Rick's On the Road

Rick and a friend flew to Palm Beach, Florida yesterday morning for three days. They will be attending the Barrett Jackson Auction. Rick was pretty fired up about this. He has watched it on television for years; that's the only reason I even knew what it was when he said he was going. Although it is labeled as an automobile auction, other items including trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, and engines are sold at the auction. Starting in 2007, the auction also sold boats, rock and roll memorabilia, and other things. It is widely believed that the high visibility of the auction has caused the prices of vintage cars to rise greatly in the last several years.

You can check out some of the cars to be auctioned at the Gallery.

P.S. I told him to sit on his hands during the auction each day!
