Barrett-Jackson 2019

Do not miss the 48th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at Westworld Scottsdale January 12-20th. While driving through McDowell Mountain Ranch this week, you may notice the many historical and luxury cars in town for the auction, and it’s hard not to notice the big white tents as you are driving by the 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright.
