A look back to the 1991 Scottsdale Auctions

I was digging through some old photos and came across these images that I took back in 1991 at the Barrett-Jackson auction. Back at this time, Barrett-Jackson only had one sale a year and folks like Tom Barrett were still alive. Since most of the auction companies seen in Arizona today were not yet on the scene, Barrett-Jackson attracted more premium cars back then (I think Tom Barrett also played a hand in this).

Regardless, it's amazing to see what showed up back then.
