As an antique car fan, the start of the New Year is an exciting time for me. I look forward to returning to Arizona for ADESA Phoenix’s second annual Legendary Sales Week, then heading to the 42nd annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale. There’s no other car event in the world quite like this—it is a truly unforgettable week for any car lover.

ADESA Phoenix’s Legendary Sales Week is named appropriately—we’re welcoming celebrity guests throughout the week, including SPEED favorites Brad Fanshaw, Barry Meguiar and Courtney Hansen, as well as featuring a spectacular selection of inventory for our dealers. I’m also thrilled we can use the excitement of this event to host a charity auction for a Chevy Camaro SS convertible to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

To learn more about these events, you can read our press release here. You can also follow the ADESA Facebook page for updates and photos.

I hope you’re able to join me at these events as we celebrate a shared passion for great cars and the automotive industry. See you there!
