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.”
