If you’ve been wanting to go behind the scenes at Barrett-Jackson, Bonhams or RM Sotheby’s, this is your chance: ClassicCars.com will again offer free tours of some of the biggest Arizona Auction Week sales.
The first tour takes place Tuesday, January 15 at noon at Barrett-Jackson at WestWorld in Scottsdale. The Bonhams tour is scheduled for Wednesday, January 16, at 1 p.m., at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale. The RM Sotheby’s tour is set for Thursday, January 16 at 10 a.m., at the Biltmore resort in Phoenix.
All of the tours are presented by Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Leading the tours is Andy Reid, East Coast editor and auction expert for the ClassicCars.com Journal. He bought his first car — a 1968 Fiat 124 — when he was 15 years old, and his second, on which he squandered his college savings, was a 1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2. Since then he’s owned more than 150 collector vehicles, including motorcycles.
He not only knows the vehicles, but has wonderful stories about his experiences behind the wheel and under the hood. He also knows the ins and outs of buying and selling at auction.
The tours are offered free of charge, though you do need to register so we know how many people to expect.
