To car nuts, “Barrett-Jackson Auction” translates into “Hurray!” Years ago, you had to travel to the western U.S. to attend these iconic events, but now they are as close as Palm Beach County. Year after year, the collection is consistently astounding, ranging from one-owner “barn finds” to rocket-powered drag cars, and everything in between. Have you always wanted a ‘70s era muscle car?

They are all here, along with unusual specimens such as the Yellow Submarine sold a few years ago (my wife duct-taped my hands to my side as that was being auctioned).
