This coming June 23 up to June 25, excited vintage car enthusiasts will be gathering at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. Why? Because Barrett-Jackson will host the first ever auction to happen in the Northeast, the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction. Barrett-Jackson is an auction company from Arizona and has been hosting popular classic car auctions for years now. 1970s and 1980s classic cars have been really popular this year, this is probably because people born at that era are starting to become collectors themselves, as what Craig Jackson said (CEO and Chairman of Barrett-Jackson).

“Collectors tend to migrate to what we lusted for growing up,” Jackson says. “When we began in the early ’70s, we were selling a lot of prewar classics and as time went on, there was an emergence of popularity for American muscle cars of the 1960s and early ’70s. Now we’re seeing some of these cars from the late ’70s, ’80s and the modern supercars rise in value as more Gen-X and Millennials grow in the collector car hobby.”

The Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction amazing barn finds that motor heads and classic car enthusiast will certainly enjoy. Several of the cars have been rebuilt and restored to their original conditions and a few cars have been customized to be a one off a kind masterpiece. Jackson said that some of the stars of the auction are very rare finds including a 2004 Ford GT Prototype, a 1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, and a 1956 Porsche 356A. “The hobby isn’t just about buying and selling automobiles,” he says. “People fall in love with the hobby and our events. We are a very fun group of mostly self-made people that share a zest for life and the automobile is how we connect.”
