While I can’t say who bought the car, I can say it was not “Barret Jackson himself.” The company is named Barrett-Jackson after Russ Jackson, Nellie Jackson and Tom Barrett the founders.

The first couple of days at Mecham, there are usually some good buys. It all depends on how many interested buyers too of course. BJ seems to want to position itself as higher end cars, even though you see $million cars at Mecham too. People just get carried away at auctions, and think because it's being auctioned, it's worth more I guess. Buy you can order a Redeye, and what options you want, so why everyone was so hot for that one...

i think its has to do with bragging rights. i knew a guy who bought a 70 cuda from BJ in AZ. car was nothing special in the world of high end cuda's..mostly original 440, pistol grip, red on black.
the only thing he seemed to cling to when talking about it, was "this is a barrett car" and how it was on TV and all that.
then there are guys who go to BJ, Mecums, RM's and others and pay cash buying 10-12 cars in 2 days, perhaps they dont have time to shop dealers and dont care about getting the best price.
