Lot 56: 2006 Shelby Mustang GT-H

Barrett-Jackson 2008: Mustang & Ford Muscle Car List - Page 1

►Back To Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2008 Main Story Index

01-11-08: Here at TheMustangNews, we actually go out and inspect about 95% of the cars that will cross the block, carefully review them based on actual condition, restoration quality, and execution. Using the long term expertise and knowledge of vintage Mustangs and restoration we do our best to offer up our own rating between 1 and 10. This rating is of course an opinion, but offers a counterpoint to the summaries provided by sellers and the hype of television coverage.

As the week unfolds, you will see the “NR” postings which means “Not Yet Rated” eventually change as we make our rounds at this year’s event!

Tuesday 01/15/08: Sale prices have been posted. Money was smart today by-in-large. The top quality cars got good money, but the crazy "spend anything" atmosphere was not in the tent today for lesser cars. (Scroll Down For Sale Listings)

Wednesday 01/16/08: Sales are off to a good start. We are adding sale prices as they come. Prices seem notably softer than in years past on garden variety cars and re-creations. There were a couple of surprises at the end on the night with a stunning $82,000 sale on the 1978 Mustang II Drag Race Car of Dyno Don. (Scroll Down For Sale Listings)

Thursday 01/17/08: Sales are off to a good start. We are adding sale prices as they come. Good buys are happening out there as prices remain realistic across the board thus far. Jump To Thursday's Sale List

Friday 01/18/08: Sales eperienced the "crecendo effect" as the prices started to rise, cars got better. We saw a number of tripple digit sales today - a prelude to Saturday.Jump To Friday's Sale List

Saturday 01/19/08: Today is the BIG DAY! Saturday traditionally brings the best and brightest cars and the craziest sale prices. Today we have a number of huge cars coming across the block and will be bringing them to you all day long! Jump To Saturday's Sale List

Sunday 01/20/08: The money was obviously spent last night because the air is gone from the sails. Prices today are far more sober, hold for a few strong cars.Jump To Sunday's Sale List
