It seems like the 2022 Arizona Auction week is still a long way away, but it’s not.
The first lot will roll across Barrett-Jackson’s stage in the massive WestWorld tent on January 22, 2022.
It might take you a couple weeks to wade through all the Arizona Auction Week online catalogs, but that’s a fun way to get ready for the start of the 2022 collector car year.
This year, Barrett-Jackson, RM Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Gooding & Company and Worldwide Auctioneers have full auction dockets.
Here are a few details on each auction:
Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction is the biggest event of the week, with well over 1,000 cars set to cross the block at WestWorld of Scottsdale from January 22-30.
A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing — at no reserve — is one of the star cars.
Linkage is producing two free seminars for Barrett-Jackson’s Behind the Hobby series this year:
“Future Collectibles,” hosted by Linkage Managing Editor Jim Pickering, will single out cars that are expected to grow in popularity during the next few years. This seminar is scheduled for January 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Equidome, which is near the main auction stage.
“The Market,” hosted by Linkage Publisher Donald Osborne, will explore the increasingly complicated collector car market. Our panel will help you know what questions to ask when buying a collector car — and what to do with your car after it comes home with you. This seminar is on January 27 from 9:30 a.m to 10:30 a.m. in the Equidome.
Both events will be live streamed on Barrett-Jackson’s site — and on linkagemag.com.
WestWorld of Scottsdale is located at 16601 North Pima Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85360. For more information, including the online catalog, visit www.barrett-jackson.com
