

 

 

 

I'm going to start sorting and uploading this afternoon.

 

It was wet and "cold" (well, relatively). This morning I woke up with a full-blown head cold. I felt it coming on Sunday AM after walking around in the rain Friday night for an hour looking for my car.

OK. I'm starting to upload the pictures from the week. I'm trying to arrange them by related groups. At the end I will post some others just collected by day.

 

First up are some what I put into the category of "non automobile and other things".

 

 

I remember seeing these around way back in the 60's. This Amphicar sold for $45K. It was interesting to see a vehicle with license plates and boat tags :)

There is a separate auction that goes on for "automobilia". The trophy is the SCCA that went to Shelby and Ford. It sold for about $3500.

This was the display for the airplane. I didn't get may photos of the booth.

One of the featured cars on the cover art was the Blastolene "Tank Car". The engine is a tank engine. They found two of the engines and built two cars.

 

Jay's link here: http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/segment/under-the-hood/tank-car-1/

 

 

It ended up selling for $255K which I doubt came even close to the cost of putting it together. Hopefully they made out on Leno's :)

There were a whole bunch of Shelby GT350s and GT500s at the auction. These two had been singled out and were at the front of the Expo area next to the Cobras.

 

Both were impeccably gorgeous.

 

 

The white one (lot 1302) was the first production 66.

The red one (lot 1266) was one of two (a green one, later) owned and sold by the same guy.

First, 1266:

:hysterical2: Lets not go there!

 

 

Yeah, it happened to everyone! After closing the biggest lot they started shoving them into the lot assigned to me. Then I got there late on Friday so it was full. I knew where it was and thought there was a way through to cross the road over. NOT. The chicken wire fence went all the way around so I had to trudge all the way back and over. There was still water in the ditches. I should have just taken off my shoes and socks and crossed - I'd have the same cold I have now but my feet wouldn't have hurt so much :)

Here are two mustangs that happened to go when I was close by.

 

I can't believe someone would pay this much for what is an admitted clone.

While I was nearby a Ford GT went across the block too. I didn't get pictures but did get the price. There were two nearly identical ones. Never did see the second one.

 

DSC_6644.jpg

 

Carnut thought this was the car I almost bought last year. It's not but very close. I thought it looked pretty nice.

There was a Barrett Jackson SGT convertible that was a charity donation to the Cox (cable) charities in Arizona.

 

It's a cloth interior car.

It was a charity donation with lots of little kids. Are there little kids in this picture ? :)

Feel sorry for the person in that suit. No visibility since they were leading him/her around like a blind person. Must have been hot inside too.

Alice Cooper sold two cars.

 

The Challenger R/T went for $66K. The Absolutely Gorgeous low mileage GTO convertible went for only $62.7K. (On these I didn't get down to get the hammer price photo). Each car came with a guitar signed by Alice. At one point he just started strumminb it.

 

Notice Bary Bennett in a jacket that matches the inside of the trunk.

Here are some miscellaneous shots from "around the grounds". Nothing specific.

 

So I think it was Thursday I'm looking at the cars in the Expo tent and noticed some commotion. Turns out there was a "missing car slot" roped off, and.... A wedding. I wonder what that space cost?

Can't remember his name but this is the Speed guy.

I mentioned that the weather was crappy and that they had closed one of the big parking lots.

 

DSC_6488.jpg

 

This is the lot that was closed. It's one of the biggest. It's a polo field (Westworld is used as a horse show arena). The polo field is also a drainage retention pond. It worked.

Lots of vendors selling all kinds of different things :)

I was getting a shot of some car and got one candid shot of the Barrett Jackson Models. Then they all lined up and posed for me!

Stuff: Milk cans with tractor seats. See what you can do with junk? Now there probably aren't any milk cans or tractor seats left so these are probably made in China. :)

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and the Shelby Foundation are auctioning a Super Snake with proceeds to their charities. This is Jordin signing autographs.

Jordin and Jenni Shreeves

The car. I took a few pictures for Jenni. I never got to look up close at a SS. Wow, they are cool.

Both Ford and GM always have big displays, including cars you can drive, or fast cars you can ride in. This is one of the Bondurant Racing School Corvettes. Bondurant's school is in the valley (Chandler, I think.)

Neon lights and gas pumps make good pictures.
