Barrett-Jackson in Coming to Texas for Their First Houston Auction
Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, is making moves towards the Lone Star State to host its very first auction in Texas. September 16-18, 2021 the Houston Auction will take place inside the NRG Center. The inaugural event will feature a wide range of vintage, customs, supercars and late-model vehicles, as well as authentic automobilia pieces.
“We’re incredibly excited to head out to Houston this fall for our first collector car auction in Texas,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Enthusiasts across the region, especially Texans, have a deep passion for collector cars. Only a few years ago, my search for the lost 1967 Ford Shelby EXP 500 prototype dubbed ‘Little Red’ led me to North Texas, where I found the fabled Mustang. There’s an unmistakable car culture in Texas, and we’re looking forward to fueling that passion with our inaugural Houston Auction in September.”
The NRG center is a fantastic location to hold an event of this magnitude. There is over 700,000 square feet of exhibit area that Barrett Jackson can use to display the vehicles for auction. The general area of NRG Park is also conveniently located only 6 miles from the Houston Galleria which features great restaurants and shopping as well.
“They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that’s exactly what you can expect from our inaugural Houston Auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “With the sprawling NRG Park as our backdrop, our docket will be as wide and diverse as the state itself. From the custom off-road trucks and SUVs that have made Texas the Truck Capitol of the World to modern supercars that race their way around Circuit of the Americas, we’ll have a car for every type of collector.”
There is a lot of excitement brewing in Texas about the arrival of this event and many collectors who cannot wait to place the first bid in Houston. We will certainly be making plans to get down there for the show.
