Collector car enthusiasts in South Florida have had the April 1-3 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction dates circled on their calendars for months. But an event getting similar buzz in the Palm Beach collector car community is the auction company’s annual Cruise-In at a local dealership.
Barrett-Jackson recently announced that this year’s Cruise-In will be held on March 28 at Wayne Akers Ford in Lake Worth, Florida from 10 a.m.-2p.m. Entry into the car show is free and all makes and models are welcome. Barrett-Jackson officials will be on hand to meet enthusiasts, judge entries and present three “Barrett-Jackson Choice Awards.” A “People’s Choice Award” will also be voted on by car show participants.
The first 100 registered entries will receive two free tickets to the 8th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at the Americraft Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Hot dogs, hamburgers and additional refreshments will be on sale to benefit charity, along with a “split-the-pot” raffle. A live radio remote and DJ are also scheduled for entertainment at the cruise-in.
The 2011 Shelby GT350 prototype is scheduled to be on site during the event. Rights to serial number 350 of the limited edition Mustang will be sold during the Barrett-Jackson auction on April 3. Wayne Akers Ford is located at 2000 10th Ave. North, Lake Worth, Fla., just west of Interstate 95. For early vehicle registration, visit www.wayneakersford.com.
