This week, the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company set up camp in Scotsdale, Arizona, to sell dozens of its amazing classic cars to the highest bidder.Some were once owned by celebrities, like Clark Gable’s 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL; others are incredibly rare, like the 1929 Isotta Fraschini that went for a winning bid of $1.32 million. All are gorgeous, and worth a lot of money.
