1955 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL GULLWING – SOLD! $$1,870,000
It’s time to make some room in your collection for more cars or you might be ready for something different to take to the concours or local cruise-in. Perhaps you have attended a Barrett-Jackson auction before, or maybe you have been watching the event on TV for a while and you have seen cars just like yours cross the block. It’s got you thinking, “My car is as nice as those, I wonder how it would do at an auction.”
Each Barrett-Jackson event attracts thousands of pre-qualified potential buyers that have all passed a stringent qualification process to ensure their bids can be backed up when your vehicle is sold on the block.
So how do you get started consigning your vehicle for the next auction? The first step is to submit a Preliminary Consignment Form, which helps Barrett-Jackson evaluate your car. There are several ways to do this.
1970 PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD – SOLD! $1,650,000
The easiest method of consigning is on our website. Just click on “Consign” on the home page. This will take you to where you can begin the online application process or explore information and additional options.
Start by inputting your contact information and vehicle details into the online form. Before consigning online, it’s important to gather all vehicle images and documentation in digital form. Scan both sides of your title. Know where the images and scans are located on your computer to avoid interruption.If you have multiple vehicles to consign, you may choose to register as a member on the website (top right of the page) and then log in. As a registered member, your contact information is automatically applied to each vehicle application, avoiding repetitive steps. When you click on “Consign” after logging in, you’ll be taken directly to the online consignment process.DOWNLOAD AND PRINT THE FORM
If you prefer to work on paper, there is also an option from the “Consign” page to download a printable consignment form, which you can fill out by hand and mail with all relevant information and photos.
1967 CHEVROLET CAMARO YENKO – SOLD! $632,500
You will need to submit a minimum of six photos, one of which needs to be the VIN. The more photos the better, with several different angles, so prospective buyers can get a good look at your vehicle prior to and during the auction from its online docket listing. Providing quality photographs of your vehicle before it crosses the block is an important step in submitting your vehicle for auction (see “How to Photograph a Car”for some pro tips).
SHORT AND LONG DESCRIPTIONS
We require that you submit two descriptions of your vehicle with your application:
Short Description: Appears in the docket list on our website as well as in our printed materials. Containing only about 25-30 words, this should focus on features and information that cannot be seen “from the curb.” You should list selling points that may not be immediately evident, such as “ground up restoration,” “fresh engine rebuild” or “twin turbo.”Long Description: This is where you can get into the details of your vehicle, as well as its provenance, if known. People love to read the backstories of cars. This description can be up to 300 words, and it can include restoration information, expenditures, major facets, modifications, history, awards and anything else you feel will add to the selling power of your vehicle. Mention any documentation you have to back up any claims, particularly with regard to custom vehicles. Also include basic information, like transmission type, engine size, etc. The long description will appear on the website docket listing and the “car card” that is on the windshield of the vehicle while it is displayed at auction. This description may also be used in marketing materials, and portions may be read by the auctioneers on the block, so it is crucial to mention the most important or impressive things first. Stick to the facts and avoid subjective terms and wild superlatives in your descriptions, such as “world’s greatest car.” Make sure to talk about your specific vehicle, not the marque in general. You want people to understand your car.Consignors are required to sign off on the vehicle description, signifying that it is their depiction of the vehicle and not Barrett-Jackson’s. Barrett-Jackson won’t embellish, change or deviate from the owner’s vehicle description. It is the owner’s representation of the car.
1963 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 327:360 Z06 SPLIT WINDOW COUPE – SOLD! $566,500
To effectively process your application, Barrett-Jackson will need a copy of both sides of your title. The scans must be completely legible.

BEYOND THE STRIP: Discover the Cultural Gems of Las Vegas
Written by Barbara Toombs
Fremont Street in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Millions of visitors are understandably attracted to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas’ renowned Strip each year, where world-class resorts, casinos, shows and incredible dining options are the name of the game.
What many don’t realize is that there’s another fascinating side to the Entertainment Capital of the World, headlined by two cultural districts known simply as Downtown and Chinatown.
Downtown Las Vegas (also known as DTLV) is really where this unique desert city got its start. In 1931, construction began on what is now known as the Hoover Dam, attracting thousands of workers to a site just east of the city. To capitalize on this growing workforce, savvy businessmen began building casinos and showgirl venues along Las Vegas’ only paved road at the time: Fremont Street.
