Arizona Storm Damage at Barrett Jackson Empty

The storm that brought heavy wind and rain in Southern California late last week made its way across the state border where it took its toll on a number of collectible cars waiting to be auctioned off at the famous Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale, AZ.

The Russo and Steele auction house tent collapsed and was only one of hundreds of casualties that would make themselves known before the winds calmed down enough to allow owners and photographers into the staging area which housed hundreds of beautifully maintained cars. One section of the tent itself blew onto the nearby 101 freeway. If the rest of the tent had done the same, the cars being housed underneath would have fared much better. Unfortunately the giant metal poles that held up the tents, the size of telephone poles and still attached to the whipping canvas, battered cars with their unforgiving strength.

Only photographs can tell the story from here on out. One Trans Am in particular appears as though it was driven through a war zone. There will be many busy high-end restoration shops and insurance adjusters in the near future. These images are not for the faint of heart.

Holy crap! Makes me worry about keeping my car in it's tent garage. I always go out to make sure the edges are weighted down and get the snow off the roof.
