Default 2014 Scottsdale Barrett Jackson Car Show

Anyone able to make it out the Scottsdale, Az Barrett Jackson this year? Here are a few of the top sellers of the weekend:



A 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 (above), one of only 20 made and the only one that’s red-on-red, sold for $3.85 million with the 10 percent bidder fee on top of the $3.5 million price.



A 1969 L88 Corvette race car known as “The Rebel” sold for $2.86 million (which includes the bidder fee). One of the most successful road racers of all time, The Rebel set records that stood for decades.



A restored Amos Minter 1957 Ford Thunderbird was bought for $330,000. A stunning vehicle in Gunmetal Gray over red, it was equipped with the E Series dual 4-barrel carburetor setup and was one of only 4 percent of T-birds that year to be equipped with a manual transmission.



A 2014 COPO Camero drag race car (like the one above) sold for $700k on behalf of the Achilles Foundation of Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.



NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick paid $650,000 for the right to buy the first production example of the new Z/28 Camaro. All the proceeds from that sale went to Cornerstone Schools in Detroit.



Ford Motor Co., also auctioned off the first retail example of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT for $330k. The proceeds from that sale went to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
