The "Cruising with Classic Cars and Hot Rods" staff heads to The Mohegan Sun Casino for another exciting year of the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction. 2018 marks the third year that Barrett-Jackson will visit the Northeast and The Mohegan Sun Casino and bring all these automotive pieces of artwork on display and to cross the block of excitement as the hammer will drop through out the days ahead.

It all starts on preview day, Wednesday June 20th, 2018 and goes to Saturday June 23rd, 2018. CCCHR will be there to see it all.  It is a true spectacle of the automotive world and the collector car hobby.  From new vehicles on display under  the vendor tents, Automotive products, Vehicle manufacturer representatives with thrill rides utilizing their modern muscle and performance cars, to the staging area of over 600 auction collector cars.

This 3rd Annual Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction at the Mohegan Sun Casino was the first event to utilize the brand new Earth Expo & Convention Center.  It was said that this brand new facility was under a fast paced construction for the Barrett-Jackson event, and that the walls were just finished being painted and are still drying as this awesome auto extravaganza event unfolds.

1967 Shelby GT500 E - Ashton Collection - Earth Expo Center

Visiting the new convention center, numerous automotive companies were represented like Chevy, Dodge, Ford, Backdraft Racing, Vintage Motorsports, Enfield Auto Restoration and more.  Vendors like Michael Irvine Automotive Art, Automotive Protective Coating Companies, Automotive Lifts, Dupont Registry, and additional vendors  had set up their booths for patrons and enthusiasts to enjoy.
What an automotive spectacle that Barrett-Jackson produces.  It is an event not to miss especially for the auto enthusiast. Beautiful collector cars were being prepped for display and to cross the block on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

While at the NEW Earth Expo and Convention Center, CCCHR Host Gary NeVo talked with the owners’ of Enfield Auto Restorations. A restoration company of over 43 years, they work on complete restorations and builds of foreign and domestic vehicles, partial restorations, collector car upgrades and service, along with steel frame reconstruction and more.  Look for the CCCHR exclusive interview soon.

One aspect that CCCHR tries to capture is the personable and humanities of the enthusiast.  After all, there are always stories to tell behind the scenes of the owner's, the collector and classic cars, the events, and charitable causes. 

THURSDAY 6/21/2018
The atmosphere of this 2018 event is fun, enlightening, active, and numerous cars were sold successfully on the very first day.  It was said that patron's shoe leather were on fire as they walked the grounds throughout the day seeing and hearing the sounds of automotive artwork.  Beautiful cars were under the tent and within Winter Garage. Walking the garage felt like a blast from the past.  Cars were being started within the garage and the smell of V8 power was emanating throughout the garage as if a scene from American Graffiti was being filmed and a street race was underway.

Barrett-Jackson truly understands how to bring a luxury automotive event to life and to the masses. Televised Live on Velocity and Discovery Channels, Streaming Live on the Barrett-Jackson website or app, one can see and hear the auction block action all over the country and beyond in their homes.  There is nothing like being at a Barrett-Jackson event in person, however, the excitement is invigorating.

Hearing the sounds of V8 power echoing down the corridor towards the auction block is like being at a race track during prep time. 
Thursday was said to be well attended and
bidders were able to get good value purchases for their selected collector car.
The closing numbers on Thursday 6/21/2018: 100% of the 219 Cars were sold with a total Auction Price of $$4,146,450.00
FRIDAY 6/22/ 2018
Cruising with Classic Cars & Hot Rods and Host Gary NeVo was extremely busy at the New Earth Expo and Convention Center.  CCCHR was able to chronicle most of the Ashton Collection of Cars crossing the block for Friday and Saturday.  We also spoke with patrons during this time about their love of the collector car hobby and being here at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Event. 
The new Expo center is just GRAND with no pillars to block your view. A great addition to this Barrett-Jackson Event.
CCCHR later strolled to the Harley Davidson vender area and spoke with the folks at Mike’ Famous Harley Davidson. The only Harley Davidson Shoppe that uses an authentic Historic Coca-Cola® factory of 55,000 square feet for their facility.  CCCHR Host spoke with Mike and his employees for an interview coming soon.

