BARRETT-JACKSON LIVE AUCTION ON HISTORY CHANNEL

Barrett-Jackson, regarded as the world’s premiere circuit collector car auction, returned to Palm Beach County last month for its annual auto auction at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The highly anticipated automotive event delivered excitement for enthusiasts, collectors, and casual spectators alike. The event was broadcast live on History Channel for seven hours. Meanwhile, FYI Network broadcast 13 hours of live coverage and 18 hours of re-aired coverage, while Barrett-Jackson’s website broadcast the entire 28.5-hour event. 

Among the stars of the show was a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am that was personally owned by Burt Reynolds. The Bandit’s Bandit was carefully restored by Bandit Movie Cars to Reynolds’ specifications. Every detail was thought out and discussed with Reynolds, from the correct antenna to the proper tires from the Smoky and the Bandit movie. It is the only licensed and tagged Reynolds’ Trans Am left.

The Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission was on-location and showcased the event on its social media pages. The combined posts attracted thousands of views and spotlighted the production value of this pillar event in The Palm Beaches. For television viewers and tourists, the auction offered a glimpse into the thrilling world of collector cars and automotive culture. Whether tuning in for live coverage or exploring the event in person, Barrett-Jackson's Palm Beach auction is a must-see for car enthusiasts of all ages.
