    Never really paid attention before but noticed Barrett-Jackson and Russo-Steele share some dates this year.Just as a car show type outing which would be the best one to go to.Looked over Barrett consignments for this year...didn't see anything real special...Very few MOPAR'S.

    Both auctions have always shared the same weekend. Barrett has add'l auction days as well as preview days. The overall experiences for each are completely different & you'll have to decide which is better for you.

    If you mainly want to see classic cars, hot rods & muscle cars, R&S should be your choice. It's all about the cars & a much smaller venue as well as much less expensive to attend :)

    If you prefer an all day experience where you'll park your car & board a huge bus that will transport you 1/2 mile or so to the event, then you might like Barrett. The B-J event will include many obscure cars of all kinds. It could easily take 2 days to see everything...tons of vendors, interactive displays by 1 or 2 of the big 3, etc.

    If you have the time, I would suggest trying to go to both :D

    Just looking at the consignment list Russo and Steele looks more like what I'm looking for. Thanks

    If you go to the local cruis-ins such as Pavillions you'll see lots of daily driver and higher end cars. There will also be a sprinkling of early A bodies.

    I haven't been to 67th and Bell. Maybe after the auctions are over.