Later, we met Craig of the Motor Trend LIVE stage.  He was speaking about a silver 1981 Trans Am that recently sold at auction for approximately 18k despite being reported and disclosed that the vehicle had been in a roll over crash.  Speaking with Craig, he is such a knowledgeable, down-to-earth gentlemen and provides great information about these collector cars that sell at the auction. He makes for a positive addition the Barrett-Jackson team.
Collector cars were still crossing the block way past scheduled air time hours.  One of the last cars was a 1987 burgundy colored corvette coupe that sold for a huge value of  $6,600.

The closing numbers on Friday 6/22/2018: 244 cars sold out of 245.  That is a 99.59% selling success rate. A total Auction Price for Friday was $$7,680,370
SATURDAY 6/23/2018
We at CCCHR sat in on the “Behind the Hobby Collector Car Symposium.”  Key hosts were: Dave Wise, Roy Sinor, Anthony Sinor, Steve Magnante, Alan Taylor, and Automotive Expert Kevin Marti.
This is a highly recommended symposium put on by the Barrett-Jackson Event Team.  It is an honest, down to earth approach about what to look for with your collector car of interest, potential purchase information, what some of the tricky terms mean in the industry like “Numbers Matching”, the current trends of the hobby and much more.
CCCHR Host Gary NeVo was honored to speak with Kevin Marti about classic cars; moreover, the Classic Mustang.  One of the questions that stuck out in his mind while speaking with Mr. Marti was about the assessment of value of the collector car or mustang and when would updating the mechanicals of a particular vehicle start becoming more of a custom car rather than an original classic.
According to Kevin Marti, one way an enthusiast can determine  weather the updates to a vehicle may hinder the value is the ability to reverse back the componentry to stock with minimal to no effort. 
In other words, making improvements to your classic car for better reliability and drivability for your enjoyment will probably not hurt the value of your classic, if one keeps all the original parts and has the ability to reverse back to stock as easy as possible with no modifications.  Therefore, when deciding to improve your classic’s perforce, ask yourself, your restoration technician, your mechanic, etc. how reversible are these upgrades?!!  So, if you are the person who thinks of the value of keeping your vehicle stock, but want better performance, this approach can aide in your selection of parts and componentry for your classic or collector vehicle.
Saturday’s Auction action was a thrill.  From the success of selling the Ashton Collection of cars for impressive auction prices to the Charitable Auction of the last two productions Vin Numbered Dodge Viper and Dodge Demon both layered in viper red and both selling for 1.1 million dollars for the United Way Foundation.  C.C.C.H.R. was back stage to try to capture this unforgettable moment in Barrett-Jackson Auction History.
The auction action continued with a beautiful black 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon which had only 8 actual miles and powered by an 840 horsepower supercharged Hemi V8 motor with an 8 speed automatic transmission and a drag suspension package to boot.  Hammer price for this sweet Hemi Demon dropped at 198,000.
From the Ashton Collection, an incredible black 1969 Chevy Camaro Custom sold for $93,500.  A beautiful red 1961 Chevy Corvette fuelie convertible sold for $88,000 in addition to its brother a black 1961 Chevy Corvette Convertible selling for $71,500.  A 1973 Dodge Challenger Custom coupe with two tone silver and grey color scheme, a 440ci motor with a 6 pack backed by a pistol grip 3 speed automatic transmission sold for $92,400.

This was only a fraction of the Ashton Collection. A tremendous highlight was a  custom 1967 Chevy Nova nicknamed “The Innovator” sold for $270,500.  A complete Custom master piece of Iron Artwork. ®    “Just Incredible”, “Just Dynamic”  says Host Gary NeVo of Cruising with Classic Cars & Hot Rods after seeing this 1967 Nova work of Iron Art and the reward it sold for over the block.
2018, the 3 Annual Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auto Auction event at Mohegan Sun Casino and the first event to utilize their brand new Earth Expo and Convention Center comes to a very successful close.
Cruising with Classic Cars & Hot Rods would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Robert Desimone, Aaron Cook and all at the Barrett-Jackson Media Team for allowing us to assist with this Northeast event.  Hope to see what next year brings.  Stay tuned….

