Before rumbling cars enter the staging lanes, the auctioneer’s voice begins to sing out over the speakers. The rhythmic hymn highlights an exceptional range of automotive memorabilia crossing the block. At the 2022 Scottsdale Auction, incredible pieces of automobilia crossed the block with No Reserve. Everything from vintage gas pumps to neon dealership signs made an appearance, making Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction memorable.
