Barrett Jackson Palm Beach

The spring 2015 Barrett Jackson auction in West Palm Beach, Florida was one for the books. With over 500 “no reserve” cars going across the block, it was an exciting weekend. I had the privilege to work with TDC Agency, a Barrett Jackson endorsed insurance provider.


As far as the auction goes, the trends continue. High-quality restorations and high-quality modified cars are bringing good money. Muscle cars make up a pretty good chunk of what went across the block. Because of the multiple generations that adore them, they are always a hot seller.


There were also plenty of deals to be had. Don’t let the auction intimidate you. Lots of cars sold for under $20,000. I met a lot of first time auction buyers. The excitement they had bidding and winning their dream cars is second to none. There is literally something for everybody. High end luxury cars like Bentleys, custom street rods, muscle cars, both stock and modified, and a long list of unique old cars that fit perfectly in the collector car hobby.


If you’re not in the market to buy, just going to an auction as a spectator is worth it. It is as much of a car show as it is an auction. A Barrett Jackson auction should be on everyone’s bucket list.
