Third Time’s the Charm: Barrett-Jackson’s Latest Northeast Auction Smashes Records

5 years ago Events

The third running of the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction (June 20-23, 2018) concluded just days ago, setting numerous records and raising funds for several worthwhile charities. In particular, FCA/Dodge’s “Ultimate Last Chance” two-for-one-bid, no-reserve sale of the final production 2017 Dodge Viper and the final production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon generated an astonishing one million dollars for United Way, FCA/Dodge’s charity of choice for more than 60 years.

Your author (that’s me!) has been part of the live broadcast team since 2005 and this event marked my 46th televised show with the Barrett-Jackson/Velocity Channel TV team. When not busy describing what’s on the block, I sneak my trusty digital camera into the mix and grab pictures of special moments and cool cars. Here’s a review of some hot Challengers – vintage and new – and some behind-the-scenes shots from the “calm before the storm” set-up and preview period.
