Article Contributed by Steve Burns

Each January marks the annual festival known as the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction. This year’s sale is significant as its Barrett-Jackson’s 40th anniversary event. Support events kicked off January 9th and hit full speed on January 15th. Included among the 1,000+ cars selling at no reserve are roughly 130 corvettes. Over the next few days we’ll take a look and some of the more significant Vettes crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson.

First up we’ll take a look at a couple of 1981 Corvette Coupes – Lots 441 and 441.1. Right now you’re probably wondering why we’re featuring a pair of 1981 Corvettes – especially 2 beige colored ones. If you caught B-J’s 2010 Las Vegas event, you’ll probably recall seeing this duo as they sold for charity for $300,000. The winning bidder promptly donated the cars back and here they are again for Scottsdale 2011.

[PIC] '07 Corvette Z06 Theft Recovery Is Missing A Few Items

I was perusing some Corvette salvage classifieds when I came across this ad for a 2007 Corvette Z06. It was listed as a theft recovery but obviously only part of the Corvette was recovered! This made for some interesting reading when describing the vehicle’s condition: Won’t Start, Missing Key. Dang! I was hoping to test drive it too.
