SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ‒ June 9, 2021 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions and a pioneer in the collector car industry, will once again bring innovation to the market when it auctions the world’s very first collector car NFTs at the upcoming 2021 Las Vegas Auction, June 17-19, at the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).
The four NFTs, the first of the series of VIN 001 sales, will feature a select group of vehicles that sold for charity during Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction earlier this year in March. The four vehicles include the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 (Lot #4001), the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition VIN 001 (Lot #4002), the 2021 Ford Bronco 2-Door VIN 001 (Lot #4003) and the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 VIN 001 (Lot #4004).
“Barrett-Jackson has blazed the trail in the collector car world for decades, and the roll-out of the first NFTs in our industry is another great example of our team introducing new and exciting ways to engage the hobby,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “In the early 1990s, we were the first collector car auction to offer live online bidding and, in 1997, we were the first collector car auction to be featured on live television. We’re thrilled to now be the first to introduce the expanding and exciting NFT platform to the collector car world.”
The launch of these exclusive NFTs is done in partnership with Motoclub.io and CurrencyWorks, Inc. Motoclub is a digital collectibles marketplace for car enthusiasts who buy and sell automotive memorabilia and provides content and experiences in the form of NFTs. CurrencyWorks, a financial technology blockchain pioneer, NFT and digital payment provider, will provide and operate the curated Motoclub platform for the minting, selling and trading of NFTs.
Along with being the first collector car NFTs, further value-add unique features of the design of these NFTs will be automated usage tracking and license management for the NFT owner, in addition to select content, features and benefits.
The four VIN 001 NFTs will be auctioned off from the block in Las Vegas, with Lots #4001 and #4002 being sold on Friday evening followed by Lots #4003 and #4004 on Saturday evening. Bidders will have their chance at owning a piece of collector car history and may do so live from the LVCC or remotely via online and phone bidding options.

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.”
