Arizona- Barrett-Jackson Auction / Ranch Visit

We are considering attending the Barrett-Jackson car auction in January in Phoenix and
then spending a few days at a local ranch or resort. Does anyone have any info about the auction or local ranches/resorts? Thank you.

January is a great to visit the Phoenix area. Our suggestions would be The Phoenician - 602 941-8200 or the Scottsdale Princess - 602 585-4848 (these are both high end) or for a little less, The Buttes in Tempe 602 225-9000 or La Posada in Scottsdale - 602 952-0420 or the Pointe Hilton Resots at Tapatio Cliffs in Phoenix 602 866-7500. These are all pretty neat places to stay - but you might have some difficulty in getting reservations as this is 'high time' in the hotel business in AZ. Good luck - hope this helped a little.
We haven't been to the auction because we aren't into cars but the reputation and number of people it attracts make it an obviously popular function.

For info on Barrett-Jackson, phone (602)273-0791. The show is Jan. 21-24 at WestWorld, 16601 N. Pima Rd., Scottsdale, according to 1/2/99 Phoenix newspapers, The Arizona Republic; Bob Golfen, auto writer. His story today says that for the first time there will be a special event leading up to the auction, a European-style road rally for high-end vintage cars that begins Jan. 16 and ends Jan. 20. For info on this rally, phone (602) 418-9603. Have fun.
