Most of us are weekend warriors. We restore classic American muscle cars for fun. It is a passion that typically costs us a lot more than it makes us. That doesn’t mean we don’t dare to dream. What if money was no object? What if the rarest and baddest cars in the world were a check and a signature away?
For Craig Jackson that isn’t a dream. It’s just the way he lives. The CEO of Barrett-Jackson Auctions is more than a savvy business man, he is a true-blue muscle car enthusiast. A recent article on Forbes.com details the Barrett-Jackson empire and gives a glimpse into the CEO’s jaw-dropping, awesome, impossible, insane, I mean just “What!?” garage.
Muscle Cars/Roadsters on display include:
- 1966 Cobra 427 Roadster CSX 3138
- Hemi ‘Cuda
- 1961 Chevy Impala
- 1968 Shelby Green Hornet
- 1932 Custom Roadster
“Is there a YouTube video for this Shangi-la you speak of?” Of course there is. It’s YouTube:
Oh, one more thing. Jackson employs someone to make sure his cars get regular “exercise.” Best job ever.
