For years, Barrett-Jackson has been known for its Scottsdale, Palm Beach, Las Vegas and Northeast classic car auctions. This week, the company announced a new location — Houston, Texas — with a sale planned to take place there from September 16-18, 2021.
“We’re incredibly excited to head out to Houston this fall for our first collector car auction in Texas, said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Enthusiasts across the region, especially Texans, have a deep passion for collector cars. Only a few years ago, my search for the lost 1967 Ford Shelby EXP 500 prototype dubbed ‘Little Red’ led me to North Texas, where I found the fabled Mustang. There’s an unmistakable car culture in Texas, and we’re looking forward to fueling that passion with our inaugural Houston Auction in September.”
The event will take place within the NRG Center — a sprawling 706,000 square-foot facility that’s already fitted with on-site production facilities and the infrastructure needed for a sale of Barrett-Jackson magnitude. It also offers plenty of parking and outdoor acreage for a large number of both consignments and attendees — just the thing for a sale that’s likely to rival the Palm Beach and Las Vegas events in size.
