[]Lee Yoder

Looks like you guys had a great time. I have tickets already for Austin, my wife and I want to plan a trip up there to see the Canadian GP in the next couple of years.

[]Jim Pakeman

Have fun in Austin! Montreal is a beautiful city to visit and old Montreal and the harbour is a great place to have a drink on a patio and watch endless super cars cruise on by.

[]Hayden Baker

SO jealous! I hope the Miami Grand Prix pans out for next season

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Nice post! And I completely agree with both of your sentiments. This reminds me of how I became interested in cars, which basically happened because if it was sunny outside we were locked outdoors to play. In that weird outdoors place, my Dad would work on the '67 Mustang at times, and my Uncle would work on his '71 Cutlas at other times. So me and my brother would 'help' mostly by handing tools and pointing and asking questions, maybe kick a tire for good measure. That turned into RC cars and ultimately real cars. I did had access to video games and other distractions, but they were locked up in doors.

Flying to Vegas for the Barrett-Jackson auction this week! This will be my first time attending on

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Very cool, have a fun and safe trip!

[]Fox Nixor

I like the car museum at the imperial palace on the strip. Its been a while since i last went but it should still be there. They have various bentleys and astons and a LOT of hispano suazas or whatever those pre wwii cars are called. A huge museum!!!! Ü

[]Jim Pakeman

Thanks for the ideas! The car museum is still there based on my google search but called the Linq now. We will check it out. Also I've never been to a Ferrari or a Lamborghini dealership so thats a great idea 👍. Thanks again. Cheers

[]Fox Nixor

Also theres the lamborghin dealership at the henderson audi dealership, ferrari dealership at the aria is "interesting". Have to pay to get in but they have a few sweet examples and a decent ferrari brand gift shop. Theres an independent dealership near the silverton that specializes in rolls, lambo, bugatti and they had a spyker at one time.

[]Kit Lau

Those things are so fun to watch on TV! Never experienced it in person tho... must be exciting with all that money just being thrown around :o

[]Jim Pakeman

I found dealer/public auctions exciting lol so this should be a blast!

[]Basir Khan

Have fun! Love watching the livestream of these auctions.

[]Jim Pakeman

Thanks! Its been on my bucket list for a long time

I love everything with four wheels and some with less but it all started with a Corvette.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I think my love for cars started with seeing the '66 corvette that my dad owns just sitting in the garage everyday and sneaking some time in to just sit in it when no one was around. They are just absolutely beautiful machines.
