This June will see the classic car auction managed by Barrett-Jackson make a return to Orange County in California, where many vintage vehicles will be fought for by big spending collectors from across the country and indeed the world.
From the 22nd to the 24th of June, various lots will be going under the hammer, with live high def TV covered provided by broadcaster Speed, so even if you cannot make it over to the event, it will be possible to see the cars rolling through into the bidding hall.
The four day auction will be preceded by a number of celebratory events, including a classic car cruise taking place on June 17th.
The cruise is free to participate in and watch, although money will be raised for charities, thanks to the proceeds of refreshments being sold to those attending.
Barrett-Jackson spokesperson, Craig Jackson, said that the events would help to exemplify the importance of car culture in Southern California, while also providing families and visitors with plenty to do outside of the auto-related goings on.
The auction firm has been operating since 1971, where it was founded in Arizona, with the express idea of helping to sell classic cars to collectors.
