Barrett-Jackson is taking its show on the road — literally.

The auction company has announced the launch of its Collector Car Road Tours, which will begin October 7-13 with a drive from Summit Racing in McDonough, Georgia, to Key West, Florida.

“The Barrett-Jackson experience has become something truly unique in the collector car world,” Craig Jackson, company chairman and chief executive was quoted in the announcement. “Our auctions are the heartbeat of this hobby, but the Barrett-Jackson experience encompasses so much more. 

“Our Collector Car Road Tours will be another example of how the Barrett-Jackson experience brings this community together to enjoy our shared passion for collector cars. We have some incredible stops and activities planned throughout the 2020 Tour. It promises to be a fun way to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow collectors and make memories that will last a lifetime.”

The auction company said it will offer a series of weeklong and weekend tours open to all types of collectible vehicles.

“The exact tour routes and hotel details are revealed when participants check in, but each will offer drivers the chance to enjoy their collector cars while exploring some of the most beautiful parts of the country,” the company said. 

“The Barrett-Jackson-led tours will combine scenic routes and visits to national landmarks and museums with exclusive activities and excursions to automotive-related businesses, as well as fine dining and luxurious hotels.
