The 2008 Barrett-Jackson classic car auction is underway, and we will be reporting from Scottsdale to bring you live photos from the auction throughout this evening. The first four days have seen hundreds of vehicles sell for a variety of prices - everything from a 1992 Yamaha dirt bike that went for $2700 to Tony Stewart's Monte Carlo racecar that had a final price of $300,000. The premier vehicles of the event will be going across the block today including the very first 2008 Shelby GT500 KR, 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, and 2009 Corvette ZR1 that should all command high prices. Other cars capable of reaching high triple digit figures include two 1960s concept cars, the General Lee Dodge Charger, and Carroll Shelby's personal 1969 GT500 Convertible. The vehicle we are most looking forward to, though, is the car-crunching, fire-breathing Robosaurus.

Stay tuned this evening PST for auction results as well as live photos from our favorite vehicles.
