Globally celebrated collector auto auction company Barrett-Jackson has become synonymous with the world’s ‘go to’ place for ultimate automotive finds.
The company’s recent Scottsdale event drew celebrities who rubbed shoulders with the ultra-rich as well as thousands of regular folk who were drawn to the auto eye candy. In the crowd was Moray Keith, owner of Dueck Auto Group and the Dueck Vintage Garage.
A B.C. resident, Keith’s love affair of all things automobile is well known and his own collection of vintage automobiles includes a number of Barrett-Jackson purchased finds, seven of which will be featured on display at the 2016 Vancouver International Auto Show, March 23-27 at Vancouver Convention Centre West.
