The Octane Lounge – Cheap street – March. 25, 2013


When you think of the Barrett-Jackson Collector-Car Events, you typically think of high-end, original muscle cars that command six-figure prices.

And then there are the classics that sell for millions, like the former Clark Gable-owned 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL that fetched $2.035 million in January at Barrett-Jackson’s flagship event in Scottsdale, Ariz. There, sales for the week totaled an astonishing $107 million.