Saturday 6/24/2017
What a day here at Mohegan Sun Casino for the 2nd Annual Barrett-Jackson North East Auto Auction Event.  CCCHR arrived and made their way back to the Winter Garage staging area and the Vender Tent.  There were so many cars, approximately 800 Classic and Collector cars going across the block this year. It is difficult to see and inspect all of this iron artwork.
Interestingly, according to Barrett-Jackson, the car auction market is changing a bit as far as new interested people entering the auto hobby.  This is tremendous as cars of the 80’s and 90’s are now becoming more collectable and Barrett-Jackson is at the forefront of this changing market. For example Lot #4  a 1982 DATSUN 280ZX with two tone orange and brown paint sold for $8250.00 and

Lot #14  a 1984 MERCEDES-BENZ 500SEL color black with beautiful real flame paint job an usual paint scheme for this model car, but done nicely hammered for $6,600.00.  In addition Lot #17  a burgundy 1996 CHEVROLET IMPALA SS went to a new owner for $13,200. 

Under the tent, we saw that vehicles have changed in the staging are readying for the block.  We also met up with Michael Irvine, a tremendously talented and outgoing artist, who was showcasing his works of watercolor auto art.  A truly breath taking, awe inspiring works of auto art was on display for all to see.  A professional architect / draftsman by trade, the realism, perspective, and orientation of his artwork utilizing a tough medium as watercolor, was an absolute delight to preview, and study.  I mention study because Michael’s art was so compelling to view, the longer you viewed his paintings the more you would discover. 

Michael Irvine's works of art is intriguing, and inspires you to inspect his paintings diligently to see what one can discover throughout.

CCCHR was able to conduct and edit this exclusive interview with Artist Michael Irvine at the 2 Annual Barrett-Jackson Northeast.

Saturday was Eleanor Mustang day at Barrett-Jackson.  I love mustangs and the Nicholas Cage version of Gone in 60 seconds Mustang was pretty cool too; however, I always loved the Tobey version and all the cars he wrecked in the original film. So, seeing these cars come across the block was exciting.  These renditions of Eleanor were "HOT"!! So the list of these Mustangs are as follows:

Lot #667 was a one of a kind 1967 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM FASTBACK Eleanor with a custom tan interior and is powered by a rare Ford 427 FE side-oiler big-block motor. Rated at 425hp from the factory, this engine contributed to the success of the Ford Racing legacy and sold for 67,100. 
Lot #718 is a very special 1968 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM FASTBACK starting from an authentic S code 390 Fastback and restored meticulously which hammered down at an impressive $123,200.00.   
Lot #724  was a black and red 1968 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM FASTBACK which was a coupe to fastback conversion custom build with an Eleanor body kit with a strong 351ci Windsor V8 engine, Stage 2 cam, and a T5 manual transmission with 4-wheel power disc brakes. This coupe to fastback conversion Eleanor style Fastback Mustang sold for $77,000. 
Lot #747  was another Coupe to Fastback build.  This 1967 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM FASTBACK was beautifully done recreation with a newer rebuilt 428ci V8 with a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission and power disc brakes selling for $79,200.
One way to tell if a Mustang is coupe to fastback conversion is from the vin number.  The 01 in the vin depicts a coupe as 02 in the Vin depicts a Factory Fastback.  It is important to be sure that the conversion is done well for strength and safety purposes especially with the horse power that these cars are putting out.  Some of these Mustang builders can do amazing things with these builds.
Friday 6/23/2017

Heading on the auction floor on Friday was as exciting as ever. All eyes glued to the Auction Block to see the featured cars up for sale.  Barrett-Jackson and their entire staff hard at work for the viewers, bidders, and guests. Just another great showing.  Seeing the auction on TV is one thing, but experiencing the Barrett-Jackson Auto event live and in person is like no other.  A bidder can get truly up close and personal with the vehicle he or she may want to purchase.  And as for the spectators experiencing the excitement when the hammer falls is truly fantastic.  An auction Event like no other.
CCCHR arrived nice and early today via the back way to Mohegan Sun through CT RT3 and RT2.  Such a nice scenic New England ride as well.

