But, coincidentally, we arrived in the area at the same time as “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction”, produced by Barrett-Jackson, “the world’s leading collector car auction and automotive lifestyle events”. In addition, our RV campground was in Fountain Hills, very close to the location of the event, Scottsdale.
But Hector and I spent a few hours there and focused on the classic collector cars in the main tent area. Even though there were several tents we never even entered, we still saw a dizzying array of autos.
Although I don’t know a lot about collector cars, I do know what I like. I like antique cars, and I liked a lot of the cars we saw. There were some truly artistic people designing automobiles in the United States years ago. They paid such attention to little details, many of which are still standouts.
The colors were truly amazing, the brightest colors I’d ever seen on autos. And, of course, all of the cars had tons of clear coats applied on top of the paint to make them ultra-shiny.
This was definitely a spontaneous choice by us, and not something we expected to do, but we figured we might never coincide with The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction again. And it was a really fun afternoon.
