Barrett-Jackson Auction Benefits the Armed Forces Foundation

Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson Auction Benefits Armed Forces Foundation
 

At the January Barrett-Jackson collector car auction event, attendees teamed up to raise money for the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) and ended up reaching amazing goals toward helping this organization touch the lives of our soldiers and their families. When it was all said and done, Barrett-Jackson had raised $1,000,000 to donate to AFF.

A fact that most people aren’t aware of, the biggest killer of our American troops is suicide. In the past few years, the rates of suicide have surpassed the rates of soldiers killed during war-time, leaving nearly one soldier dead by suicide every day.

Soldiers who come home from intense battle often deal with debilitating physical ailments, require lifelong care and treatment, as well as suffer from serious mental disorders, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The AFF is an organization that works to fight back against those horrific statistics, offering help and hope to soldiers and their families, as well as burial services and financial assistance for those suffering from the loss of a loved one.

You can see the Barrett-Jackson video here, as well as view the military vehicle and Cessna plane they auctioned off to raise the funds. For more information about how you can support the AFF through funds or volunteer work, you can visit their website.

The Most Memorable Cars From Detroit

Best and Worst Car Reveals at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show

The Detroit Auto Show just wrapped up this past week, and we wanted to offer some highlights of the best-in-show from the week.

Everyone agrees that the front runner from the show was the all-new Ford F-150, which now has a body made out of aluminum instead of steel, saving it an average of 700 pounds (depending on which options are added). The F-150 has been the highest selling civilian vehicle in the United States for the last 32 years.

Another hot-topic at the show was the Toyota FT-1. Still only a concept car, the FT-1 was designed to compete with other 4-seat sports cars on the market, while demonstrating that Toyota can manufacture something that has appeal and intrigue greater than other sports cars of its kind. It is still in question whether or not the FT-1 will go into production or just remain a concept.

For more highlights from the show, you can check out this video from Wall Street Journal that will take you on a tour of the “best and worst” in Detroit:

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Unveiled At The Detroit Auto Show

This is our favorite time of year, when all the new car models are releasing and the hype is buzzing through the air, making everyone excited and anxious to see the specs on all the new classics.

It’s finally time for a fan favorite: the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette released last week at the Detroit Auto Show! Early information leaked about this new model, and let us in on its secret 620 horsepower and 650 pounds per square feet of torque.

Although specs weren’t supposed to release before the Detroit Auto Show next week, another story came through about the possible engine type, the rumored LT4 V8.

Well, the rumors were close, but they weren’t spot on. The Corvette Z06 model was supercharged with a 6.2L aluminum V8 which actually garners 625 hp, plus 635 lb-ft of torque.

Check out the video below to watch the live stream event of the Corvette Z06 reveal:

The HEMI Engine Turns 50

50th Anniversary Of The HEMI Classic Muscle Car and Racing Engine

This year marks the celebration of an extremely important piece of classic muscle car history! It is the 50th anniversary of the HEMI, the most recognized racing engine in the world.

In February of 1964, Chrysler released the brand new HEMI in their Dodge and Plymouth cars running in the NASCAR Grand National Series. With the HEMI’s 426-cu.in.V8, it went on to master the races of the following year, including taking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place at the Daytona 500 in ‘64.

Today, this engine is in racing machines across the country and across the world. The current Gen II 426 Race Hemi reaches speeds of over 200 miles per hour in the quarter mile, completing the stretch in just 7.78 seconds. While NASCAR no longer allows the engine in its races, the HEMI still dominates in the NHRA drag racing field.

For a full, detailed history of the HEMI engine, you can read the Hemmings article on this piece of classic car history. Do you own a car with one of these powerful engines under the hood? If so, how long has it been since you’ve priced muscle car insurance options to protect your investment? Classic Auto Insurance can offer you extremely competitive rates, as well as customized plans that will offer you personalized protection for your car collection. Give us a call today at 888-901-1338 for a free, instant classic car insurance quote!
