To mark Barrett-Jackson’s half-century in business, in this special series we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite moments from the past 50 years – as well as some little-known facts about The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions.
In the summer of 2019, Barrett-Jackson got word the company had been nominated for the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest for the No. 1 Best Attraction for Car Lovers. The 20 nominees were chosen by a panel of experts that included a combination of editors from USA TODAY and 10Best.com, as well as other relevant expert contributors and media sources.
Barrett-Jackson was pitted against attractions that ranged from car museums and factory tours to behind-the-wheel driving experiences and other live auctions. After a four-week voting period, the results were in, with The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions capturing the No. 1 position.
“This is an incredible honor for all of us at Barrett-Jackson,” said CEO Craig Jackson at the time. “Our team works tirelessly to create the ultimate lifestyle experience for our guests across the country. I’m thankful for the consignors, bidders, sponsors and collector car enthusiasts who voted with their hearts for this great recognition and are an integral part of the Barrett-Jackson family.”
Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis added, “I’m extremely proud of what the Barrett-Jackson family of enthusiasts can accomplish when we come together. Each year we strive to be better than the last, providing the ultimate collector car experience ‒ whether you are watching from home or in the auction arena.”
The USA Today contest was yet one more testimony that what Barrett-Jackson has been doing year after year for half a century now is deeply connecting with car enthusiasts across the United States – and around the globe.
