Default Blown awawy by Barrett Jackson Auction

I attended the Barrett Jackson Auction on Thursday the 22nd….talk about being blown away! And, I mean literally blown away! The weather came steamrolling into the “Valley of the Sun” bringing with it blowing wind, driving rain, and to top it all off…a tornado warning. While walking through one of the adjoining tents that house most of the headliner cars to be auctioned off….security personnel came through telling everyone to vacate the tent and proceed to the main tent at once. You could see by the look in the eyes of a couple of the security people that they were really worried. I saw vendors packing up some of their items and other covering their items with plastic. You could see the tent structure actually moving quite a bit…but fortunately Barrett Jackson was shared. The same couldn’t be said for the Russo and Steele Auction where they lost parts of several large tents. Large parts of the tents went flying and landed on a freeway that runs nearby, closing that roadway for an hour or so…fortunately only one person received minor injuries…the same couldn’t be said for a number of cars set to be auctioned off. No word on how many and what damage was done, but I am sure we will soon learn all about the damages...
All in all it could have been a lot worst (unless of course it was one of your collector cars that were damaged).
When I got home I turned on Speed, and as they say “the show must go on”….they were still selling cars….go figure.
