Every living, breathing human being who attends this famous event experiences the same fervor, the same passion, the same excitement whether you are in attendance to purchase a classic vehicle or two, to compete with other bidders for one-of-a kind collections, or just to witness the attraction. Even Hollywood was present this year with the appearance of Stephen Tyler, Justin Beiber, Floyd Mayweather, Burt Reynolds, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Maybe that's why Route 66 has a visual presence there.

Vintage cars and nostalgia go hand-in-hand, just as Barrett-Jackson and Route 66 compliment each other.
Americana at its best -- our hats off and a patriotic salute to Barrett-Jackson and its counterpart, Route 66!
