The Barrett-Jackson Car auction starts this week on the Speed Channel.

For those that don't know know about this, the auction is for classic and custom cars. Some of the finest cars ever have passed through this auction. IMO the best reality show on TV. Really cool to watch the bidding on some of the more rare cars.

There was a good series of behind the scenes at the auction that has been running on Speed as a prelude.

Anyone else watch this?

Ya,I love watching rich guys throw money around like I would if I had any...did you see Howard Hughes' Buick go for $1.5 million (US) ?

I have to go there one of these days, and theres lots of auctions(Not on TV) for cool cars and trucks and you don't have to be a millionaire to pick up a nice ride.

i would love to check out that auction. some amazing rides there

i saw one episode of the "behind the scenes" reality show...it was pretty good. have they shown more than one episode yet?

as for the rest of the network....i have not watched much of the speed channel, but i must say they have a few really cool shows. PINKS is pretty good. that is where 2 guys race each other for the pink slips of each others car. also good is Build or Bust, in which a novice motorcycle builder gets a chance to build his (or her) own chopper with Russel Mitchell from Exile Choppers.

and for good comic refilef (if just to laugh at the bad acting) check out Rick Fairless' show Strokers Dallas. its pretty funny

The behind the scene show is called Life on the Block and it's on during the afternoon. Shameless plug: check out speedtv.com for the tv listings. Auction is live all week long starting at 7:00 each night. Can you tell I work there? Enjoy the auction it's great.
