From the Desert to the Rolling Hills of NC, MyClassicGarage Keeps the Classic Car Market Thriving

It is going to be a busy weekend for MyClassicGarage. Some of the team will be flying out to the fifth-annual Barrett Jackson, Las Vegas, and others will be staying here at home for the Charlotte, NC AutoFair.

The annual Charlotte AutoFair returns Thursday and runs through Sunday, September 20-23. It features over 8,000 vendor spaces chock-full of restoration parts, and over 1,600 vehicles for sale in the Car Corral. In addition to cars for sale and vendor spaces, there will be more than 50 other car clubs displaying their vehicles. With all this excitement, MyClassicGarage deemed it necessary to make an appearance and answer any questions potential users of our free online tool may have. You can easily find us by spotting the ’79 Trans Am we’re giving away!

Some of the other team ‘sacrificed’ and will be flying out over halfway across the country to the desert of Las Vegas to cover the Barrett-Jackson auction. It takes place this weekend, September 20-22, under the neon glow of the Las Vegas Strip at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. MyClassicGarage will have a booth set up to tell potential users about all the benefits of using the free software.

Last year’s Barrett-Jackson, Las Vegas auction was a huge success with a 97% sell-through rate selling a record 580 vehicles. A total of 60,000 people attended the event increasing merchandise sales 25% from 2010. Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson of Barrett-Jackson had this to say, “Results from the Las Vegas auction demonstrate that the collector car market is incredibly strong within all segments of the hobby, despite an uncertain global economic climate.”

This year’s top vehicles include a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird two-door hardtop and a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback.

The Classic Car Market is alive and well, and MyClassicGarage is leading the way in not only keeping it alive, but making it thrive.
