Lessons from Barrett-Jackson: Drive the Bid Podcast

It’s different being in the thick of it


Have you been to the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction before? On this week’s AutoHunter’s Drive the Bid Podcast, Derek Shiekhi and I discuss things we’ve learned by attending one of the auctions at Westworld. Being able to see the inner workings of the auction is an eye-opener, something that seeing the auction on TV doesn’t afford. A car may appear concours in front of a camera but, in front of your eyes, it’s much easier to deduce a vehicle’s condition and correctness.

I also discussed my experience driving in Colombia, my wife’s homeland. In case it needs to be said, they drive like crazy over there!

News included Derek’s take on Jeep’s announcement that the Wrangler Rubicon 392 will be discontinued. Will there be a “Last Call” the same way Dodge handled the Challenger and Charger models? I myself discussed Lamborghini’s achievement of selling over 10,000 units for 2023. Would it be any surprise 60 percent of them were Urus SUVs?

Drive the Bid Podcast concludes with several AutoHunter Picks including a 426 Hemi-powered 1971 Plymouth Barracuda pro-tourer, 715-mile 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51, 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I, and 1978 Dodge W150 Power Wagon 4×4.

AutoHunter Cinema has plenty of other videos and podcasts created by the experts behind, the world’s largest online collector car marketplace. AutoHunter brings forth a dedicated live customer support team, quicker auction listings and exclusive benefits for both buyers and sellers.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
