Scottsdale has always attracted big spenders, and there is no time bigger than the month of January for car enthusiasts and collectors–and boy is the excitement building! World renowned collectors congregate under the big whites for a week of bidding at what some consider the most thrilling events of the year: the Russo Steele, Gooding and Company, Barrett-Jackson and J. Levine Automobilia Auctions. Below is information on all 4 of these exciting venues.
Gooding and Company
