2017 Barrett Jackson NorthEast at the Mohegan Sun.


   We came equipped with bidder and media passes to the 2017 Barrett Jackson Northeast at Mohegan Sun. The location from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada was an easy 700 kms south, or 437 miles. 

    The big finale on Saturday had us glued to our seats. Once again, all brands and years were represented on the four day event. Sixty minutes after the first car crossed the block you could not find a seat. With many cars  over 100K, it was certainly and impressive sale!

    Although many people were from the local surrounding areas of New York, Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts, bidders and attendees came from all over the the US and Canada to view this spectacle of collector cars and automobilia.

    The Mohegan Sun venue would rival any in Vegas. We even took our turn at some black jack, roulette and the occasional slot machine while taking in the spectacular ambience inside the casino. The Barrett Jackson/Mohegan Sun partnership solidified itself in just the second event together with sell-out crowds and a full docket.

    Barrett Jackson charity auctions are now closing in on $100M over their 47 years of business. Darrell Gwynn’s Charity was the recipient of a $50,000 hammer price of Lot #3002, a super-custom Ford Transit Connect.

    Here are just a few sights from our experience on Saturday from the block.
