History of the Barrett Jackson Auction
For more than four decades, Barrett-Jackson has been known as the world’s undisputed leader in collector car auctions. The legacy started in the 1960s as a meeting between two car enthusiasts, Russ Jackson and Tom Barrett. The early auctions, held in Scottsdale, AZ, were so popular that fellow collectors and car buffs across the country demanded their own auctions. In 2003, the first Palm Beach, FL, auction was held and in 2008 it was brought to Las Vegas, NV.
