Overview

Tom Barrett had a 1933 Cadillac V-16 Town Car he wanted to sell; Russ Jackson came to see it. How this simple meeting between two car buffs in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1960 started what would someday be the most prestigious collector car auction in the world is the story told in Barrett-Jackson: The World's Greatest Collector Car Event. Highlighting some of the most important collector cars ever offered, and featuring photographs from Barrett-Jackson’s extensive collection, this book follows the unfolding of a lifelong friendship and partnership–and the building of a brilliant tradition. From the 1967 fund-raiser " "Fiesta del los Auto Elegance" " to the first classic car auction in 1971, from the trend- (and record-) setting events that made their name to the high-tech, family-run enterprise Barrett-Jackson has become, the book chronicles a legend built on a mutual passion–an American success story founded on that most American of icons, the classic car.

Broadcast on SpeedTV for 33 hours in 2005, the 35th annual Barrett-Jackson auction was more than an auction of the world's finest cars - it's become a media sensation, with great ratings and repeat airings over the past year. This book is an incredible collectible for anyone who loves collector cars - from the one-of-a-kind prototype concept cars that command millions, to cars with an amazing celebrity pedigree, to the rarest original condition muscle cars hot today - it's all here. Author Larry Edsall interviewed the Barretts and the Jacksons and combed through their archives to create a stunning tribute to the people and cars behind the world's top car event.

The Flying Lady, July-Aug., 2007

“Profusely illustrated with crisply reproduced color photos.”

New Zealand Classic Car (NZ), August 2007

This is how a model ‘autobiography’ should be presented.”
