Barrett Jackson has what they call "Salon cars", a group of reserve cars. They were numbered 5000 lot. Everything else was no reserve. Consigners can drop the reserve if they wish to off the car, generate some more interest or the bidding is close enough to the reserve. What was strange to me was on a few occasions Craig and Steve announed they do not know what the reserve is, but was heard saying " the bidding is very close to the reserve".
The other funny thing, Steve was out in the bidder field bidding on Clark Gables mercedes... Without a bidders pass.....
As far as the fantasy bids, that is not related to Barrett. Just a game Haggerty insurance sponsors for speed channel.
All in all, another entertaining year.
