Classic and Vintage Car Auctions

January in Phoenix and Scottsdale: A Car Enthusiast's Dream Come True

January is the time and Arizona is the place — for classic car collectors, that is. There are collector car auctions and sales for buyers, sellers and spectators alike. This area is so well known for vintage and classic car events that it has evolved into a mega-event known as Scottsdale Collector Car Auction Week.

The first five events on this list are widely known to serious collectors. I am not personally familiar with the other events on the list. No matter which event you are attending, if you are purchasing a vehicle or other auction item, make sure you understand what you are buying and what the auction house rules are!

All dates and offerings are subject to change without notice.