As we arrived the Memorabilia Auction was underway in full swing.  We are heading out in the field to take photos of the beautiful cars that are set up within the building along the shops and boutiques. Stay tuned….

We went t the shopping and Boutique area to find exquisite vehicles scheduled for Saturday’s high-priced auction from 2 and 3 generation corvettes to Jaguar E-Types.  Everyone of these cars are said to fetch some big money as the cross the block on  Saturday's Auction.

Thursday 6/22/2017

The first day of the Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction here at the Mohegan Sun Casino.  The first day kicked off beautifully well with great cars at an unprecedented awesome values and hammer prices.  Winners of today's auction made out like the one arm bandits.  Great looking cars hammering down at impressive values.  Top three  sales were of approx. $60K, 48K, and 42K.  See for details.
For example  Lot# 39.1 a 1940 Packard 110 Club Coupe Color blue was restored to a like-new condition running and driving with a 3 speed transmission as if it was 1940 all over again sold for $23,650.
At the close of the Barrett-Jackson auction on Thursday 6/22/17, the total value of auto sales from Lot 1 to Lot 199 summed up the night at $$4,236,870.00

Keep in mind that there were not just 199 autos auctioned.  It is important to note that during the auction, you will notice Lot numbers depicting for example 72.1,72.2, 72.3 etc.  It was stated that Steve attempts to assign Lot numbers with a purpose, grouping these lovely vehicles with similar values and prospective sale prices in a fair representation of the vehicle types, history of the vehicle, and cost values.

Wednesday 6-21-2017
CCCHR arrived on Preview Day at the Barrett-Jackson North East Mohegan Sun Event. All is well here at the casino. Auctions of Memorabilia is currently under way and moving along nicely. A little lightly attended, CCCHR hopes to get some great photos of cars crossing the block in the next three days.
Stay tuned for Photos and briefings of this  2017 Barrett -Jackson event...........

Preview Day

As CCCHR checked into the media center we were met with coffee and refreshments. A much needed pick-me-up for the long ride into Mohegan Sun.  Once settled in, we set up the Facebook page and the NevoAV web site for information sharing.  CCCHR will like to extend an appreciation and a thank you to Barrett-Jackson event staff for inviting us back to Mohegan Sun for this wonderful Northeast Auto event.
Moving on to the Event Staging Area and vender tents, the event set –up was almost identical to last year which is made up of:
The large Auction Vehicles staging tent which included many vehicles getting ready to pass the block on Thursday 6/22/2017
The vender tent which was even larger than the staging tent, just remarkable, inside was Dodge, Ford, Chevy, Backdraft Racing and Vintage MotorSports AC Cobra Replica manufacturers and assemblers.  Barrett-Jackson memorabilia and clothing section was featured right in the middle as other Venders and manufactures surrounded the interior as well.

These cars below, Cobra Replicas, are just too sweet of a ride. We saw beautiful renditions of the cobras at the Barrett Jackson preview day from Factory Five, to Shelby Continuations and those in between like Superformance and Backdrafts.  There are other cobra recreations that were not displayed. They also had a couple up for auction. Artwork, every one of them.

I get impatient, so I like that there are companies that have rollers all ready to go and  all you need is the power train and your done.

The rollers  cost a little more than the FF5s but in the long run you may brake even with labor costs, etc and a drive train is still neded, but you’ll be driving your snake a lot sooner. However; if you’re the self proclaimed auto engineer and want a hands on approach and build every inch of your car yourself and experience like no other,  The Factory Five will fit the bill. FFR is located close by in Massachusetts.

