Barrett-Jackson to host inaugural Houston Auction in September
Automotive auction house Barrett-Jackson is set to host its first Houston Auction on September 16-18, 2021. The auction house will set up temporary quarters at the NRG Center when it rolls into town for the three-day event.
The Barrett-Jackson Houston Auction will be the first collector car auction the company has ever held in the Lone Star State. It's set to feature a broad range of vehicles including vintage and custom cars, supercars, and late-model vehicles. There will also be authentic automobile up for bid.
"We're incredibly excited to head out to Houston this fall for our first collector car auction in Texas, said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "Enthusiasts across the region, especially Texans, have a deep passion for collector cars. Only a few years ago, my search for the lost 1967 Ford Shelby EXP 500 prototype dubbed 'Little Red' led me to North Texas, where I found the fabled Mustang. There's an unmistakable car culture in Texas, and we're looking forward to fueling that passion with our inaugural Houston Auction in September."
Like the Mecum Auctions event in April, Barrett-Jackson will have an audience for their auction. Tickets to the event are available online only. Through September 15, tickets are $80 per adult; $60 for students, senior citizens, and military personnel; and $35 for children. On event days, tickets can be had at the rate of $90 for adults; $70 for students/seniors/military; and $45 for children.
Some VIP ticket packages are available. Pricing for those packages is not currently available though interested members of the public may currently visit the Barrett-Jackson home page and made a deposit on their VIP experience.
Registering as a bidder is also available online. On-site bidder amenities include one bidder badge (adult admission for each day of the auction), guest credential (adult admission for each day of the auction), a preferred parking pass (if available), access to bidder seating and the Bidder Bar, Barrett-Jackson event catalog. Tier 1 bidders also receive a bidder badge with drink tokens and one guest credential with drink tokens.e
"They say everything's bigger in Texas, and that's exactly what you can expect from our inaugural Houston Auction," said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. "With the sprawling NRG Park as our backdrop, our docket will be as wide and diverse as the state itself. From the custom off-road trucks and SUVs that have made Texas the Truck Capitol of the World to modern supercars that race their way around Circuit of the Americas, we'll have a car for every type of collector."
