It’s undeniable that collector cars are the driving heartbeat of any Barrett-Jackson event, but each day kicks off with the auction of some impressive elements of the past, and hundreds of pieces of colorful, eye-catching and in-demand automobilia made their way across the block during the morning’s Automobilia Auction. The action heated up during the lunch hour with a bidding war for one of coolest signs offered on Tuesday — a rare 1940s Greyhound Bus Lines “Greyhound” bus depot tin sign with an animated neon dog (Lot #8492.4). When the gavel finally fell, this show-stopping restored sign sold for $149,500.

Additional top sellers were a 1930s Standard Oil neon porcelain sign (Lot #8495.2), which sold for $59,800, and a 1930s Musgo Michigan’s Mile Maker glass gas globe (Lot #8384) and 1930s Shell Oil neon porcelain sign (Lot #8497), which sold for $57,500 each. A 1950s Mobil Oil porcelain sign with animated neon (Lot #8499) sold for $50,600; and rounding out the Top 6 was a 1950s Husky Gasoline “Husky Dog” porcelain sign (Lot #8404.7) that sold for $46,000.

A full docket of collector vehicles kept the auction arena filled throughout the evening. Top sales included Lot #182, a 1932 Ford Model A Custom Roadster that sold for $80,300; Lot #197, a 1967 Pontiac GTO that sold for $77,000; Lot #144.1, Roy Rogers’ 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible, Lot #195, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom Coupe and Lot #211, a 1971 Ford Bronco Custom SUV, which sold for $71,500 each; and Lot #166, a 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible that sold for $70,400.

The dynamic energy that permeated the arena was matched at the Barrett-Jackson Performance Track, where guests were treated to adrenaline-fueled spins in a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody or a sporty GR Supra as part of the Dodge and Toyota Thrill Rides, respectively. The tire-shredding rides showcased the vehicles’ power and handling ability as they burned rubber around the twisting track, going from 0-60 in mere seconds.

For another edge-of-your-seat ride, the popular RAM TRX Off-Road Experience tests the limits and extremes of what the all-new Dodge pickup can do. Pro Baja drivers navigated passengers through challenging course filled with jumps, a steep incline and uneven terrain that showcased the truck’s suspension, Head-Up Display and wheel articulation. Thrill Rides and the Off-Road Experience will continue through Sunday.

From expert-led symposiums to live entertainment, shopping, dining and, of course, the main attraction — the daily collector car auctions — there’s a lot going on around the expansive site at WestWorld of Scottsdale. It’s no wonder Barrett-Jackson is The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions. Enjoy the gallery below with highlights from today’s event, and join us Wednesday for another exciting auction day.