Numerous Venders surrounded the near by tents like: Factory Five Racing, Shelby Auto and Superformance, Continental Tire, crate motor manufactures, car product and more.
One of the most coolest attractions surrounding the outer area of the tents were the Car Manufacturers’ of Ford, Chevy, and Dodge and their test drive area and HOT Lap track.  After  some marketing protocols, red tape and computer surveys, you are able to test drive cars from each manufacturer, then the greatest fun ever, take a HOT lap in a performance car of your choosing with a professional, NO JOKE, driver.  Corvettes, Cameras SS, Ford Mustang GT 350, Dodge Challengers and Charger Hellcats were all available for these HOT lap white knuckle rides, Just Awesome!!.
CCCHR Crew were able to test drive the Camaro and the Mustang 300 Horse Power echo boost along with HOT laps in the Mustang GT350 and Corvettes.  Details to follow on these rides.

Click Photo for Chevy HOT LAP

The head to head is a tough one: I love the raw power and Sound of those Dodges especially the Hellcat Challengers and Chargers, The Mustang GT350, well I'm a ford guy so love it, The high revving RPMs and the acceleration of the GT 350 is incredible. The Camaro SS visibility was a little restricted but an extremely smooth and refined sporty car. The Corvette, well, the one I was in was just a down to earth performance car.

So the hard choice: For the fun factor: The Sound of raw power goes to the Dodge.  Nimbleness and quickness goes to the Mustang GT350.  Smooth and refined represents the Camaro. Over all seamless performance has to go the the Corvette.

My Winner: The Mustang GT350, but I am I'm a biased Mustang Fan and really like the looks of the car; however, I'd be happy with any of them.

Nearby, Mohegan Sun’s Winter Garage was converted into a Classic and Collector Car Showcase of Auction Vehicles, a beautiful sight of machinery and metal and fiberglass artwork. 

After hours of photo taking and drooling at the abundance of beautiful iron art of vehicles, CCCHR went and drooled for some tasty pie at Pepe's Pizza and polished off a Large Mozz 1/2 pepperoni, a must have if your swinging by.  Thanks Gary, better than ever at the casino.

Saturday June 25, 2016 - Final Auction Day

Saturday June 25, 2016

Mohegan Sun Arena, readying for Saturday’s Event. Photos of the somber Arena cleaned up and ready to go for Saturday’s action were taken.  Just an awesome site!! 
Good morning from CCCHR. I had my coffee and am ready to go.  This is the last day for Barrett-Jackson Northeast at Mohegan Sun Casino.  This event has been the Largest Event in attendance for both Barrett-Jackson and Mohegan Sun.  Staff was completely over whelmed, but adapted well to the sea of car lovers and enthusiasts.  This is truly a huge production and despite a couple of hiccups, this event went smoothly.  It was said that a contract with Mohegan Sun and Barrett-Jackson may be in the works to host the event for an additional 5 years.  We will see. Such a nice, active, fun event for all..
      -CCCHR G
CCCHR is concentrating on the Auction floor today (Saturday 6/25/16).  What action!!!! Cars are coming across the block and selling like hot pizza at Pepe’s.  And, anyone in the New Haven, CT area knows Pepe’s Pizza, that’s a lot of cars. 

 Since the closing of the first day on Thursday 6/23/16 and Friday 6/24/16 over $10.7 Million Dollars worth of fine automobiles have been exchanged hands in. “The Scenery of Machinery” (r)(c) gn has been magnificent.  From big bad muscle to exquisite classics and antiques, all are here at the Mohegan Sun Casino. 
After two days of Auction Sales the following tallies were reported: On Thursday 6/23/16, 172 cars were sold amounting to total sales of $3, 547,470.00. On the closing of Friday 6/24/16, 196 cars were sold amounting to total sales of 7,173,200.00.
Today, Saturday is hot.  More people are here than the past two days, Parking in all garages here at the casino were filled sooner that the prior two days.  They even had slow ticket sales.  One casino personnel stated that many workers were surprised and over whelmed with the attendance numbers, but the have adapted well and provided accommodations accordingly. A sea of blue Mohegan Sun shirts swarmed the complex to help patrons.  Most all of them were helpful and kind, thank you to all for your hard work during this event. 
             -CCCHR G 

