2017 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas: Many Wants, Some Oddballs

The 2017 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction will run from October 19th to the 21st. As with any Barrett-Jackson auction, there will hundreds of very interesting cars going to the auction block. There will be three Ford GTs and a 918 Spyder in Brad’s favorite (sarcasm) Martini livery. Add to that the standard Lambos, Ferraris, and Aston supercars. But there is more, a lot more. 
There are a number of custom cars and rat-rods. The one that stood out the most to me was this ’72 Caddy “wagon” which has six wheels in a Tyrell P34-like configuration. There are several recreation vehicles, so such this really cool ’75 Airstream Argosy. Classic pickups are dime-a-dozen but there is only one fire truck, ’52 Pumper Engine. One vehicle that should look familiar is the Clarion-created Acura NSX, which you have seen here, here, here, and here
It’s important to note is that the entire sale price of a 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake will go to a special fund that supports Las Vegas first responders and those affected by the recent tragedy. See the full list of vehicles here and tell us your favorites.

    I might have been interested in Lot 114.1 so I could take it to car shows and display it as “Trailer formerly owned by Cal Worthington, as featured on Barrett-Jackson” but no, it’s only available as a package deal with Lot 114, the car sitting on it. I don’t have anything against the Model T, but I really want a TT truck instead.

      It is a nice trailer, suitable for carrying three of your vehicles at a time.

        I doubt I could bring myself to actually use a trailer with such impressive provenance.
        But if I did, four.

    There are some cool things here, amidst all the late model Mercedes SLs that previously ferried their sexagenarian owners to the country club for lunch. I’ll take this one…

      Good lordy, how did I miss that?

      That is awesome, but agreed, the tranny is a no-go. Gotta be a manual.

    If I was going to build a hot rod it would be a early 50s GM car. Just not in this color and the interior console would have to go. https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1951-CHEVROLET-DELUXE-CUSTOM-COUPE-211155 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/62ec5b88c8be5a5c5c200e8074452d701e4bf0ff44d71058e09a3b993fc9592c.png
    On the other hand there is a nice looking MGTD which would be more fun to bomb around the moutain roads where I live.

      Shame about the painted chrome

        I could live with that for awhile, but this interior would be the first project. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bf31c191dfa37cbf1326091574bd53f2febe8f6ce41c5d2a8c36747b75a37968.png

      My dad and I restored a ’50 coupe (this is a ’51) several years ago, but we kept all of the chrome and painted the body in a very pale tan. I love the look of those cars (though I’d prefer a ’53 Pontiac fastback). Dad still has the car, but regrettably rarely drives it.

    I can’t be the only one wanting that awesome 1952 FWD fire engine. So cool.

    The wheels belong on a 10 year old lifted F150 driven by a 17 year old, but that would be easily remedied.
