Monied fans of Monster Garage gathered this week in Scottsdale, Arizona for the opportunity to own a piece of their favorite television show when the Barrett-Jackson auction house put 42 of the hot rod program's creations under the hammer.

Among the vehicles put up for auction were a Ferrari fitted with a pasta-maker, a flying Panoz Esperante, a Mustang lawn mower, a Porsche modified to collect golf balls, and an assortment of dragsters and custom lowriders. All in all, 42 custom street rods went on the block. Most of them, as could be expected, were American iron, but a modified Rolls-Royce, a 1999 Champ Car open-wheeler and even a steam-powered speed boat, all modified towards various aesthetic and functional ends, were rolled out for the event.

We've got images of all 42 custom rides in our gallery with descriptions of what you're looking at; you can check the short press release after the jump, and the full list right here.

Press Release

Monsters Go Under the Hammer
42 Monster Garage Cars Up for Auction

WHAT: Car aficionados and fans of the hit TV show Monster Garage now have the opportunity to own a piece of television history when 42 vehicles from the hit TV series Monster Garage will be on auction block beginning January 15th. Among the cars going under the hammer are the Ultimate Escalade Tailgater with a big screen TV, grill, drink dispenser and sound system loud enough to drown out the cheers of opposing fans. The Folsom Prison Low Rider a 1969 Chevy Impala built by a team made up from a select group of Folsom State Prison inmates. The Cool Caddy Daddy put together by Jesse James and six legendary customizers, including Darrel Starbird, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons even arrived for the design phase. 1951 was the year it was born. 2005 was the year it was reborn. Everyone said he couldn't do it, but Jesse James managed to take a $100,000 Panoz Esperante and create the Flying Car, whose first flight matched the success of the Wright Brothers'.

      I'll take the Datsun Honey Bee with the 350Z engine. Good episode.

      I'll take the fire truck brewery! Is that legal, driving around with a tank full of beer? Who cares! I can envision some serious "keg stands", using that hose!

      I really like the rusted Ford. Anti-bling.

      Monster Garage was a very entertaining show. The cars (I saw several myself at an exhibit) where finished of well.

      So many awesome cars to choose from. Thank you Jesse James! If I got my first pick I'd definitely take the Terminator Tundra. Failing that either the Hill Climber Chevy or the Sling Ray.

      I loved this show. This, plus Junkyard Wars and RAW was the best 3 hours of television you could watch on Mondays.

      Shining objects, can it be that americans will fall for this again. I personally think we can count on it.

      At least the 'Stang lawn mower went for $7200 or something like that. About right for a bad car badly modified by a minor celebrity.
