Social media has expanded our reach into places otherwise rarely, if ever, visited. Each day, nearly half of the world’s population devotes an average of 2 hours and 23 minutes scrolling, liking, commenting and, yes, dreaming on various social media platforms. For the auto enthusiast, social media is a unique opportunity to learn, analyze, collate and document our favored automotive examples, from engine builds to one-off coachwork.
Just as the still lens and movie cameras of their day once did, video and advanced computer software now bring the world of the automobile to life with the click of a button.
In this day of “InstaBook,” we at Barrett-Jackson create social media content to sate appetites of gearheads everywhere. Barrett-Jackson’s social media platforms are many and varied, from curated collections of the rare and finest automobiles coming across the block, to ongoing builds and in-house restorations. We love to interact with our fans, whether it’s celebrating moments like the incredible charity sale of the very first mid-engine Corvette at our 2020 Scottsdale Auction or marveling at the technological know-how that goes into the latest Resto-Mods.
Ready to inject a little fuel into your Instagram feed? @barrett_jackson is here to help. We just crested the half-million followers mark and continue to grow. We’re betting you’ll put your phone down with a grin after checking out our Instagram stories or scrolling through our page. Find us on Instagram when you need a heady shot of petrol.
If you’re looking for some wrenching, then “Barrett-Jackson Builds” on Instagram is ready for you.
