What a week to be in Arizona. Governor Jan Brewer declared a state of emergency yesterday following the worst storm that AZ has seen in decades, and not only are we spending the next several days here, but we're actually going to be in a tent most of the time. Granted, Barrett-Jackson's tent is the largest ever built by man and can probably withstand quite a storm, but for some reason that doesn't make us feel much better.
Even so, the flooding, 50-mph wind gusts and tornadoes (yes, there was actually a tornado warning in Phoenix last night) won't stop us from covering the annual auction week here in Scottsdale. It took a six-hour, white knuckle drive from Los Angeles, but we're here and ready to soak in more fine classic cars than most people will see in their lifetime. We'll be covering all the highlights from the Barrett-Jackson and RM auctions this weekend. Be sure to check back during the next few days for our live coverage, keep an eye on this page for updates, and browse through our preview gallery below.
