My Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas odyssey

Would you like to know in how to hire a direct carrier?

Last week I fired up my Mini Cooper and headed to Las Vegas for the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction. It’s a five-hour drive from my home in Phoenix to Las Vegas and in the ensuing three auction days I ended up walking 14.92 miles around the Las Vegas Convention Center. It was a funky adventure filled with awesome cars, good people and a couple of celebrities. 

I love my job. I get to write about cars for a living and occasionally travel to auctions outside of the Valley of the Sun. Covering an auction is a whirlwind; so many cars to see, lots of good people and fellow collector car fans, and it’s like Disneyland for gearheads. If you have the opportunity go to a Barrett-Jackson auction, you won’t regret it.
