Can you hear it? It’s the purring of pristinely restored engines and the classic car collectors who love them. Barrett-Jackson’s 17th Annual Palm Beach Auction rolls into Palm Beach County April 11-13, 2019 at the Palm Beach County Fairgrounds. More than 800 classic and restored vehicles are on the docket and this year’s auction offers many low-mileage muscle cars and cars built in the last 25 to 30 years.
In a recent interview, Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson said, “What’s especially exciting about these collector vehicles is that they’re bringing younger buyers into the hobby, which is a wonderful indication of the health of the market.” And for the second time, The Palm Beaches TV will air segments highlighting the fan experience beyond the auction block at one of Palm Beach County’s premier events, showcasing the variety of food, vendors and families who converge during the three-day event for auto enthusiasts. In addition to seeing hundreds of impeccably restored vintage cars and trucks, fans can dare to participate in an adrenaline-pumping ride on a closed course at the Dodge Thrill Rides attraction, or visit Autogeek Detail Fest where they can take a hands-on demonstration of the latest waxes, tools, pads and protectants. Billed as “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions”®, last year’s auction in The Palm Beaches resulted in $39.4 million in sales and was also fueled by an autograph session with Palm Beach’s favorite son, the late Burt Reynolds, in one of his final public appearances.
