The auctions in Scottsdale are a big deal, to say the least; the Monterey auctions are Scottsdale’s only real peer in terms of quality and volume. Half a dozen different companies draw people from across the world to buy, sell or just gawk at the cars that make up everything from the teeming mass of automobiles at Barrett-Jackson and the carefully selected pieces of rolling sculpture at Gooding & Company. Last year, a total of 2,500 cars hammered sold for a grand total of almost $293 million, with four of them selling for more than $5 million. It was a high-water mark for the Scottsdale sales, and while the 2016 catalogues don’t quite match the overall quality of last year, there are still numerous significant cars worth well into six-figure territory.
