We fancy ourselves the grease-on-the-hands, budget-minded, weekend warrior types around here.

That’s the type of gearhead we typically write for as well.

But every once in a while it’s nice to pretend we’re hanging with the high-rollers. That’s probably why we spent so much time watching this year’s Barrett-Jackson Westworld of Scottsdale auction on TV. Or maybe us Midwesterners were just pining for the warmth of the Arizona sun.

Nah…it was all about the cars. And to some degree, it was the curiosity of seeing what some of those cars would fetch at auction.

In case you missed it, here are the Top 10 most expensive cars sold at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction:
