Anyone going to Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale next weekend?

I'm planning to go there. My little brother is going to bid on a car.
Would love to meet up any fellow member going there.

Can't wait to see what the Jimmy's will go for.

Wish I could go but no dice. I took a look and there are four or five 69-72 Blazers and Jimmys on the docket. Most of them are restomods, including this one:

It will be interesting to see if the current bull market for vintage SUVs continues to escalate.

I land Thursday morning. Going Thursday to Saturday. Flying out Sunday.
Got my bidder paddle, buying something for my little brother.

Any one local with recommendations for a great brewery to stop by at? My buddy is a beer maker and we both like to check out new breweries or has with great taps.

For good beer, you need to come to Canada. Tons of micro-breweries.

I saw that! It was restored and had a crate engine in it. I thought they did a nice job on that truck!
$78k with the auction fees.

The resto mod (lifted etc) k5's went for high dollars too...

Next few days will be interesting!

Do Jimmys all have GMC stamped in the grille AND letters on the hood right above it too? That doesn't look right to me

That is an earlier grill I personally don't like it..

Re: Anyone going to Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale next weekend?

I have a 72, it doesn't have that grille. Here is mine when I got it. 100% original and as it came out of the factory. The black paint that normally is filled into the recesses of thelogo and in the grille has faded in this pic.
