Barrett-Jackson Teams with Hot August Nights for Collector Auctions

By  | 

RENO, Nev. -- Barrett-Jackson, known as "The World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions," is coming to Reno's Hot August Nights.

According a press release on the Hot August Nights website, the "inaugural Hot August Nights Auction Presented by Barrett-Jackson" is set to take place during this year's event in the second week of August.

Proponents of the partnership say Barrett-Jackson teaming up with Hot August Night provides car enthusiasts with a two-for-one event in which they can display and admire classic cars, and actually purchase collector vehicles in auctions.

Barrett-Jackson's CEO Craig Jackson said, “The only missing piece in Hot August Nights’ successful puzzle was a Barrett-Jackson Auction. Our collectors in Canada, Seattle, San Francisco and the Silicon Valley have been asking — for decades — for an auction in their region. The partnership with Hot August Nights provides the perfect atmosphere of automotive passion to make that happen.”

The Hot August Nights Auction Presented by Barrett Jackson is scheduled for August 8th through 10th, 2013 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Other Hot August Nights events will take place throughout the Reno area the same week.