Today, DTLV is comprised of three distinct districts. Many visitors to the city are already familiar with one of them: the Fremont Street Casino District, which contains museums, restaurants and bars, as well as the original Las Vegas casinos, including El Cortez, Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. Here you’ll also find the renowned Fremont Street Experience, which debuted in 1995. This pedestrian-only thoroughfare is covered by a canopy of more than two million LED lights and a state-of-the-art sound system that comes to life every night for a spectacular sound and light show called “Viva Vision.”
The Arts District
A popular attraction in this district is The Mob Museum (the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement), which showcases intriguing tales and the age-old dichotomy of good guys versus bad guys. Explore at your own pace, go on a guided tour or uncover museum surprises as part of a group scavenger hunt. Want a literal “taste” of old-school Las Vegas? Plan to dine at Top of Binion’s Steakhouse, perched on the 24th floor of Binion’s Gambling Hall. The restaurant dates back to 1965 when it was known as Top of the Mint, the signature dining spot at The Mint hotel tower. The interior design (and menu – think steak, prime rib, lobster and even Baked Alaska) is a throwback to an earlier era when the mob ran much of Las Vegas, but the real draw is the spectacular view through dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Built in 2002, the Fremont East Entertainment District (FEED) is a six-block area that stretches from Las Vegas Boulevard East to 8th Street and from Ogden Street South to Carson. FEED is pedestrian-friendly, offering diverse street life and many eateries, cafes, bars and lounges, as well as ample shopping opportunities and lively entertainment. A must-see attraction in this district is the Downtown Container Park – a dining, shopping and live music venue made of 45 colorful repurposed shipping containers, all fronted by a two-story, fire-breathing praying mantis who made its original debut at Burning Man. Nearby is the popular Bin 702 – one of many great dining choices in the area – featuring a great selection of beer and wine, as well as a tantalizing choice of charcuterie and cheese, sandwiches and small plates for sharing.
18b sign in The Arts District.
In recent years, The Arts District – or the 18b as it’s also known (a reference to it occupying 18 blocks of Downtown Las Vegas, loosely outlined by Commerce Street, Colorado Ave, Fourth Street and Hoover Avenue) – has been growing in popularity. Its monthly “First Friday” block party and art walk features food trucks and live music, serving as a backdrop for artists showing their works off at a variety of open-air and indoor galleries. These include The Arts Factory, home to over 30 artists and art galleries, and ArtSquare, a hip establishment that houses design stores, designer’s studios, wellness spots, and food and drink outlets. Behind The Arts Factory sits one of many great dining choices in The Arts District: Taverna Costera, serving up delicious Coastal Mediterranean fusion that draws inspiration from coastal Spanish, French, Italian and Greek cuisines and beyond.
Just a couple of miles east of the Strip, along Spring Mountain Road (roughly between Rainbow Boulevard and Interstate 15), lies the city’s amazing Chinatown, which has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two decades. Here you’ll find the largest collection of Asian businesses in Southern Nevada, including a multitude of authentic Asian restaurants, gift shops, a hair stylist, a reflexologist, home decor, an Asian supermarket and the only Chinese bookstore in Nevada.
At Chinatown’s heart is the enormous and ornate Chinatown Plaza, featuring a colorful, dragon-adorned, Tang Dynasty-inspired gate and gleaming

From Hamamatsu to Lisbon: A Honda CBX 1000 restomod by Unik Edition
The Honda CBX 1000 was only in production for four years, but that was enough time for it to leave a lasting impression on the motorcycle industry. First released it in 1978 as a screaming six-cylinder naked superbike, it later faced stiff competition from its stablemate—the equally iconic CB900F. So the Japanese marque redesigned it as a sport tourer, halfway through its tenure.
The updated ‘CBX-B’ had a touring fairing, optional panniers, and Honda’s new-at-the-time Pro-Link mono-shock setup. It was a hair less powerful than before, but that didn’t stop it from becoming a legend in its own right. If you park a CBX and CBX-B next to each other, you could argue that the latter has more presence.
It’s that mystique that prompted the owner of this 1982 Honda CBX 1000 Pro-Link to buy it. Enamored with the fusion of modern technology and ancient traditions found in Japanese cities like Tokyo and Kyoto, he was on the hunt for a classic motorcycle that embodied that philosophy. When he found the CBX, the sheer brutalism of its six-cylinder engine was impossible to ignore.
“In the eyes of this enthusiast, the engine wasn’t just a mechanical marvel; it was the soul of the motorcycle, much like the heart in a human body,” says Tiago Gonçalves, founder of the Portuguese custom shop, Unik Edition. “This revelation laid the foundation for a transformative project, one that would honor the motorcycle’s origins while infusing it with a new identity.”
