What do you get when bring several hundred of some of the most collectible cars together under the warm sunny January skies of Phoenix? You get a lot of gearheads, and a lot of people that just plain love machines.  You also get people that truly enjoy to drive and can appreciate what a potent combination a pro driver and a capable car can make.  Ford Motor Company is keenly aware of this as well, and has been for many years.  That’s exactly why they have looked to PFG to manage one of the most successful ride and drive programs that the Barrett Auction has ever hosted.  

For 9 days, PFG will provide the staff to manage a ride and drive that will see over 2,500 people get the chance to drive 2 Ford models from a list of 12 cars, and then go for a “hot lap” ride with a professional driver in a Shelby GT500, new-for-2015 Mustang GT, or Ford’s best kept pocket rocket secrets, the Focus and Fiesta ST models. 

Then, when they finish with the ride and drive program, participants can learn more about the models they drove by visiting the PFG-managed Ford Motor Company main indoor display. As in years past, PFG provides not only the staff to keep the show running, but also provides all of the sign-in kiosks, the associated software, and fully cleansed data uploads. 

Ford must see some value in what we’re doing, as PFG has been the go-to vendor for the Blue Oval for the past several years at Barrett Auctions across the U.S.

Before the sun goes down on this year’s BJ Auction there will likely be a couple of multi-million dollar bids for historically significant machines or simply utterly perfect rolling time capsules of automotive beauty.  And we’ll be there to see them all! 

If you’re in the area of North Scottsdale outside of Phoenix, Arizona, be sure to stop by sometime between January 10th and the 18th.  It’s one of those things that you have to see to believe.
