Lake Tahoe Strippers

Did You Attend Hot August Nights?

How many of you went to Hot August Nights? How many of you watch Gas Monkey Garage? How many of you know about Barrett-Jackson car auctions? Well I'm a huge fan of all 3.

This year Barrett-Jackson had a 100% Sell through rate at Hot August Nights. You gotta admit, that's pretty awesome.

Barrett-Jackson, the collector car auctioneer sold 232 vehicles and over 400 collectible automobilia pieces at the Reno Tahoe action August 6 through August 8. It was the third annual Hot August Nights Auction presented by Barrett-Jackson in Reno. The organization saw a 100 percent-sell through rate with sales totaling more than $9.5 million and over $400,000 raised for charity.

On August 6, over 15,000 guests attended the first day of the car auction and display. 
“In traditional Barrett-Jackson style, we crushed records on every level during our Hot August Nights auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.  “Not only did we have a 100 percent sell through rate with more than $9.5 million in sales, but our attendance was up, shattering our single-day record in our three year history in Reno. It’s clear that this week's auction success is further evidence that Barrett-Jackson remains at the forefront of the American collector car market.”

The top five vehicles sold during the Reno auction include:

With five charity lots, Barrett-Jackson raised over $400,000 for deserving organizations including Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Ride 2 Recovery, The Foundation for Exceptional Warriors, High Fives Non-Profit Foundation and Transforming Youth Recovery.

“With an incredible 2015 Reno Tahoe auction already behind us, our sights are focused on growing our momentum for our 8 Annual Las Vegas Auction in September,” said Jackson. “We’re building an exciting docket of vehicles, planning an incredible gala and preparing for another record auction.”
