    Default Barrett - Jackson Scotsdale, AZ 2012

    It looks like I'll be at Barrett - Jackson in Scottsdale AZ next week. I should be there Wednesday - Friday.

    I have been helping an elderly lady in town for a few years. Her husband passed away a few years ago and I have been taking care of her classics. A 1929 Model A, 1967 Corvette, and a 1970 AAR Cuda. It's a tough job but somebody needs to drive these cars. LOL Anyway these were her husband's toys and it's time for her to move on so they are getting auctioned at Barrett - Jackson.

    I was going to take my trailer and camp in the parking lot but Barrett - Jackson said no. So I'll be staying at a friends house down in Phoenix.

    The black 1929 Model A goes on the block Thursday between 5 & 7 pm. The silver 1967 Corvette convertible and the Vitamin C orange 1970 AAR Cuda go up back to back on Friday between 3 & 5 pm.

    This is my 1st year being a part of Barrett - Jackson. I went a few years ago as a spectator. So I have no idea what I'm in store for. I'm bringing the Fat Rat (50 Chevy truck) just for the fun of it. It's an old truck that doesn't compare to the caliber of restoration as the cars in Barrett - Jackson but I'm proud of it since I built it my self with the help of my friends. So hopefully it doesn't get any door door dings out in general parking.

    No phone calls as of yet.

    I'm leaving the trailer at home and just taking the truck since Barrett Jackson won't let me dry camp in the parking lot. See you on Thursday.

    I got my pass into Barrett Jackson today.

    I'm getting my truck ready for my trip south for the week.

    That one isn't going to Barret Jackson. The 3 cars that we are auctioning at Barrett belong to a friend who is in her 70's. Her husband passed away a few years ago so I've been taking of the cars for her. I have my own alarm code and keys to her garage. In trade for taking care of her cars I can use her garage anytime. The lift comes in real handy.

    The Cobra was given to her son as her husband passed away. Mike hardly drives it so I'm forced to drive it to keep the battery charged. LOL

    Her garage is so empty with the Model A, Cuda and the Vette not there. It's kind of sad. I'll miss those cars. I've had a lot of fun with those cars over the years.

    Don't know why but the first thing that popped in my head when I read that was Ferris Bueller's Day Off as they had the car in reverse trying to reverse the mileage...

    Truck is packed. Leaving in about an hour for Scottsdale to spend the rest of the week at Barrett Jackson. Since I have an UN-smart phone I won't be online much. Talk to you on Sunday.

    Marcel I'll see you tomorrow.
