Barrett-Jackson automobile auction in Scottsdale today live on TV



Speed channel. Easily the best car auction on the planet and this is the prime day. Got some awesome cars going for auction today. Anyone else watching?

Clark Gable's Gullwing. Im guessing this will be 2 million plus some change





The rarest Shelby of all time. The Green Hornet

I can see this going for somewhere around the 2 million range. Really depends who gets in on the bidding. If it becomes a war between Ron Pratt and someone else of his wealth, the price could be through the roof.



The original Batmobile. Yep the first one from the show is finally going for sale. I cant even guess what this will go for. Its an icon, maybe THE icon of tv/movie cars but I can see this going for a million or so. Sounds like a lot but a million at this car show is chump change.

If my husband was not at the duck camp right now he would be watching this. We have family/friends in Arizona and he would love to go in person just to watch.

The Batmobile will disappoint.

Those cars have been so faked nobody believes anything about any of them.

i always enjoy pratt and allan jones bidding against each other. both always stay very calm and neither is flamboyant. jones has been known to call in from his jet and purchase cars on his way there. he founded check into cash. pratt sold his framing and foundation company to Pulte homes for $350 mil in cash and stock and cashed out right before the housing crash. he was one of the few who saw the writing on the wall.
