Every Barrett-Jackson auction has a spectrum of emotions. As participants navigate the event, they experience the thrill of bidding, a sense of awe inspired by the cars and the heartwarming camaraderie of reuniting with old friends and forging new connections.

For truly unforgettable moments, nothing quite surpasses the impact of the charity sales integral to the Barrett-Jackson experience. The narratives behind the donated cars and the noble goals of the charitable organizations bring out the finest qualities in individuals, making the charity auctions a standout feature. Thanks to the generosity of the collector car community, Barrett-Jackson has successfully raised over $154 million for charitable causes over the last half a century.

Winning bidders on these select vehicles are fully aware they are creating a profound impact, with the assurance that 100 percent of the hammer price goes directly to the charitable organization, as Barrett-Jackson waives all auction fees.

The 2024 Scottsdale Auction presents an impressive lineup of deserving charities to champion, featuring donated cars that embody both the forefront of automotive innovation and timeless elegance, style and performance.

LOT #3002 – 2023 JEEP GLADIATOR RUBICON CUSTOM SUV – 100% OF HAMMER PRICE TO BENEFIT BUILDING HOMES FOR HEROES

Featured among the charitable offerings is a 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 3LZ (Lot #3000 on Thursday, January 25), powered by a 5.5-liter V8 engine with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. It has been equipped with the Z07 Ultimate Performance Package and carbon-fiber wheels. The entire hammer price from the sale of this special Corvette benefits The Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation. The foundation, which is dedicated to combating amyloidosis, is named after Chip Miller, known for his extensive personal collection of Corvettes and a key figure in the creation of Carlisle Events. In December 2003, Miller received a diagnosis of amyloidosis, a condition where abnormal proteins (amyloid) accumulate in one or more organs, leading to dysfunction. Unfortunately, Miller passed away in 2004 due to complications from amyloidosis. The foundation’s mission is to empower individuals with knowledge about amyloidosis for early detection, thereby improving the quality of life for those affected by the disease and supporting scientific efforts to find cures.

On Friday, January 26, Lot #3001 presents a tribute to the 1968 Shelby GT350 ‒ a meticulous re-creation donated by Barry Smith of Legendary GT Continuation Cars. This Mustang, built for the Carroll Shelby Automotive Program at Northeast Texas Community College, will go also be in the spotlight on Barrett-Jackson auction block in January, with the entire sale price going to The Northeast Texas Community College Foundation. Maintaining the original ‘60s-era Mustang VIN and title, the car underwent a bare-metal transformation into the Shelby GT350 model, reminiscent of the 1965 FIA Sports Car World Championship winners. Finished in Wimbledon White with a 302 Ford small-block engine and 4-speed Toploader transmission, this re-creation captures the spirit of the iconic Shelby GT350.

LOT #3003 – 2024 FORD MUSTANG DARK HORSE VIN 001 – 100% OF HAMMER PRICE TO BENEFIT JDRF

The custom 2023 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon (Saturday, January 27, Lot #3002) offered for a charitable cause at the 2024 Scottsdale Auction boasts a 3.6-liter V8 engine paired with an automatic transmission. The 4×4 black Jeep was crafted in collaboration with Mattel as a life-size version of the Mattel RealTruck toy and was showcased at the 2023 SEMA Show. The entire hammer price will benefit Building Homes for Heroes, an organization dedicated to bringing renewed hope to injured veterans by constructing or modifying mortgage-free homes, providing support services for them and their families to build brighter lives.

Also on Saturday, the sale of Lot #3003, generously donated by Ford, is a 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse VIN 001 that will support JDRF in its mission to combat type 1 diabetes (T1D).

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.
