It's about 6 hrs driving. Or you might be able to get a cheap flight.

Jeeeeez you're making me dream of the time many years ago when I towed a 36 Auburn boattail speedster to the Barrett-Jackson show , and we also had a Shelby and an MG.......the show was so small back then.
Enjoy your time there! Jon is right on about the 6 hours driving time.

How do we know exactly when the CS will cross the block? I have the Barrett-Jackson booklet listing all the cars and the CS is Lot #419, but do they do it in numerical order or what?
Or do I have to watch hours and days of the auction and hope I catch the CS?

they have the schedule listed on their website somewhere. I kinda remember looking up the CS and it was wednesday. I could be mistaken so someone double check me.

Your right on the day. It's scheduled to be up on the block on Wednesday, 18 Jan 06.

Will be interesting to see what it does.

It will be televised but, don't know if that segment will make the TV slot or not. I'll be watching. They are suppose to start televising the 17th on the Speed Channel.

A little off topic but don't forget to go do the tour at the Shelby plant while you're in Vegas. I'd hate to see you go all that way and miss that!

I've downloaded the list of cars from the Barrett Jackson web-stie, loaded it into Excel, and sorted it by manufacturer, make, and year. It has the hyper-links so clicking on the link pulls up that car from the internet.

If anyone wants it just holler and I'll send it to you. I'd post it but it's almost 1100 lines and I think Jon might order a hit on me if I did that!
