First I brought you Part I, then I brought you Part II, and finally here's Part III. But to recap...
The weekend of September 25-27, Barrett Jackson is holding their final auction of 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. Like most of their other auctions (I firmly believe that Reno has to become a little more established), the docket for Las Vegas fell nothing short of excellence.
