Jim’s Blog: Arizona in Images

I spent my week in Arizona bouncing from sale to sale, documenting as much as I could with my camera between making assignments for the next issue of ACC and meeting with our writers, contributors, and readers. Here are some of my favorite shots from this year’s Arizona auctions.

  1. Jim,
    Sorry that I missed you during the auction action that only AZ can host. I was able to sell my 1979 L-82 4sp Corvette at Barrett Jackson on Monday. I was very nervous going on a non-tv day so early in the week, but was very happy with the hammer price of 10k. I was also surprise to see the house was sold out and it looked like most of the seats were filled from where I stood on stage. However, what do you think of a week long sale? Is to much of a good thing, still to much?
