Photos from this year's Barrett Jackson

This was the sixth time in a row going to Barrett-Jackson for me, and I think it had some of the best pick of cars I have ever seen. Though there were no exciting 1 million plus cars, there were plenty of things for me to drool over.

The most exciting car for me was the AMG Hammer wagon, but the Blisterene was also a major drooler for me.

Photos:

Whoever gets these hammers is going to be a happy camper. Both look to be in fantastic condition.

The AMG's have never been to my liking. Too geh-toh for me, but that red one is gorgeous. What is it? You're lucky you weren't at that *other* show when the storm hit.

Same here, the new stuff doesn't interest me at all. I went to the Detroit Auto Show yesterday and really didn't see anything I would like to own.

No it wasn't. Paint was pretty rough too up close, but I suppose the one in ghostbusters would of had its patina as well.
