Automotive auctions have become a television staple because it’s fun to watch well-heeled bidders buying pristine collectible cars. Theses beauties might be beyond the reach of most of us, but it’s still fun to dream. Not all the dream cars are completely unattainable, however. There are some real-world cars for sale too.

Ford’s display at Barrett Jackson rivals what the company puts forth for a traditional auto show. From passenger cars and trucks to all the Ford Performance hardware, it’s a great place for no-pressure shopping research.

As auctions go, Barrett Jackson is at the forefront of popularity. This rolling roadshow tours from the West to the Southeast to the Northeast and back out West. If one is held near you, you should definitely add it to your automotive dance card.

You’ll see that there is more to these events than just bidding on beautiful cars, but there was plenty of that when we visited the Barrett Jackson in West Palm Beach, Florida, with over 23.2 million in collector cars and collectibles sold at the event.
