Two gas pumps were among the top sellers during the opening day of the 2019 Automobilia Auction. The unmistakable cadence of the auctioneers began to ring out over the Barrett-Jackson auction site today as the 2019 Automobilia Auction got underway. Nearly 400 pieces of our automotive past had their turn in the spotlight throughout the day from rare signs and garage clocks to pedal cars and gas pumps. Memorabilia from the early days of the tire industry featured prominently, with vintage items from Goodrich, Firestone, Goodyear and Michelin in particular. Top sellers of the day included a rare 1920s die-cut tin sign from Hood Tires, two 1940s gas pumps one from Mobil Oil and the other from Standard Oil and the hood off a 2006 Ford GT, autographed by Carroll Shelby and Bob Bondurant. The 2020 Toyota Supra , under wraps in the Sponsor Pavilion, awaits its unveiling Monday at 9 a.m. Elsewhere around the vast 73-acre auction site at WestWorld of Scottsdale, guests enjoyed previewing the more than 1,800 vehicles that will begin heading across the auction block tomorrow, enjoying the Dodge Thrill Rides and the activities in the Barrett-Jackson STEM Center, and exploring the nearly 300 displays from a wide array of sponsors and exhibitors. If youre coming to the event tomorrow, be sure to arrive early to witness the unveiling of the brand-new 2020 Toyota Supra at 9 a.m. in the Toyota display in the Sponsor Pavilion. That very vehicle will be headed across the auction block on Saturday, January 19, when bidders will vie for the rights to the very first 2020 Supra (Lot #3010), VIN 20201, with the entire hammer price benefiting the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
