Despite the Northeast’s large population and numerous auto enthusiasts, there haven’t traditionally been many collector car auctions in that region. There is Bonhams’ Greenwich sale as well as sales in Harrisburg/Hershey, but that’s about it. The muscle car crowd isn’t particularly interested in Greenwich, and the Pennsylvania auctions are a little too far away for most New Englanders. Barrett-Jackson’s inaugural Northeast sale, then, was definitely something new and exciting. Held at the Mohegan Sun resort and casino that’s located about halfway between Boston and New York, the sale achieved $30,378,920 in total sales, and 574 vehicles sold for an average price of $52,925. For reference, Barrett-Jackson’s last sale in West Palm Beach achieved $27 million.