Wow, the auction floor was dynamite with action.  As the CCCHR crew was out and about the rumble of the crowd roaring in amazement of an auction sale of over $205,000 for a 1966 Custom Ford Mustang -Ringbrothers “Bailout” Fastback. 
Although the Television Crew coving the event is truly top notch professionals and provide an incredible inter-active viewing experience, it can only give you half the experience.  It’s just incredible being here live.  While on the auction floor and personally feeling the action, and seeing the incredible sights, and hearing the sounds of excited people, the smell of V-8 power, and the sounds of the engines purring across the block is an auto experience like no other.  The Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction Event here at Mohegan Sun Casino an impactfull experience for all involved.

With an event such as this, the Production crew that is needed is tremendous; a pictorial of the staff, crew, and moderators in action will tell the story.  Not too many people realize the magnitude in pulling off such a large scale production event. It’s not just a car auction; it is a pure technological marvel of Television production, automotive vender event, entertainment coverage, informational transfer, large financial sales and fast pace customer service, showmanship and professionalism for an ongoing event of 3 days/ 18 hours.  A behind the scene look of all the hard work that when we watch Barrett-Jackson on TV, we just do not see all the effort only that everything looks good on your flat screen TV handing on your wall.

The Northeast Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction Comes to a close with an unprecedented event surprising some of the Mohegan Sun employees by the shear numbers of attendance.

This is clearly one of most attended events in Mohegan Sun History. Some under estimated the attendance numbers, but not Gary of The Mohegan Sun Casino, the Director of Convention Sales & Services. He stated that he knows this area well and knew that this venue would be a superb location to host the
Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction event. Well, after three days of success, it would be hard pressed to argue with his foresight, a job well done for this inaugural Northeast Barrett-Jackson event.

Friday June 24, 2016

So here we are, CCCHR is back at the Barrett-Jackson Event at the Mohegan Sun Casino, an absolute beautiful day as well and the attendance is incredible.  Some areas are standing room only.

For Friday June 24, 2016, the First impressions of the Barrett Jackson Show were exciting, fun, chaotic, and fast paced. The glitz, the glamour of T.V. comes to the North East at Mohegan Sun.  The Barrett-Jackson auto auction event of we watch at home and are glued to our TV watching what these cars sell for is here in our state of CT. AWESOME!!!!!! It’s exciting to hear the auctioneer spewing out numbers so fast that it changes your own pace of activity. The energy is incredible!
            -CCCHR   C
As CCCHR was preparing for the day, our crew heard the rumble of car engines, but it did not seem to be the sound consistent with classic muscle car engines.  We looked over the wall of the Indian Summer Garage and saw 21 century modern muscle cars rounding the ready-made track of the Ford, Chevy, and Dodge Thrill Rides.  Beautiful Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers were racing around the track with ease.  The sounds of modern muscle are as strong as ever.

Gas Monkey Garage is featuring one of  their restoration 1955 Chevy 210 Custom Hardtop LOT 7001 here at Barrett-Jackson Northeast.
Their Chevy SOLD SOLD SOLD for $50,000K @ 7:00pm.

Thrill Ride Friday June 24, 2016 – SRT Viper GT

The Viper GT was just incredible.  It handled great, I mean it took these hair pin turns just incredibly well.
The Drive, Andy stated, are you familiar with this car cause your in for a wild ride. And it was, the acceleration was spectacular, Braking was even better.  It felt like my brain, my stomach, and everything within was hitting the back of my body.  Just a COOL experience.

            -CCCHR Jr

Thrill Ride Friday June 24, 2016 – Dodge Challenger - Hellcat

Being a larger modern muscle car, I was not expecting the car to handle like it did. It slid a bit into the hairpin turns but recovery was great with only a slight slide into the turns. Acceleration and breaking was impressive. It definitely helps to have a professional driver. This makes all the difference in performance driving. Overall a great experience at the Dodge Thrill Ride.

Mopar Guys, Have a Blast!!!!
