ROCK STARS AND BLOCK STARS: Day 7 in Scottsdale Shines with Great Sales and Celebrities
Sammy Hagar made a surprise appearance during the Red Voodoo concert!

Day 7 proved to be a spectacular star-studded day with many special guests around the auction site at WestWorld. One of the most exciting moments was when the “Red Rocker,” Sammy Hagar, made a surprise appearance onstage during the Red Voodoo performance in the South Showcase presented by Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum. Michael Anthony, the bassist for Van Halen joined the set and everyone rocked along to hits including “I Can’t Drive 55.”

Several sports, entertainment and automotive celebrities were on hand to check out the excitement at the auction today. Larry Fitzgerald, the legendary Arizona Cardinals wide receiver, was in attendance, as was Race car driver Kurt Busch and automobile designer Chip Foose.

Shelby American President Gary Patterson and Carroll Shelby’s grandson Aaron Shelby made an appearance on the auction block with Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson and President Steve Davis for the charity sale of a 1968 Shelby GT350 re-creation built for and donated to the Carroll Shelby Automotive Program at Northeast Texas Community College. As is tradition, all auction fees were waived for the important sale, which raised $100,000 to provide scholarships for students interested in the program.

Enthusiastic bidders and automotive fans filled the auction arena as just over 400 sought-after high-performance supercars, powerful trucks and sleek sports and muscle cars crossed the block. Six-figure sales kept the action in the fast lane, and the roar of the audience grew with each bang of the gavel.

Friday’s top sales included Lot #1094, a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 for $440,000; Lot #1067, a 1967 Chevrolet C10 custom pickup that sold for $330,000; Lot #1106.1, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle custom coupe that’s going to a new home for $280,500; Lot #1079, a 1968 Dodge Charger custom coupe for $275,000; and Lot #1045, a 1965 Superformance MKIII roadster known as “The Italian Job” and the world’s fastest Cobra, which sold for $242,000.

The day began with the Automobilia Auction, where a pair of 1950s Gulf-Racing-Themed Bowser Siamese-Rolway gas pumps (Lot #9387.7) captured the top-seller spot, crossing the block for $57,500. Kiddie rides, always popular among collectors, stayed in the spotlight today with Lot #9383.2, a 1999 Dale Earnhardt Race Car #3 kiddie ride, selling for $57,270. Other highlights included Lot #9382.1, a 1920S Supertest Gasoline Clear Vision Model #700 twin visible gas pump, which brought in $46,000; Lot #9391.4, a large late-model Porsche neon tin sign for $42,550 and Lot #9351.1, a circa 1940s-early ’50s Buick Service porcelain sign, which went to a new home for $40,250.

Throughout the year, four builders have been a part of the Castrol YouTube series “Path to Performance,” which followed the teams as they built cars to compete in the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Cup. The final Collector Car Symposium of the week featured three of the builders: Troy Gudgel of BBT Fabrications, Phil and Jeremy Gerber from the Roadster Shop, and Jesse and Jeff Greening from Greening Auto Company. Bobby Alloway, Barrett-Jackson Cup judge and owner of Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop, was also on hand to provide his expertise. The Ultimate Best in Show for the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Cup will be announced Saturday, January 27, on the auction block at noon local time. Tune into the livestream or FYI to see who takes home the $20,000 cash purse!

Be sure to join us for what promises to be an off-the-charts Super Saturday! Over 300 of some of the world’s most coveted vehicles will have their turn on the auction block, the winner of the Barrett-Jackson Cup will be announced and two more charity cars will raise funds for important causes. All-day tickets are available as well as special Evening Session tickets valid after 5 p.m.

Catch the action on the livestream all day and into the night, or watch live on FYI from 12 to 4 p.m. and History from 4 to 10 p.m. You won’t want to miss a minute!

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling.
